RAYMOND EDWARD JOSEPH BRUNEL (published on February 27, 2010)

RAYMOND EDWARD JOSEPH BRUNEL 1936 - 2010 Peacefully, on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 at Riverview Health Centre, Raymond Brunel passed away at the age of 73 years. He is survived by his daughter Penni-Rae and son-in-law Patrick Ozuk, longtime friend and companion Dianne Zadorozny, siblings Norman (Isabelle), Rene (Sasha Petrie), Solange (Gilbert Lachance), Ida (Jack Bevan), sister-in-law Victoria, and Penni's mother, Kathleen Brunel. He was predeceased by his parents Alphonse and Marthe Brunel. Ray was born in St. Lupicin, MB and moved to St. Boniface in 1941. During his years in Junior Hockey, he set many records that will never be matched or exceeded. After Junior, Ray had a long and distinguished Professional Hockey Career playing from 1956 to 1970. After his Professional Career ended, Ray worked at Labatt's Brewery until his retirement. He remained active and physically fit his entire life and was well known for his physical prowess and exceptional sports skills. His passion for sports continued whether it was on the ice with the Old Timers, on the golf course at St. Boniface, on the baseball field with the FLASHBACKS or on the Racquetball Courts at St. Boniface College. In 1997 Ray was proudly inducted into the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame. In honour of Ray's longtime membership with the Norwood Legion, we invite family and friends to join us in a Celebration of Ray's life to be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, March 1, 2010 at the Royal Canadian Legion, Norwood St. Boniface Branch No. 43, 134 Marion Street. We wish to extend our gratitude to the Doctors and Nurses at CancerCare and the Palliative Care Program for the care they provided Ray, with special thanks to Kris (PPC); Susan (SW); Nurses Rachael, Monique, Marisa, Alina, Tony; and Dr. Loiselle. Donations may be made to: W.R.H.A. Palliative Care Donation Fund care of Health Sciences Centre, RM S107-820 Sherbrook Street, Winnipeg, MB R3A 1R9. Glen Lawn Funeral Home 982-7550
