Meier, Raymond (Ray) Ronald On November 3rd, 2022 at Pasqua Hospital in Regina, a bright light passed away at 78 years. Ray was born in Kerrobert on November 27th, 1943, and grew up in Luseland, Salvador, and Leipzig, Saskatchewan before moving with the family to Moose Jaw in 1954. Ray was predeceased by his parents Frank and Mary Schreiber (Meier) as well as younger brothers Moe (2014), Leonard (2022), and his niece Michelle Gamble (2018). He leaves to mourn his beloved wife Kay (Kathryn), née Woodrow, and daughter Rhonda of Montreal. Ray is also survived by his siblings Alfred (Red) (Portage La Prairie), Agnes Thompson (Saskatoon), and Lorrie Gamble (Moose Jaw), as well as brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, nephews, and nieces on the Meier and Woodrow sides.
Always enterprising, Ray held numerous jobs as a teenager, most memorably working with his dad at Temple Gardens in Moose Jaw. His first business was an auto-wrecking lot, and he completed his mechanic’s certificate in 1967. From then until 1973 he owned Ray’s Super Shell in Moose Jaw, but by 1974, he was ready for the challenge and independence of a Snap-On Tools dealership, with a large territory surrounding Swift Current. A consummate salesman, for many years in succession he was the top salesman in Canada.
But as hard as he worked, Ray loved to play. Summers were spent camping and enjoying time with family and friends, particularly out at Buffalo View near Moose Jaw. Always a lover of fine automobiles, he enjoyed visiting at local Show and Shines. His cheerful, outgoing personality will be deeply missed by his family and his numerous friends from his travels. A memorial will be announced at a later date in the Spring of 2023. Those wishing to do so may donate in his name to their SPCA
