Raymond Safer, 91

Shrewsbury – Raymond Safer, 91, died Saturday June 25, 2011, at the Holy Trinity Eastern Orthodox Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Worcester, following an illness. His beloved wife, Josephine M. (Aboumrad) Safer, died in 2000.

He leaves his daughter, Patti Moore and her husband Billy of Shrewsbury, with whom he lived for 11 years; his son, Raymond Safer and his wife Diane of Worcester; his daughter-in-law, Judy Safer Spratt of Douglas; his six grandchildren, Jef Safer, Nick Moore and wife Amber, Brian Moore and fiancé Andrea Mendonca, Stacie Moore, Jess Safer, and Amy Saulen and husband Steve; and his two great-grandsons, Alex and James Moore. He was predeceased by his son, Ronald Safer, in 2000, and by his sister, Julia Aboumrad, in May 2011.

Born in Worcester, the son of Tom and Alice (Bedig) Safer, he later moved to Shrewsbury. He was a proud World War II veteran, serving with the U.S. Navy in the Atlantic and Pacific, and was discharged as a Chief Machinists Mate.

Mr. Safer retired from Wyman-Gordon, where he worked as a machinist. He was a member of Saint George’s Orthodox Cathedral in Worcester, and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.

The Safer family wishes to thank Dr. Deborah Hazen and staff as well as the entire staff at Holy Trinity Nursing Home for the continued compassionate care that was given to Ray.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a graveside service honoring Mr. Safer’s life Sunday July 10, at 12 p.m., in Hope Cemetery of Worcester. There are no calling hours.
