Raymond E. Banderet was born November 12, 1921 to Louis and Louise (Cochet) Banderet on the family farm south of Straubville, ND. He departed this life Monday, April 29, 2013 at Oakes Good Samaritan Center in Oakes, ND, at the age of 91 years.

Ray attended rural grade schools and graduated from high school in Havana, ND in 1939. He farmed and raised livestock with his father and brother, Emil for many years. Later in life, he and Emil partnered with his nephews, Lowell and Bob.

Although a quiet man, he was very active in the community and a loyal supporter of community activities. He was a member of the Nazareth Lutheran Church where he served on the church council, the Masonic Temple, and the Cogswell Gun Club where he shot trap for many years. He also bowled in several leagues and was inducted into the Oakes Men’s Bowling Association Hall of Fame. Ray served on civic boards including Southwest Township Board and the Cogswell Rural Fire District.

Ray enjoyed farming and ranching and actively helped out well into his 80’s. He was an avid hunter and fisherman in his younger years and always had time for a game of Pinochle with his brothers. He was a gentle soul and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Ray is survived by a brother, Louie (Ruth) Banderet of Freeport, IL; two sisters-in-law: Mable Banderet of Cogswell, ND and Betty Banderet of Freeport, IL; eight nephews and nieces, and their families.
