Obituary of Raymond Leonard Jeffrey

It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Raymond Leonard Jeffrey of Louisdale, that occurred at the Strait Richmond Hospital in Evanston on July 5, 2022. Born in Louisdale, on October 1, 1947, he was the son of the late Leonard and Mary (Stoj), Jeffrey. Raymond, locally known as Butch, could be found in many places. He could be in his shed folding flyers, in the kitchen bagging smelts, playing his guitar at a kitchen party or the local parish choir, peddling fish with his brother Leonard, or making his way around local establishments telling a good … or bad joke. Everyone that knew him has a story. He could make a connection with anyone he spoke to, and most times a friendship. He loved his grandchildren with all his heart and would always have a bag of chips to share by his chair. Music would always bring our family together, where a good time, a good tune, and a few jokes were always promised. He was an avid community supporter whether it was sporting your business attire or pen in his pocket, sell tickets or lending a hand wherever he could. He will be missed by everyone who got the chance to know him. He is survived by his wife, Marigold “Margo” (Short) Jeffrey; daughters Angela Boudreau (Brian), Rebecca Jeffrey, (Gary), Jennifer Jeffrey, (Clyde); grandchildren, Miranda Poirier, (Eli), Courtney Marchand, (Trevor), Chelsey Marchand, (Wendell), Nathan Boudreau, Jalen DeCoste; great-grandchildren, Abby Poirier and Carley Sampson; brothers, Johnny Jeffrey (Mildred), Edward Jeffrey (Marion), Chester Jeffrey (Darlene), Francis Jeffrey (Ann); brother-in-law Benny Marchand; sisters, Anna Landry, Stella Sampson; several nieces and nephews.
