Raymond (Ray) Charles Beauchamp


Raymond (Ray) Charles Beauchamp
1949- 2018


Ray was born in Sudbury, Ontario, the second child of Maurice Charles Beauchamp and Constance”Connie” Edith (nee. Rose). He was blessed with the company of three sisters Susan, Monica, and Lois, and two brothers Mark and Colin.

Following graduation from Laurentian University, BSc. Chemistry, 1975, Ray found employment in exploration for mineral and petroleum resources in remote areas of Canada. These experiences led to a thirty year career as a chemist in several federal governmental departments. While in Ottawa, an office romance blossomed into a long and loving relationship with his wife Gayle (nee. Loyer) who survives him.


In 2011, Ray and Gayle fulfilled a life-long ambition, leaving the long winters behind and relocating to British Columbia’s Gulf Islands. From their home on Gabriola Island, they especially enjoyed scenic seascapes, the fine pubs, and restaurants, and the local music scene.
