Ray practiced Dentistry in the City of North Bay for over 50 years.  He was a very generous man personally and professionally.  Raymond built his life on the firm foundation of gratitude to God, devotion to his relationships, faithfulness to the church and dedication to work.  As much as Ray was involved in his community, his focus has always been on the love he had for his wife Germaine and pride for his son Paul.

We moved here from Toronto about the same time Ray opened his practice. First we knew him professionally and later as a friend. I will miss him for the rest of my time on the planet. He was a dedicated professional and he loved his family. We will think of him as living in the lives of those he touched.

Dr Blahey was a caring and fair boss to work with. I started in his office in 1990.
He treated his patients like family and always had their best interests in mind. He will be missed by me and many others.
I know he is in a good place. My condolences go out to his wife Germaine and son Paul.
Yours
