BLANCHARD, Raymond (1932- 2020)
Peacefully at home on October 2, 2020 at the age of 88, our beloved “Mr.B” left us after a mercifully short battle with pancreatic cancer.
Kind, generous and a true gentleman in every sense of the word, he will be missed beyond measure. Raymond dedicated over 25 years as a teacher and principal to the Montreal Catholic School Board. His memory will forever live on through the great stories he shared with those who were close to him.
He is now reunited with his late brother George (Mary), and his parents Arthur Blanchard and Jane Clarke, who left him much too early.
He lives on in the hearts of his wife, Frances McLaughlin, children Jane, Andrew (Beverly Fox) and Jennifer, as well as his adored grandchildren Alex (Daniel), Malcolm and Julien. He was the sturdy pillar that united his family and held them up with his wisdom, composure and generosity. He was also the very special “Mr. B” to Jayde and Jayme, as well as the countless other friends whose lives he touched.
He is also greatly missed by his beloved and loyal furry companions, Lulu, Mini-Pooch and Squabbles, and his love and kindness towards animals will always be remembered.
A big thank you to the dedicated and ever-hardworking staff at the Jewish General Hospital and the local CLSC Samuel de Champlain support team.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date, sometime in the Spring
