He served in the U.S. Army and received an honorable discharge.

Early on in his life, he worked in the mills in Biddeford. He went on to become a police officer and worked the remainder of his career as a truck driver.

He was a loving father and husband, with a great sense of humor and a lifelong commitment to taking care of his family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Annette Langevin; their children: Marcel Langevin and his wife Cathy, of Sanford; Norman Langevin and his wife Donna, of Biddeford; Phillip Langevin, of Lyman; Michelle Gardner and her husband Tobin, of Brewer; Charles Langevin, of Shapleigh; Gerald Langevin and his wife Nancy, of Arundel; Guy Langevin and his wife Holly Deery, of Scarborough; Jeffrey Langevin, of New Hampton, N.H.; and Frederick Fredette and his wife Brenda, of South Carolina; his adoring grandchildren, Christopher Harris, Maegan Langevin, Matthew Langevin, Nicole Linnie, Hallee Langevin, Jake Langevin, Emma Langevin, Cole and Connor Smith, Jarod Sands, Shantelle MacDonald, Jamie Nemet, and William and Lance Hanna; and two great-grandchildren, Hunter and Audrey Linnie. He also is survived by three sisters, Jeannette Rousseau, Aline Verville and Simone Estrella.

Ray's family thanks his physicians of 30-plus years, Richard Lemay, M.D., and Paul Meadows, M.D. We wish them well in their retirements. We would like to thank the V.A. and Hospice Services of Southern Maine for the wonderful services that allowed him to stay in the home he loved, and the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough for their wonderful care and support.
