Yes, Doug, is my father and he and my mother still reside in the Crowsnest Pass.
Is your father Jim? from Marysville?
This genealogy is certainly interesting and there seem to be many different families of Raffan's.
My grandfather, Pete, was a baker in Three Hills for many years and operated the old Red and White store.He passed away before I was born, so unfortunately, I never knew him.My dad often talks about how exciting it was when Uncle Waddy (Walter) came to visit from the East.It would be interesting to find out where and what became of the other brothers and sisters.
I look forward to any new info you may come across!
