Ronald Thomas Boyd

October 19, 1930 ~ April 29, 2018 (age 87)





Passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at Cornwall Hospice, Ronald Thomas Boyd of Cornwall, formerly of Verdun, QC.  Ron is survived by his loving wife, Dorothy of sixty-five years.  Loving father of Steven and Susan and father figure to Angus McDonald and Steven Wright.  Cherished grandfather of three grandchildren and six great grandchildren. 


Ron started his career in the CNR, but he immediately started taking night courses because he knew he wanted to be a teacher.  When he graduated he moved to Quebec City where he began his teaching career.  Ron retired from Leeds and Grenville Board of Education as a principal.  Travel and skiing were a big part of his life.  Ron skied the alps and visited most corners of the world.  He was a very active volunteer in numerous organizations.  In the last few years he was often found at his Community Garden with his buddies.  He touched countless lives as a friend and teacher.  The world is a little less colourful without him.
