September 14, 1935 – August 5, 2020
On August 5, 2020, at his home in Bonnington, BC, aged 84. Raymond was born on September 14, 1935, to parents Emil and Anna Perpick, and raised on the Perpick family farm near Bladworth, SK along with his siblings Hazel, Stanley (Bud), Joseph, and James.
During his high school years he met and fell in love with his future wife, Pauline Louise Bublish. They married on June 6, 1959, and were happily together until Pauline’s death in 2018.
In 1962, Raymond and Pauline moved to Humboldt, SK, where Raymond established and ran the successful Humboldt Feedlot and Auction Mart, and together with Pauline, created their family of Mary Jo (Margo), Patrick (deceased), Laura and Jennifer.
In 1978, the Perpick family moved to Saskatoon, where Raymond developed business interests in real estate, life insurance, and financial advice. From 1987, Raymond and Pauline shared their time between Saskatoon, where their daughter Laura continues to live, and travelling regularly to New Zealand, where Mary Jo (Margo) and her family live, and BC, where Jennifer and her family live. Jennifer and her family were with Raymond when he died suddenly.
He is survived by his loving children and their partners, Hamish Kenworthy, Michael Grass and Eric Chevalier, and his beloved grandchildren, Austin Grass, Vincent and and Lola Chevalier, as well as his brother Bud (Stanley).
Given the current restrictions on travel between Canada and New Zealand, and on gatherings, due to COVID-19, a service and celebration of Raymond’s life will be delayed, probably until the summer of 2021.
Special thank you to Cindy Moleski for capturing, and retrieving this special photo of Ray.
