Obituary for Raymond L. Simard

September 25, 1940 - January 16, 2020
Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 79


Raymond L. Simard, 79, of Manchester died January 16, 2020 after a period of declining health.
Born in Manchester on September 25, 1940, he was the son of Herve and Jeanne (Desilets) Simard.
Prior to retirement, he had worked as a heavy equipment operator for R.S. Audley Construction for many years, taking pride in his work. Ray was often seen on his bulldozer building the roads most of us drive on today.
Ray loved watching sporting events, especially games where his beloved family members competed. He enjoyed watching old Western movies and game show re-runs. He was a true lover of all animals and treasured time spent going for rides and playing with his shared dog Jordan and previously, Penny and Shredder.
Ray dedicated his life to helping others and was admired by all who knew him. He loved spending time worshipping and volunteering at church. The family would consider it a great blessing if all who knew him came to celebrate his wonderful life with them, on Tuesday morning.
