Raymond Magner Obituary (2022) – Millbury, MA
Millbury, MA – Raymond Anthony Magner, 55, died suddenly on Saturday January 8, 2022 at his home.
Raymond was born on November 16, 1966 to Richard A. and Elizabeth C. Magner in Worcester, MA.
Ray worked incredibly hard, took pride in his accomplishments, and spent much of his life furthering his knowledge and education. He graduated the class of 1985 from Blackstone Valley Technical High School in the auto body program. He continued his education with a bachelor’s degree in communication from Worcester State University, an associate’s degree in visual communication and graphic design from Gibbs College, and earned a MassArt certification in the winter semester of 2021.
Ray owned his own business, Magner Design. LLC, where he designed and created products and branding for small businesses from 2011 to present. Before opening his own business, he was a pressman and foreman for 30 years for several companies, including the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and the Boston Globe, where he worked hard to provide his family with a comfortable life and an excellent education.
He will be greatly missed by his family; his son, Nicholas Magner and his wife Desiree Magner and their son SJ of Northbridge; his daughter, Jamie Delaney and her husband David Delaney Jr. and their daughter Shealynn of Northbridge; his mother, Elizabeth (Blondin, Magner) Kotzen of Millbury; his brother Robert Magner and his wife Sharon Magner and their children Robert and Raymond of Sutton; his sister-in-law Robin Magner of Paxton and his three children Melissa of Sutton, Michelle of Springfield and Richard VI of Paxton; great-nieces and nephews Alex, Cassie and Liam. Raymond is predeceased by his father Richard Magner IV, his brother Richard Magner V and his stepfather Marshall Kotzen.
The time spent with her children and grandchildren was her greatest treasure in life. Ray enjoyed attending sporting events and watching games at home with his son Nick and grandson SJ. He also spent time going to comic book stores and attending Comicon with his daughter Jamie and granddaughter Shealynn. He enjoyed Sunday dinners with the family where they spent time playing games and watching movies.
Ray had many interests and hobbies which he shared with his family. He enjoyed traveling the world, driving across the country and often reminisced about his trip to England and France with his daughter Jamie. He enjoyed listening to science podcasts while he hiked and did his housework. He has devoted the past three years selflessly to being his mother’s caregiver.
Per his wishes, there will be no services.
