DARWIN LINDSAY RAYMOND
August 23, 1964 - September 29, 2020
It is with great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our friend, cousin, son, brother, and uncle; Darwin Lindsay Raymond on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at the age of 56.
Darwin was pre-deceased by his biological father Richard. Remaining to forever cherish his life is his mother Teri Williams, sister Laurie Filmer, sister Tammy Bradley, many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Darwin was born in Vancouver, BC and grew up in Edmonton, AB. Darwin was a huge Edmonton Eskimos fan, and his room was painted and furnished to reflect that.
He came to live in White Rock, BC to work with his stepfather Arthur in the late 1980s building pallets. He lived with Ina Williams, Arthur’s mother and helped take care of her. It was there in 1991 that Darwin’s cousin Jim and his family came to live together in Ina’s house. Upon Ina (grandma’s) death Darwin left White Rock, and moved with Jim and his family to Yorkton, SK and then to Manitoba in 1997.
Darwin worked in Brandon at the Brandon Shoppers Mall as a custodian until the move to Winnipeg in 2002. Darwin started working for Allan’s Glass and Aluminum Products in 2003 as a driver and installation helper until it changed hands. He stayed in the glass business working for All Weather Windows, Security Glass and then to Glass8Inc. He loved the comradery that he experienced with his co-workers and the customers he interacted with.
He developed many friendships and would often be at a friend’s house visiting and having a coffee and chatting about football teasing his friends about every Edmonton Eskimos win.
Since 1991, Darwin has been a Netzlaw family member. He helped us care for and raise our children. He was helpful around the house, He helped with the setup crew at church, and made friends easily wherever he went. He was always good-natured and generous. He will be especially missed by Jim, Christie, Stirling, Gabriel and Graham.
Darwin’s family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by watching the photo-biography above. They also encourage the sharing of photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.
