Raymond Arthur Piché
Raymond "Ray" Arthur Piché, passed away on November 4, 2020 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, at the age of 77. He was born in McLennan, Alberta on June 15, 1943, son of Dr. Arthur Piché and Mrs. Régine (Côté) Piché. Raymond was a successful businessman, with his last venture being an insurance brokerage in Edmonton. While Raymond was busy working and raising a family, he found time to give back to his community by volunteering in numerous organizations including Cub Scouts, Saint Joachim and Saint Thomas Manors, the Franco newspaper, school parent committees, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. His passions through the years included hunting, fishing, hiking and skiing in the Rockies, classic cars, travelling and RVing. He put his construction skills to good use, even building a house for his family. The house still stands today! He also had a very soft spot for dogs, especially his beloved Munchkin and Alfie. In retirement, Raymond fulfilled a lifelong dream when he moved to an acreage outside Cochrane, Alberta with unending views over the Wildcat foothills and the Rocky Mountains. As he got older and his health was failing, he moved to Nova Scotia and then New Brunswick to be close to his daughter Danielle. Raymond is survived by his wife of 55 years, Marie-Claire (Lussier), son, Paul (Marianne Remseth), two daughters, Nicole (Paul Hainsworth) and Danielle (Patrick Miklos), six grandchildren, Frederik, Helena, Daniel, Théo, Amélie, and Chloé and three sisters, Renée, Margo, and Evelyn. He was predeceased by his parents and sister Jocelyn. The family would like to request photo and special memory submissions to compile a tribute celebrating Raymond’s life. When completed, the photo tribute will be shared with everyone in lieu of a traditional funeral, in lead-up to a memorial at an appropriate time.
