Raymond was a passionate dog lover. He leaves behind “Cody-Girl” The love of his life, an 8 year old Black lab-mix.
Raymond had a very outgoing and enthusiastic personality and a great sense of humor. He was kind hearted, the guy in your neighborhood that shovelled your driveway if you couldn’t, or mowed your lawn, or helped you paint, for no other reason than it was a nice thing to do.
However, he will also be remembered for being a skilled baseball player for over two decades.

However, he will also be remembered for being a skilled baseball player for over two decades.
Raymond played for Larry O’Connell in little league and he was dominant when playing against Conrose in the city championships.
As there was no bantam league after Little League, they created league called Beaver League. Not long afterwards, Jim Pelham got a 4 team bantam league going for 2 years. After those 2 years, Gerard Doucette, Bobby Hartnett and Ton Johnson created an « Awesome » team called CHFX, with Kevin Pelley’s father, Jack, sponsoring them. This team was together for 6 years and won many more games than they lost. Gerard « Deuce » and Bobby kept the team well grounded for sure.
Bobby Moore taught Raymond a fair amount about pitching. This payed off greatly because in his peak baseball years he received the opportunity to try out as pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
As the CHFX team went to Provost, Alberta in 1980 for The National Bison Championships and lost the bronze medal game in the bottom of the 9th inning. A heart breaking loss to everyone.
The following year Kevin Umlah, who played for years with Pelham Electric in the Nova Scotia Senior League, started his own team, thus the Halifax Capitals were born. Raymond played as a key pitcher for the Halifax Capitals during the 1980s when the team went to two National Championships. The Capitals won the NSSBL title in 1985.
One highlight of Raymond’s illustrious baseball career was a record he set in 1986 (documented in the NS Senior baseball league records). Raymond pitched an all-time league high for the number of saves in one season. Because of his high level of skill, Raymond was infamous for coming in late in the game and pitching the team back to a win. Coach Gerard Doucette he would tell Ray tp “just go in there and strike out the batter.” And he did exactly that many times!
Raymond is also mentioned in a prominent book about local baseball by Burton Russell called “Nova Scotia Baseball Heroics”.
Ray remained his whole life a dedicated Boston RedSox Fan, and enjoyed every opportunity he could get to go see them play.
Recently, Ray was coaching youth softball in Halifax and he too returned to play softball this past year.
So now Raymond it’s once again time to
