1930 - 2015

Raymond H. Dembny, 84 of Rogers City and,
formerly, the Flint area, passed away,
January 19, 2015, at the Hospice House in Cheboygan.

He sailed the boats for a time and served in the Army before moving to
the Flint area where he worked at the General Motors’ Ternstedt Plant
for 30 years. After retiring in 1985, he moved back to his hometown
where he enjoyed an occasional trip to the fishing hole, drives through
the country, playing cards with friends, and blowing on his harmonica.
He was a “Jack-of-all-Trades” and loved to tinker, build or fix whatever
came his way.

Raymond is survived by:
his loving daughter, Lynn and much-loved son-in-law, Alan Dawson;
brothers, Leonard (Margic) and James (Eleanor) Dembny;
sisters-in-law, Gertie, Betty, and Cecelia Dembny;
numerous nieces and nephews as well as several close, dear friends.

He was preceded in death by:
his parents;
brothers, Edward, Alfred, and Louis;
sisters, Irene Lewandowski and Lucy Ceccacci as well as
his former wife, Lynn’s mother, Inez Bittner.

for the love, respect, compassion, knowledge, and support that you
brought into Dad’s home in his time of need, And lastly, a special thank
you to the staff at Hospice House in Cheboygan for taking such good
care of Ray during his last days on earth.
