It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Lorne Boyd, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Lorne passed away peacefully at Parisien Manor in Cornwall, ON in his 103rd year. He will be sadly missed by his sons, Malcolm (Judy) of Edmonton, AB and David of Sooke, BC, his 6 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren, as well as his brother Frank (Diane). He is predeceased by his wife of 71 years, Gladys (nee McMeekin), his parents, Norman and Milda Boyd, his son, Larry, his daughter, Linda (the late Wayne Suave), his sisters, Hazel (the late Adam Walker) and Lila (the late Walter Murdoch).

As a reservist in WWII Lorne was honoured to lay a wreath at the Hawkesbury Cenotaph on Nov. 11, 2018, (the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and his 100th birthday). Throughout the years he enjoyed travelling to exotic places, trips to see his sons and families in Alberta and British Columbia, and numerous outings along the St. Lawrence in the cabin cruiser with Gladys.
