Raul Manuel Simoes

January 29, 1934 ~ July 30, 2022 (age 88)


“It is with heavy, saddened hearts that we announce the death of Raul Manuel Simoes of Georgetown, Ontario, who passed away at the age of 88 on July 30, 2022, peacefully, at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. He was surrounded by his cherished family, his daughter Nancy and son-in-law Alec Grouni, and beloved grandchildren, Cassia (Joel) Del Grande, and Ethan Grouni. He leaves behind his son, Paul Simoes. Raul married Raquel on April 25, 1959, and once they immigrated to Canada, from Portugal, Raul worked as a buyer/accountant for Canadian Tire for 32 years.

Honesty was a hallmark of his character, and he received many professional accolades regarding his outstanding integrity, work ethic and accomplishments. He loved a good Portuguese dinner accompanied by a glass, (or 2) of red wine, of course.

Raul had an appreciation for spiritual things, and in recent years he associated with the Georgetown congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. We thank them very much for their interest in him and loving support during this difficult time.

Raul’s infectious smile and sense of humour, eternally optimistic outlook despite life’s challenges and sterling work ethic, are qualities impacting the lives of all who loved him, and those he leaves behind. He was a true gem, and will be dearly, dearly missed.

Raul’s life will be memorialized and celebrated by family and friends virtually - via Zoom on Saturday, August 20th at 1:00 p.m.

Our heartfelt thanks to our family and friends for the outpouring of messages of support, cards, flowers, and meals. These will be forever remembered and cherished.”
