Sisters and Brothers, it is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Ray Cormier. Ray passed away at 72 years of age after being infected with Covid-19 in a Toronto long-term-care facility. Ray will be sorely missed by many, including his two sons and two grandchildren.
Ray began working in the office at CP in 1964 & retired in 2013. Most of us that work in the Running Trades in Toronto got to know Ray during his years working on the crew bus. Simply put, Ray was a very cool guy! He always had a good story to go along with the great music playing in his bus. Chatting with Ray was a great way to begin or end a trip.
On behalf of the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference Division 295 we extend our sincere condolences to the Cormier family. We share your loss.
Rest in peace Brother. We will miss you.
