RAYMOND GEORGE CHATWELL
September 17, 1924 – October 16, 2021
In loving memory of Raymond George Chatwell, Raymond died peacefully at the Manitoulin Centennial Manor on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at the age of 97. Born to Mabel (nee Coultis) and Henry Chatwell on Manitoulin Island on Wednesday, September 17, 1924. Predeceased by his wife Faye on Sunday, June 28, 2015. Loved father of Shirley (Dave) Nelder, Sharon (Chester) Spry, Ronda McDonald (Don Banfield), Perry (Barb) Chatwell and Shelley (Michael) Brown. Predeceased by daughters Patricia and Mary Ann and son-in-law Michael McDonald. Raymond was the proud grandfather of 14, great-grandfather of 30 and great-great-grandfather of two. Dear brother of Hazel (Bill) McMullen (both predeceased), Lyman (Bertha) (both predeceased) and Dell (Gladys) (both predeceased). Dad is now resting after a long life of hard work. Moving buildings, building roads, digging and excavating with his loader and gravel trucks, hauling pulpwood, building septic beds and farming on the farm that he was raised on. At the end of the day he always had time for people dropping in for a visit, a game of euchre, or a delicious meal that mom (Faye) had cooked. He had so many funny and interesting stories that he liked to share with his kids and grand kids. We will miss him deeply and always cherish the time we spent with him. God bless you Dad XXOO. Family and friends will gather for a graveside service at Hilly Grove Cemetery on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 3 pm with Dawn Dawson officiating and Weston Leeson helping.
