Ray Lanyon

December 1, 1934 ~ February 20, 2013

Ray passed away peacefully February 20, 2013. He was born in St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox.

During his life he lived at Woodland School, Pearson Hospital, Osoyoos, Falls Creek Group Home, Vancouver, Poplar Grove Group Home in Vernon for 15 years and then back to Comox for the last four years of his life. Last month he was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. He spent his whole life being a role model to everyone he met. He taught us courage, perseverance, strength, optimism and had a great sense of humour. He will be dearly missed by his loving family and friends.

A special thank you from our family to Ray’s longtime devoted friend Margaret Dawson, Dr. Wiens, Dr. Winter and all the Earth Angels at The Views in Comox who made the last four years of his life very special.
