Raymond Tomchik Obituary

WARREN – My brother, my best friend and my hero Raymond M. Tomchik passed away Tuesday, September 5, 2023 at Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.

Ray was born in Chicago, IL on December 8, 1950, son of the late Michael and Dolores Nagy Tomchik and he was 72.

Following high school, Ray joined the United States Marine Corp and was a proud USMC veteran. He worked and was a member of the Laborers Local 125 in Youngstown.

Being an adventurer, Ray traveled and worked in Texas and later in California, where he became disabled. Determined and brave, Ray never gave up. Unable to walk, Ray was confined to a wheelchair and later to a power chair, which he loved driving, showing off how he could maneuver through tight spaces and in reverse.  

Ray had love and kindness in his heart for everyone and was a gift from God.

Ray leaves to cherish his memory, his sister and caretaker, Dolores Griffin and his nephew, Daniel Griffin his brother, David Tomchik and his wife, Marietta, three nieces, Michelle (Kevin) Burtnett, Jamie (Tom) Larson, and Jodi (Brian) Gardiner, great nieces and nephews, Jocelyn, Andrew and Tom Larson, AJ, Sydney and Jake Gardiner and Kevin, Gabriella, Vivian, Brendan, Genna and Audriana Burtnett.

Preceding him in death were his parents, sister, Marianne Tomchik, brother Michael Tomchik, brother-in-law, Daniel W. Griffin, and his special Aunt Irene (Renee) Jamrozik who was like a second mother to Ray for 43 years after his mother passed away at an early age of cancer and his longtime companion, Leah Flock.

Ray’s memory will live on for always. If love could have saved you Ray, you would have lived forever.

The Griffin and Tomchik family will receive relatives and friends from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tuesday in St. Edward Church followed immediately by A Mass of Cristian Burial celebrated by Monsignor Robert Siffrin.
