Obituary for Raymond Eugene Subers

August 30, 1936 - June 6, 2020
Kennett Square, Pennsylvania | Age 83


Raymond Eugene Subers, age 83, passed away peacefully at home in Kennett Square, PA, surrounded by loving family on June 6, 2020. Predeceased by his wife and love of his life, Mary (nee Govan) and his son Raymond (JeriBeth). Ray is survived by sons Ronald J. Subers (Lisa), Gary R. Subers (Renee), Glenn E. Subers and twelve grandchildren. He is also survived by sister in law, Phyllis (Mickey) Subers, sister in law and brother in law, Eileen & Eli Dabich and brother in law, Charlie Govan. Last surviving child of Walter and Marie Subers, Ray was predeceased by brothers Walt, Bill and Dave, as well as his sisters Marie and Eleanor. Nothing compared to the love and devotion he had for his family.

Ray attended Sharon Hill High and Drexel University, where he became a member of TKE fraternity. After graduating from Drexel, he became a commissioned Army officer. Even after his honorable discharge, he remained an Army man to his core. Ray owned and operated S&S Remodeling Contractors, Brookhaven, PA for nearly sixty years, a business he started with his father and brothers. He enjoyed longstanding relationships with his customers and believed that earning and maintaining their trust was paramount to success.

Ray was also a man of great faith and a dedicated member of St. Cornelius Church, Chadds Ford, PA. His faith sustained him, setting a wonderful example of what it means to trust in God's plan. Through the grief of losing his wife, son and siblings, he never questioned that plan. Even in his final days, he understood that it was time to let go. He trusted God, above all else.

He loved to travel to the Caribbean and Europe, but his favorite place on earth was the "seashore". Ray spent countless summers there making memories with family and friends. Some of his most peaceful times at the shore were spent with his wife, Mary, in the cold days of winter. It was always a special place for him.

Ray was the very best in what a man can be ... thoughtful, caring, considerate, intelligent, wise, devoted, good natured, strong, loyal. We are all better people for having had him in our lives.

Funeral will be private.
