December 27, 1947~January 19, 2016
Ray Windecker peacefully passed away while surrounded by family on the evening of January 19, 2016, at the age of 68.
Born in Manitoba, he grew up on Vancouver Island with his three brothers, moving to Abbotsford in 1974 with his wife Debbie to take teaching positions after graduating from UVIC. Ray was a devoted teacher, and loving husband and father, doing everything he could to make his family happy, even while he battled illness for almost 20 years. Although his passing was fairly sudden, his family is content knowing that Ray is at peace and no longer in pain. Ray will be in his family’s hearts forever, survived by his devoted wife of 41 years Debbie; loving children Danielle and Jeffrey; sons-in-law Grant and Al; daughter-in-law Audrey; cherished granddaughters Avery and Emerson; and three brothers Allen, Bill and Terry.
