Raymond B. McCall, 76, of Sanford, passed away November 18, 2022 in Maine Medical Center.
He was born October 20, 1946 in Philadelphia, PA. After graduating High School, Ray proudly served in the United States Navy in the Seabees during the Vietnam War. During his time there, he fought fires as well as doing construction of bridges.
Over the years he worked for the Tannery in Biddeford, then after working as a carpenter, decided to go out on his own, opening McCall Construction for over 20 years. He served his community as a volunteer fireman.
Ray was a great jokester, loving to instigate folks while lighting up a room. His laugh was infectious. Ray was a social butterfly but also a very stubborn Irishman. He enjoyed attending all the organizations he was a part of, including the American Legion, Post 19 in Sanford, Amvets Post 3, VFW Post 9935, Fraternal Order of Eagles #4292 in Waterboro, and the Wolves Club in Sanford. As an avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed fishing and hunting. Ray loved watching the old western movies, especially if it involved John Wayne and War movies depicting their history. Ray especially loved spending time with his large extended family.
He was predeceased by his parents, brother William H. McCall and sister, Marguerite McCall. Surviving are his wife of 14 years and companion of 23 years whom he worshipped dearly, Bonnie (Mitchell) McCall of Sanford; daughter, Sharon McCall and husband Mark Randall of Lebanon; son Dustin McCall of Sanford; 4 grandchildren, Colton, Jessica, Joshua and Seth, great-grandson Beau as well as an extended family and numerous friends.
