Boyd, Kenneth James
Peacefully at Bethell Hospice, Inglewood on Monday, June 14, 2021 at the age of 91. Beloved husband of Irene Keeble (2020). Dear father of Chris and his wife Diane, Robert and Tim and his wife Kara. Cherished grandfather of Ken (Liz), Jim (Meaghan), Stephen (2013), Kevin (Sydney), Alanna and Ava. Great-grandfather of Jaxon. Ken will also be greatly missed by his other relatives and many friends.
Ken lived a full life, emigrating from England in 1954 and spending most of his career as an elevator mechanic with Local 50 (International Union of Elevator Constructors). Ken was a family man who loved spending time in his garden at the “farm” in Marsville, until moving to Watermark, where he enjoyed great friendships and garage beers with his Kingfisher Drive pals.
Dad’s last few years were spent at Bramalea Retirement Residence in Brampton enjoying a new group of friends.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Bramalea Retirement Residence and Bethell Hospice for their wonderful care of our father in his final years and days.
Ken will be cremated as per his wishes and will be laid to rest at a later date with his dear wife of almost 65 years, Renee, in the Orangeville Greenwood Cemetery on Veteran’s Way, Orangeville.
Private family arrangements entrusted to Dods & McNair Funeral Home, Chapel & Reception Centre, Orangeville. Memorial donations to Bethell Hospice, Inglewood, Ontario would be appreciated by the family. A tree will be planted in memory of Ken in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.dodsandmcnair.com
