Ray Allen Forsyth

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of Ray, a wonderful loving husband, father, and grandpa.

Ray was born in Brownlee, Saskatchewan and he went to school in Moose Jaw before moving to Calgary.

Ray is survived by his beloved wife, Rowena of 57 years; his three children, Vicki, Rhonda (Dave) and Cory (Ann-Marie); four grandchildren, Donald, Sean, Nathaniel, and Lindsay, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Harvey and Annie; brothers, Neil, Don, Gerald and Ed and sister, Olive.

He will always be remembered for his amazing sense of humor, his classic one-liners, and never-ending smile. His many passions were, curling, baseball, card games, golfing, and his unique woodworking skills of birdhouses, lot signs and name benches. He loved working in his garage and had every tool known to man.

Ray and Rowena were fortunate enough to travel many places, one of his favorites was walking the beach in Mazatlan. After he retired, they spent their summers at Hidden Valley Golf Resort where he was the golf Marshall and knew everyone and their dogs. They spent their winters in Mesa, AZ with close friends.

A special thank you to the excellent staff at McKenzie Towne Care Center for their care, kindness and understanding.

A Celebration of Ray’s Life for family and friends will be held at a later date.

If desired, a donation may be made in Ray’s memory to Alzheimer’s Society of Calgary, #800, 7015 Macleod Trail SW, Calgary, AB, T2H 2K6

I am proud and honored to have called you my uncle. I had the privilege of seeing uncle Ray in early March. Still had that twinkle in his beautiful eyes. He just lit up like a tree when aunt Rowena gave him kisses, such a smile, such a wonderful loving marriage you had. Uncle Ray, so funny, so loving, so giving. I will never forget the love I felt from you, aunt Rowena and Vicki for speaking for me when my dad passed. You were always there and had a way of turning a frown upside down. You are all together again and missed like crazy. I will miss having a sore face from your "one liners" of which you were a master at.
Hugs and kisses. Vivian Forsyth (FORSYTH PROUD) please give a hug to my mom,dad, brother and sister. Hi to Chan

I was blessed to meet Ray before he took ill. First impression was what a charismatic funny man. He was an amazing husband, provider and father. Ray loved life and good times and made sure everyone around him did too. His jokes will forever go down in history for all that were lucky enough to have met him. You were taken far to early Ray, and will be missed by all of the people who's lives you touched. Rest in peace Ray, I am sure there is a large gathering in Heaven ready to greet you! Love you, God Bless.

As I sit here trying to describe my father,many things come to mind. He was a strong,loving and caring man,that would do anything to help anyone.His abilities as a salesman were unmatched. I recall him telling me that the cost for the first fridge we had at the cabin was a dozen Nelson Homes hats and a door knob. Hahaha....who else could do that. He loved to host and entertain people. I don't know of anybody that doesn't have a funny story to say about him. He loved spending time in the garage building all sorts or useful items,from bird houses and potato bins,to step stools and golf balls that you clip on to hold your table cloth from blowing away. He had a knack for doing so many things. I will always be so grateful for him making me into the man I am today. I will always miss him,but I know I will never forget him. I LOVE YOU POP!!!♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
