My heart goes out to the whole Fleming family. Your father was truly one of a kind. He was very focused on my father's well being. He arranged for his birthday gifts, organized gatherings, came to the hospital to visit and was really happy to just spend time with him. He was so proud that he was part of his first Bar Mitzvah class and he organized a very special event in honor of the 70th anniversary of his class. What a special guy! He will be missed! May you know no more sorrow!

Arthur and Josie Roskies - 16 days ago

Dear Elllen, Raphael was a man who did good deeds quietly, behind the scenes and without any fanfare. I have personal knowledge of his "adopting" an old man who had no family, and visiting him from time to time, and helping him out with clothes and some money. No one knew about this and a mitzvah that is done secretly is doubly commendable. He was a great guy. May his memory be a blessing to his whole family. Arthur

To the Fleming Family. I knew Ray as an enthusiastic volunteer who would visit our residents at Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre with his dog Finnegan. Ray would visit on weekends and then check in the following week with me to report on how his residents were doing. He always had an interesting anecdote to share and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him. Ray was a lovely caring man who felt it his mission to give back. My most sincere condolences go out to Ray's family. May his legacy of caring and your fond memories of him give you comfort.

I would send him a thank you note detailing what I learned, and he would send me a thank you note for my thank you note. So sweet. Morris joins me sending our warm thoughts and sympathy, Lillian

Beverly &Norman Cohen - 16 days ago

Dear Ellen Joy Shari and Mark. Firstly we want to extend to you our deepest sympathy on your loss. I am also very saddened as our friendship dates back to more than 75 years, with many memories that I will also cherish. To begin our Bar Mitzvah lessons at the Shaar with Mr. Lerner. then to the wild card games on Grosvenor, to sweet sixteens and double dating at Ruby Foos. We celebrated our weddings and also simhas together. We did lose contact for many years while our children were growing up, however we did rte connect when we met accidently in St. Adele and I convinced Ray to play bridge with us. Our friendship resumed where we left off and we had wonderfull bridge weekends travelling to Albany Smugglers Notch and Ottawa. Ray also organized a fantastic reunion at the Montefiore Club H.S. I am 60. w3hich was a huge success. I remember well our shopping days in Florida where Ray went looking for orange shorts and a pink top, wit slippers to match. He took up bridge like a real trouper, and Ray and Ellen Joy became a team that was difficxult to beat. Many many more woinderfull memories that I will never forger, and lastly his 85th birthday party only a few weeks ago. His dedication to volunteer work, visiting sick patients at the hospital with his little dog put a smile on all his patientsthat he visited. Never in 60 years did he ever forget a birthday or anniversary with a card and a telephone call, and I was not the oinly one on his list. May he rest in peace and long life to all of you Beverly and Norman Cohen

Rabbi Allan Nadler - 17 days ago

Dear Ellen and Fleming Family, When I first arrived at the Shaar Hashomayim back in 1981, there was a handful of interesting, some even a bit eccentric, "regulars" whose very presence always lit up my days, and those of many others. Almost all of them are now gone, alas. So it was with particular sadness that I read this morning of the passing of the effervescent, perennially cheerful and unfailingly colorful Ray Fleming. From his Oriental Kipah down to his fashionable shoes, inside and out, Ray was a distinctively interesting man. And always a source of cheer, good will and warmth in our often desperately cold and beloved Montreal. When, shortly after I moved back 'home,' after a 30-year absence from Montreal, and went for Shabbat services at "our shul", The Shaar Hashomayim, a 'makom kadosh' that always held a very special place in his heart and his life, Ray was literally the first person to greet (and instantly recognize) me as I was walking towards the entrance to the sanctuary, with a warm smile and, of course, a humorous line: "Rabbi Nadler, have you been lost ? No one could find you!" Ray was a gem, one of those unique, and unfailingly positive, personalities who just naturally bring light and joy into the lives of others, without even trying. Along with so, so many others in our community, I will miss deeply his regular, and always uplifting presence. May the light of his memory continue to bring us warmth, "Tehi Menuchato Eden"; "Zol der erd 'im gring zayn." (p.s. Classic photo! Made us smile one last time)
