Raymond Arnold Bushman, age 62, passed away peacefully at his home, in Brandon on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
Raymond was born at Proctor Hospital on October 18, 1960. He was the son of George Edward Bushman and Grace Elizabeth (Holcomb) Bushman. Ray spent his life in the Brandon area, attended the Brandon Training School where he met, Mark Scamman, who became his lifelong friend and caregiver. After the closure of the school in 1995 Raymond moved in with Mark. For nearly 28 years Ray enjoyed the birds and dogs, watching his favorite game shows and soaps, finding amusement in teasing many who stopped by to visit him. If you were lucky, he would shine a bright smile and offer a salute.
Ray had many who cared for him and will be especially missed by his friends; Oren Rhodes, respite provider Jane Browe, and guardian Mindy Hammann. He is survived by his brothers, Robert Bushman, and Ricky Bushman and predeceased by sister Joyce (Steves) Bushman, brother George R. Bushman and longtime friend and caregiver Greg Bishop. Ray’s family and friends are grateful and comforted to know that Mark provided Ray with a full life and excellent care.
Private services will take place, at a later date.
