Joseph Edwin Boyd passed peacefully at Maplewood Retirement Community on July 23rd 2021 in his 98th year of love and service.
Beloved husband of the late Margaret Boyd and loving dad to Bonnie (John Benesh) and Bourk (Grete). Proud Papa of Jennifer McLean (Kevin), Kathryn Tyler (Jose Barahona), Alanna, Cara, Nicole, and Kerstin Boyd and great-grandsons, Joshua and Kaden McLean, and Nixon Barahona. Devoted brother of Edrie Joule (late Harry) and late Max (late Sunny). Adored uncle and great uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Ed was appreciated for his service to the Winchester United Church, and the broader Winchester community. He cherished his family, friends, honesty, hard work and all good things life, and God offered him – notably, boating, sunshine, milk shakes, and butter tarts. The love and laughter he inspired will live with all who came across his welcoming spirit, listening ear, gentle understanding, and imparted wisdom. Until the end, Ed’s kindness and generosity graced all those who crossed his path.
By Ed’s request, an intimate family service will be held in celebration of his life at a later date. Donations in memory of Ed may be made to the Winchester United Church or Winchester District Memorial Hospital. Arrangements entrusted to the Byers Funeral Home, South Mountain, (613-989-3836).
