RAYCROFT, Brian Arthur -
It is with sad and heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Brian Arthur Raycroft of Burlington Ontario on April 14, 2019. Peacefully in his sleep he joined his late wife Arlene Raycroft along with several other angels dear to him.
Brian leaves behind his daughter Denise Raycroft, son Doug Raycroft (and daughter in law Debbie Moraitis). Cherished grandfather of Danielle Gomes (Andrew), and Hailey Raycroft (Jevaughn) and great grandfather to Teliah Hutchison. Late Father in law to Debbie Raycroft and loving brother to Marlene Bell. Brian was an uncle to many nieces, nephews, godchildren and will be missed by many close friends.
Brian will be remembered by all as a selfless man with many interests; a Jazz enthusiast, a talented drummer, golfer, camper and traveller.
His internment will be Wednesday April 24 at 1130am at Burlington Memorial Gardens Cemetery off Guelph line and Dundas. Small lunch gathering with family to follow.
Donations can be made in his honour to Burlington Community Living of Burlington.

Land of Make Believe
I will ever forget first time I heard Land of Make Believe by Chuck Mangione performed with Esther Satterfield and the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra on Uncle Brian’s turntable and hi-fo stereo and I will always remember him with such gratitude for giving me a lifetime of great music and poolside BBQs and family reunions and love. 💜 RIP Uncle Brian in the Land of Make Believe (and please ask Auntie Arlene to send me her potato salad recipe)

When you're feeling down and out
Wondering what this world's about
I know a place that has the answer.
It's a place where no one dies.
It's a land where no one cries.
And good vibrations always
Greet you.

When you start a brand new day
Let your heart show you the way
And make a dream or two
Come true.
How I love when my thoughts run
To the land of make believe
Where everything is fun
