Obituary of Raymond C. Finch

FINCH RAYMOND  C.  – At the Down East Community Hospital in Machias, ME, U.S.A. on Saturday, March 30th, 2024; Raymond Calder Finch; husband of the late Vivian Margaret (Reicker) Finch. Born in New York, N.Y. U.S.A.; he is the son of the late Raymond Wilson & Augusta E. (Calder) Finch.

      Raymond worked in his life as a machinist and a commercial fisherman. Early on he worked for the Sugar Refinery in Saint John, NB, then on to the Woodland Mill in Woodland Me, U.S.A. When he finished there, he decided that his love was for the water,  so residing on Campobello, he went into commercial fishing, working with handline and ground fish.

      Raymond was a member of St. Anne’s Anglican Church in Welshpool. 

     Raymond is survived by his son Raymond G. “Gordie” (Shirley) of Fairborn OH, 3 daughters Bonnie Bryant (David) of Jacksonville FL, Deborah Duke  of FL, & Cindy Welock of Jensen Beach FL, 8 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.

      Raymond was predeceased by his wife Vivian, his daughter Linda Otto and his son in law Doug Welock.

     A service in celebration of Raymond’s life will be held on Saturday April 6th, 2024 at 2:00 pm at St. Anne’s Anglican Church, Welshpool Campobello, NB. Canon Kevin Borthwick officiating. A reception will immediately follow the service, to be held in the church hall. The burial will take place later in the spring in the adjoining church cemetery.

      The family will receive friends during a time of visitation on Friday at the church from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm.

      In lieu of flowers donation to the Anglican Parish of Campobello Cemetery Fund would be appreciated by the family. On line condolences to the family or donations can be made at www.humphreysfh.com
