It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ron Boyd on September 10, 2022, at 68 years of age.
Ron is survived by his loving children Nikolas (Jenna) Boyd of Fort McMurray, Alberta and Kaitlin (Mark) Boyd of Calgary, Alberta. He will also be dearly missed by his new baby granddaughter, Maia.
Born August 4, 1954, in Kamloops, BC, Ron was an entrepreneur at heart. While many will know him as an independent courier conducting business in Kamloops and area, he had a varied career path which began with gumball machine sales at just 14 years old and continued on to include warehouse management, accounting, and real estate. Dad was an extremely hard worker who diligently managed his businesses while treating all he met with kindness and respect. He dedicated himself to anything he took on. We were always so proud to see him succeed in his ventures, including graduating top of class in his Accounting Diploma Program at Thompson Rivers University.
Along with his business acumen, Ron was a loving father who always encouraged us to aim high in life. He had many hobbies and interests that he happily passed down to his children, including his love of gardening, reading, music, crossword puzzles, and comedy. He had a quick wit, loved a good debate or intellectual discussion, and always looked for ways to enrich his kids' lives. Dad's positive influence, courage, and quiet confidence shaped who we are today, and for that, we are eternally grateful. Please reach out to those you love and tell them how much they mean to you.
With deepest condolences,Nikolas and Kaitlin. We've never met... sadly.We want you both to know you have family in Kamloops who would of loved to have know you both ,and loved you. We are so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was our Brother. - Dian Reed(Boyd) and Ray Boyd and families
I never knew Ron but seeing what a shining light his daughter Kaitlin is makes me understand how great a man he was.
