Tribute & Message From The Family

Raymond F Daly Sr. of N Easton, MA, born Jan 23rd 1932 passed peacefully at his home with his family by his side.

Raymond is survived by his wife Helen of 70 years and had 8 children, Raymond F Daly Jr and wife Marie of Taunton MA, Glen Daly and wife Mara of Raynham MA, Michael Daly of St Louis Park MN, Diane Sherrick and husband David of Middleboro MA, Debbie Benjaminsen of Taunton MA, Robert Daly and wife Karen of Easton MA and Christopher Daly and wife Raechel of Bridgewater MA and the late Donna Shockley. Also survived by his 17 grandchildren Raymond Daly III and Lauren Daly; Lena Finch and Edward Shockley Jr.; Justin and Ryan Benjaminsen; Ashley and John Sherrick; Matthew and Chelsey Daly; Jordan Devin, Jessica, Christopher and Ethan Daly; Morgan, Hunter, and Robert Daly Jr.; and Great Grandfather of 4; to Julius Shockley, Lillian & Daniel Daly, and Matthew Daly. Also survived by sisters Patsy Mann and Nancy Stimpson and brother Tom Daly.

Raymond, otherwise known as "Dad" and "Grandpa" engaged in an active, magnificent life that he loved to share with all 4 generations that he created. From his younger years in the Navy, he served our country for 8 years in. It was during his time in the Navy and beyond, that he was then promoted to the ultimate title of "Dad" to eight children. Throughout Southeastern Massachusetts, Raymond Daly Sr. and his family created a legacy that lives on near and far, through states across the country today.

Ray enjoyed spending time on the outside on the golf course, traveling, and visiting his family - his stories of the past were always part thrill and bewonderment, matched with a deep belly laugh that could be heard from across the room. A passionate man about life, love, and family, he was the center of the family unit by being a provider and mentor to his children but his favorite role and the ultimate promotion was to be known as "Grandpa".

For the last eight decades, a holiday never went by without him, from Easter brunches, graduations, weddings, and the annual family Christmas Eve - Raymond and wife Helen never missed an occasion to gather the family together. No matter what the season or reason to get together - two things were always certain, dessert and cards.

Our beloved and greatest Santa, Raymond "Dad"/ "Grandpa" Daly Sr. provided magic that brings joy, love and togetherness, along with a lifetime of memories for so many. He is meaning of the spirit of Christmas and so much more. Without him, we would be a fraction of what we are today, he is deeply missed by all - but his legacy will live on.

Condolence & Memory Journal

We were classmates at St Mary's school in Stoughton. We could walk to school.
As kids I enjoyed his demeanor and friendliness. Our mothers were known to each other. Saw him a few times after that in Stoughton. US Navy time: Thanks for your service. RIP Harley

Mr. Daly,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USN during the Cold War. Millions of Americans slept safe at night because you and your fellow Servicemen stood ready to defend our Country. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I will never forget the great times with Mr Daly as we met early in the morning and headed to Marthas Vineyard to play golf at Farm Neck golf club. Early on Ray would drive but as the years went on he would say "Lou, your driving today"
we had some great conversations to and from that I will forever miss. Once we arrived after a traditional breakfast at the Black Dog, Ray would put his game-face on. After all he was our Captain and leader of our team. He was such a competitor and hated when he had a bad hole. But he didn't have many over the years as we won many times. Ray loved to come in the clubhouse after what he called a "sweet victory" and rub it in to the other teams and proudly collect our side bet money better known as sideskies. He loved that moment so much.

Both Brenda and I send our heart felt condolences to the entire Daly family.
