HUGH OSCAR RAIKE
September 17, 1936 – June 16, 2022
With heavy hearts, we announce that Hugh, aka Bob, passed away on June 16, 2022, at the age of 85 years.
He is survived by his four children, several grandchildren, and sister Marina, who resides in the United States, along with her family.
Bob loved life, and living within the community at Legion Gardens with fellow veterans provided him with a lot of friends that kept life interesting. People loved to congregate and visit with Bob in his gazebo listening to his Newfie music while hearing his tall tales and his jokes.
We acknowledge that he is now with the love of his life; his wife, Shirley May, and that brings all of us comfort during this time.
The Raike family kindly requests that all of Bob's friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by sharing photos, memories, and stories, using the comment section on this page.
In Accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held, however; a celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, July 23, 2022 at the Legion Gardens located at 675 Talbot Avenue. Parking is limited.
We will be hosting a Barbeque after the celebration of life for our father and friend Bob.
