On June 25, 2023, our beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, uncle and friend had passed away suddenly at the Q.E. II Infirmary Site. Born in Antigonish on October 15, 1957. He was a much-loved son of the late Kathleen and John Corbett.
He worked at Pratt and Whitney Canada, Moir’s Chocolate Factory for many years, and before retiring from Commissionaires of Nova Scotia later in life.
Bunky was a jokester with a funny sense of humour, always joking around and playing pranks on someone. He had a huge love for his family and loved spending hours and hours on end with his grandchildren. Another one of his favorite things, was summer vacations with family, trips to the zoo and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events. Bunky was always seen drinking a double double from Tim Hortons and having a smoke, while chasing the summer cruisers and playing contest on the radio. He loved watching CNN, Swat, NCIS and Scooby-Doo.
Raymond is survived by his wife, Pamela of 29 years; children, Melissa (Johnny), Paul (Victoria), Crystal, Jennifer (Jason); grandchildren, Anthony (Laura), Jeremy, Brandon (Denise), Destiney, Sean (Brianna), Kennedy, Serenity and Ro'lyne; brothers, Eddy, Ron and John; sister, Mary; best friend, Jeff.
