Raymond V. Stapleton July 16, 2017


Stapleton, Raymond V. Jr., 73, of East Providence passed peacefully Sunday at the Coventry Health Center.  Born in Providence a son of the late Raymond and M. Frances (Gallogly) Stapleton.

Ray was a third generation licensed funeral director for 50 years, and he was a Marine Vietnam Veteran.  For the last 13 years he participated in the Military Funeral Honors Program.  He and the men and woman of that program believed firmly that all veterans deserved to have the military at the families’ side at that time of need.  And from all of us families we thank those former military for their service and that labor of love bestowed on the families of veterans.  Semper Fi.

Ray was happiest when he was with family and friends who lovingly referred to him as a “good guy”.  He loved going dancing and taking dance lessons.  His love for sweets was well known which made his passing on National Ice Cream Day simply appropriate.

He leaves a beloved son, Raymond K. Stapleton of East Providence and a daughter, Kendra Stapleton of Orlando, FL, a sister Frances M. Vest of FL, and a brother James H. Stapleton and his wife Jane, of Cranston and many nieces and nephews.

His life will be celebrated with calling hours Thursday from 4-7pm in the Stapleton Family Funeral Home, 684 Park Avenue, Cranston with a Mass of Christian Burial in St. George Maronite Catholic Church, 1493 Cranston Street, Friday at 10:00am.  Burial, with Military Honors, will be in Saint Ann Cemetery, Cranston.
