Raymond Doner, 80, of Hyde Park passed away January 27, 2021, at home surrounded by his family. Raymond was born on July 14, 1940, in Burlington and grew up in Underhill. He married his best friend and the love of his life, Judith Clark on May 18, 1963. The two shared a union full of love, happiness and compassion until her passing in 2016.
The Doner's door was always open, as were their hearts, to everyone they knew. Raymond enjoyed nothing more than spending his days tinkering in his garage or completing various projects around his property, followed by nights in with his family. There was never a shortage of laughter and good conversation when Ray was around. A family man through and through, visits from his children and grandchildren brought him great joy.
Raymond is survived by his children, Raymond Doner and wife Shelly of Starksboro, Peter Doner and wife Amy of Richmond, Lisa Blair and husband Edward of Richmond, a very special niece, Kimberly Morrill, his grandchildren Peter Chaplin, Amber Thompson, Raymond Doner, Taylor Blair, and great granddaughter Harper Thompson.
The family would like to extend special gratitude to Mary and Neil Johnson and Barb and Aime Nadeau of Hyde Park, Barb and Joe Besette of Lowell, Lisette and Norman Roberge of Underhill, and numerous neighbors on Cooper Hill Road who were all longtime friends of Ray and Judy. Your years of friendship, love, and support will never be forgotten. Words are not available to express the admiration and appreciation to the whole staff at Lamoille Home Health and Hospice. We could not have been able to have Dad at home feeling comfortable and loved without your support. Stephanie, a special thank you to you for the gentle honest caring way you were with Dad.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made on Ray's memory to Lamoille Home Health and Hospice, 54 Farr Avenue, Morrisville VT 05661.
A service for Raymond will be held on Saturday, February 6, 2021, at 11am at the Our Lady of The Holy Rosary in Richmond. Masks are required and attendance will be limited to church Covid protocol.
