Raymond Dunlop Junior

November 29, 1948 ~ October 06, 2019

Raymond Dunlop Jr. has passed away peacefully of natural causes on October 6th at his residence in Pompano Beach, Florida, while in the presence of his Hospice Healthcare Team.

Raymond was born in Meriden, Connecticut on November 29, 1948. Having already lost both parents, Helen Brookes and Raymond Dunlop Sr., he spent lots of time with all the remaining members of his family, which included two loving sisters, Mary Ellen DiPasquale, until her passing, and Judy Saver, who remains with us.

Raymond also had two daughters, Shannon, with whom he has continued a loving relationship, and Kerry, unfortunately, who is no longer with us. He also enjoyed spending time with his two grandsons, Vance, 7, and Grant, 10, who he loved more than anything else in this world. In addition, Raymond enjoyed his many loving nieces and nephews.

Having graduated from Ft Lauderdale University with a BA, Raymond spent his entire career with the U.S. Government as an IRS Agent, until he retired. Many years after his daughters were born, his marriage was dissolved through divorce. However, his passion for world travel was very evident in the more than eighty cruises he had taken. He was so fascinated with the arts and musicals that he spent many years as the volunteer head usher at the Coral Springs Performing Arts Center.

The Dunlop Family requests that in lieu of flowers donations may be sent to the Coral Springs Performing Arts Center. Raymond also enjoyed many activities at the Pride Center in Wilton Manors. In order to provide his friends with the opportunity of spending time together in his honor, the Dunlop Family has arranged for a Memorial Gathering on Sunday, October 20th, from 1:00 PM thru 3:00 PM, at the Pride Center at Wilton Manor. You are all welcomed to participate with his Family and Friends.

I am so sorry to learn of Ray’s passing. The loss of close family or friends changes everything. Grief is ongoing. May your memories sustain you at this time.

condolences to Shannon and her family. we knew ray for many years at sunrise lakes and through that friendship we persuaded ray to join our “second family” at coral springs center. ray spoke very often about his two grandsons and his family. all we can say is that the world was a much better place with ray’s presence. anita and I. along with our group at coral springs will always remember ray.
in our Jewish culture there is a word that aptly sums up ray’s life, “Mensch” – a fine gentleman who saw only the best in people and was respectful of all others. we know that ray is now in the company of Angels.

I had the great, good fortune to have had Ray Dunlop in my life. It was also an honor to know his very fine family.
When Shannon, Ray’s daughter, informed me of Ray’s passing, my heart was truly broken.
Ray and I enjoyed many glorious hours together and we did a great deal of travel of the world.
However, his family was his true love! In the courtyard of the Pride Center you will find a memorial brick that reads “GREATEST GRANDSONS – GRANT & VANCE – LOVE, POPPY”.
Thank you, dear Ray, for the many blessings you gave us all with your very large heart!
Love & Peace,
Hal Birchfield

I had the wonderful privilege to be wholeheartedly embraced as a niece to Uncle Ray. Clearly he loved being the connector of people…especially a newfound nephew, Michael, and niece, myself. His warm effervescent personality and bright smile will be fondly remembered always. I was glad to learn from Uncle Ray many things about the family and of himself. I am glad he told me that he was a praying man who believed our wonderful God answers prayer. Trusting him into God’s hands for an eternity of peace.
My thoughts and prayers are with Shannon and her family that Ray so adored. Sorry we cannot be in attendance to celebrate his life.

I met Ray when he and his partner Ron resided in Pompano as my tenants. They were great together and eventually Ray bought the unit 2 doors down and remodeled it beautifully. So sad he didn’t have long to enjoy it. He really loved his new home. He was such a nice man and we had great visits. Such a sweet face, such a sweet man. God Bless Ray, he is already missed.

People know not why others enter your life, for a minute, a moment, a lifetime. I am so glad to have met Ray as he joined our Coral Springs Center family and the bond we made in training and beyond. We all had the joy of knowing Ray and his always cheery smiles, laughs and stories of theater guests and travels. My life was made so much nicer sharing the time we had.
