Raymond Goguen

Obituary of Raymond Laurie Goguen

It is with profound sadness that the family of Raymond Goguen announces his peaceful passing, surrounded by his loving family, on Thursday, November 30, 2023, at Bobby’s Hospice. He was born on November 1, 1948, in Saint John, NB to the late Andrew and Rosalie (Gallant).

He leaves to mourn his wife of 52 years, Julie (Dignard) Goguen; his daughter, Jamie Goguen (Sean), their children Adrian and Brookelynn; son, Adam Goguen (Jennifer), their children Nolan and Vivian; and his sister, Bernice Goguen.

Besides his parents, Raymond was predeceased by his brothers: Roger, Paul, and Donald.

Raymond was employed at Ocean Steel as a Welder for 43 years. His hobbies were long walks, crossword puzzles, he was an avid reader, loved music, and had a passion for thrifting and yard sales. He had a special love for his grandchildren.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Reiman, Dr. Mackin, Dr. Chris O’Brien, Dr. Sealy, Dr. Doiron, Dr. Leroux, the entire nursing staff and other doctors who helped to care for Raymond on 4BS, 5AS, and Bobby’s Hospice throughout his illness. You were a good team. Thank you for all your kindness and support shown- you are all angels.
