Raymond E. Carow, 90
Raymond (Ray) E. Carow, 90, formerly of New Richmond, passed away peacefully in his sleep on May 3, 2009, while at home surrounded by four generations of family.
He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Ruth; his four children, Stephen (Diane), Susan (Lee Mitchell), Cindy (Bill, deceased) and Michael (Jessica); 12 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
After raising their four children in Minneapolis, Ruth and Ray made their second home in Pillager, Minn., where Ray worked for Madden's Golf Course until his 80th birthday.
Ray will always be remembered as a generous family man, a devoted Minnesota hockey and Green Bay Packer fan, a lover of the outdoors and for his witty outlook on life.
