September 9, 1954 - August 2, 2022

It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our forever loved husband, father and grandfather, Raymond Alonzo Hefford Jr. Age 67 years.

Predeceased by his parents Raymond Sr. and Cynthia Hefford, baby sister, brother in law Frankie Bavis, father in law Joseph Bavis Sr, and niece Stephanie Bavis. 
Leaving to mourn his loss with the fondest memories, one day short of their 43rd wedding anniversary, his wife and best friend Christina (Bavis); his daughter Jessica, whose bond was none other but the perfect version of a father/daughter relationship; his pure pride and joy, his grandson Jared Raymond (Picco); his fur buddy Gia; brothers Doug (Shirley), Don (Karen), Jerry (Lynn), and Ross (Leanne); and sister Elizabeth (Noel).
Also mourning his loss, the Bavis family:  Mother-in-law Bernadette; his brothers-in-law Paddy (Sharon), Maurice (Daphne), Nick (Marilyn), John (Linda), Joe (Dianne),  and Gerard (Deanne); and sister-in-law Joyce (John); along with nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. 
Ray had a smile for everyone and was loved dearly by all that knew him. He found great pleasure in his cabin, his boat and his guitar group, but most importantly his favourite thing to do was follow Jared as his number one fan in whatever sport he was playing. 
A special thanks to the nursing staff at St. Clare’s, 6th floor east, for their care and compassion during each stay from February until now, and to Dr. Janelle Taylor, a pure angel, are the only words to describe her. 
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Maher's Funeral Home, Placentia.  Visitation to take place Tuesday from 2pm to 5pm and 7pm to 9pm, Wednesday from 12pm to 7pm, and Thursday from 9am to 11am.  Funeral Service to take place 11am at Maher's Funeral Home, Placentia, on Thursday, August 11th, followed by inurnment at Dermot McGettigan Memorial Cemetery, Southeast Placentia.
