PEDDLE, Raymond 57
of Beaver Bank
The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, January 25, 2010

passed away January 23, 2010, in the VG Site, QEII. Born in Whitbourne, N.L., he was the son of the late Emma and Dolah Peddle. A proud father of two, he enjoyed the intimacy of special times spent on family vacations. The one thing that Ray would always make sure of was that someone was at the track with his son. Although Ray was only new to the sport of oval track racing, he enjoyed every moment of watching Sean race. If it was not for the love of fishing that Ray felt he had to pass onto his son, Ryan would have never left his video games. Ray's career goal was to always help other people, starting as an orderly at Toronto East General, where he met his future wife, Susan. After following his beloved to Nova Scotia, Ray advanced his career by achieving his diploma in Social Work from NSIT. In his 30 years of service, he has helped countless families through difficult times.

Ray was introduced into scouting in 1999 and quickly developed a passion for the movement. Not only was he a colony leader in Beaver Bank for seven years, he was also the advisor to the youth reps of Sespenaak Centre, which put him in an active role in countless scouting events. From the time he started as a scouter to the day that he regretfully had to withdraw, he tried his hardest to improve the movement, no matter what. A Newfoundlander at heart, he had a genetic love of the sea which drew him to the beauty of the tall ships. So the family rec room is now decorated in the tall ship theme. Over all the things that he enjoyed doing in his lifetime, he has gathered numerous friends and cared for all who he has met.

Ray is survived by his loving wife, the former Susan Cross; sons, Sean and Ryan; sisters, Annie (Pat), Ruby (Peter), Linda (Leanord), Sharon (Ray), Judy (Glenn); brothers, Bob (Freda), Wes (Grace) and Don (Janet); several nieces and nephews, including his goddaughter, Chrissie. Visitation will be held today, January 26, from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and Wednesday from 12-2 p.m. in Atlantic Funeral Home, 125 Sackville Dr., where funeral service will be held Wednesday, January 27, at 2 p.m. Burial in Oakridge Memory Gardens. Reception to follow in funeral home recreation lounge. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Peddle family and/or Second Beaver Bank Scouting.
