Raymond John Worobo was born in Provost, Alberta, on August 27, 1944, to his parents Bill and Jean Worobo. After attending Altario School, Raymond began farming, which would become his life’s passion and calling. He married Donna, the love of his life, on April 22, 1967. During their 54 years of marriage, Raymond and Donna were inseparable, and they did everything together; from calving, harvest, and hunting. They raised their two sons, Randy and Rod, on the family farm.
Raymond loved to farm. He dedicated his life to farming, greeting each planting season with stoic optimism and each harvest with the satisfaction of a job well done. He also loved sports, especially hockey and ball. He played fast ball for many years, later coached minor hockey and ball, and most recently relished cheering on his grandchildren at their hockey and balls games. For more than 65 years, he was well known to be the most loyal Montreal Canadien’s fan, and each year he enjoyed bantering with family and friends over predictions of the Stanley cup winner. An avid deer and pheasant hunter, he formed many long-term friendships with fellow hunters from all over the province and country, and family hunting outings were a bond that united three generations.
Raymond passed away with his wife and sons by his side on October 19, 2021, at Red Deer Regional Health Center at the age of 77 years.
He will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by his wife, Donna; children, Rod and Randy; grandchildren, Matthew and Kylie; as well as relatives and friends.
Raymond was predeceased by his father, William (Bill) Worobo; mother, Jean Worobo; father-in-law, Elmer Landmark; mother-in-law, Betty Landmark; sister-in-law, Greta Rimmer; and brother-in-law, Ken Spence.
