Raymond Albert Kiesman

May 26, 1930 – June 22, 2018

Passed away on Friday, June 22, 2018 at the St. Boniface Hospital with his family by his side.

Raymond is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years;  Theresa (nee Cebriy), daughters Faye (Al), Cindy (Ken), and son Mel (Sheila); 8 grandchildren, Janet (Phil), Laura (Kent), Zach, David (Mikaila), Kristine, Matthew, Isaac and Marguerita; 4 great grandsons, Euan, Noah, Colby and Danny; 2 brothers, Ernest and Leo (Rose) and numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Raymond was born in Moosehorn, Manitoba and moved to Winnipeg when he was 20.  The highlight of his working career was his employment with Motorways for 35 years.  He was an avid football and hockey fan and he and mom enjoyed many years with Bomber season tickets.  Retirement was spent at his hobby farm in Matlock, Manitoba, fondly referred to as the North 40, where many family gatherings were held.  Dad’s greatest joy was having his children and grandchildren together for mom’s delicious fried chicken, perogies and cabbage rolls.  Raymond and Theresa spent his later years back in Winnipeg. 

Thank you to the staff of St. Boniface Hospital for their wonderful care and compassion.

A private family gathering will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to a charity of one’s choice.

Interlake Cremation & Memorial Services in care of arrangements.
