Raymond Michael Guck, age 85, went home to be with his Lord on May 26, 2022. He was born September 27, 1936 in Perham to George and Clara (Ledermann) Guck. Ray attended St. Joseph’s country school and graduated from Perham High School in 1954. On September 5, 1966, Ray was united in marriage to Rose Sazama.
Ray farmed the family farm and later worked for the lumber yard in Perham until his retirement. Being a people-person, Ray worked part-time for Ace Hardware but took great pride with being a Perham International Turtle Race official for many of his retirement years.
Ray was a member of the Knights of Columbus and an active member of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He enjoyed watching the Minnesota Twins and Vikings, fishing, traveling across the country with Rose, and most importantly spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Ray is survived by his sons Tony Guck (Rikki) of Fargo, ND, Charlie (Jodi) Guck of Perham, Ed Guck (Gretchen) of Ft. Myers, FL, Greg Guck of Perham; his daughter Linda (Dave) Meyer of West Fargo, ND; grandchildren Kayla (Nathen) Christensen, Brandon Guck, Jack Petru, Connor Guck, and Tanner Guck; great-grandchildren Rowen and Asher; and siblings Odilia Riestenberg, Lambert Guck, and Richard Guck.
