Obituary of Kenneth Ralph Boyd
We are extremely sad to announce the passing of Kenny Boyd at his daughter’s home in Poplar Grove on Thursday, March 16, 2023 at the age 74. Kenny was a beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle and true friend to many. Born November 30, 1948, he was a son of the late John and Florence (MacDonald) Boyd.
Kenny grew up in and was a longtime resident of Falmouth. As a young man, he ventured out west and was a member of the Armed Forces for several years, participating in the 1970 Montreal “October Crisis”. Kenny also excelled as a hockey player at this time. Throughout his life he was a hard worker in whatever he pursued. In addition to being a woodsman for many years, he also worked on ranches, orchards and as a pipeline labourer.
Kenny was well known to his friends as "KB". He was very generous, softhearted and always had a kind word or a smile for whoever needed it. His passions in life included fishing, vegetable gardening, cooking, tapping trees for maple syrup, reading, nature, animals and having a cold beer with friends.
He is survived by children, Shelly, Jennifer, Josh and Jaclyn; grandchildren, Michael, Jared, Ronan and Addilyn; sister, Mariane; brothers, Johnny and Barry; several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Besides his parents, Kenny was preceded in death by his brother, Wayne.
Arrangements for cremation have been entrusted to DeMont Family Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 419 Albert St., Windsor (902-798-8317). A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Kenny may be made to Hope for Wildlife, 5909 Highway 207, Seaforth, NS B0J 2L0.
