Reino was a member of my mother's family (Makinen) in Sudbury, Ontario. We lost touch with Reino some time ago. Very sorry for your loss.

Very sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a very nice man-I always enjoyed our chats whenever he would come to pick up Tyler and Erica.You were blessed to have great parents Judy- and no matter how old we are when you have great parents as we both had it is very difficult when they are no longer here with us.Let your faith help you get through this difficult time.
Sorry for your loss

I worked with Ray at AECL many years ago and he was always a pleasant, easy-going and good spirited co-worker. Rest in peace Ray.
