Boyd, Wayne Clyde

September 29, 1928 – November 24, 2022
at the age of 94 years:     

Wayne was born in Neutral Hills, AB on September 29, 1928 to Clyde and Audrey Boyd.  He passed away November 24, 2022 at the age of 94 years.  The youngest of 4, he grew up on the family farm.

He met and married Patricia Doherty and in 1958 they moved to Calgary where Wayne took a mechanics course. In the mid 1960’s he started City Wide Towing with 2 trucks. He sold the business in 1979 with 31 trucks and to this date City Wide is still a thriving business in Calgary.  At this time, Pat and Wayne moved to Mara Lake, BC where they bought Mara Resort and Marina. They stayed there until 1989 when they moved to Eagle Bay where Wayne started his handyman business. In 1997 they moved to Salmon Arm where Wayne finally retired. Wayne loved to hunt and fish and was an avid musician and played all string instruments. He also enjoyed his rum and coke on the deck after supper.

Wayne is survived by his wife Pat, his 4 children: Patrick(Dawn) Boyd of Saskatchewan, Robin(Laurie) Boyd of Calgary, Stacy(Jim) Green of Salmon Arm and Kurt Boyd of Salmon Arm and by 2 grandchildren:  Brandon(Alexandra), and Madelyn.

  1. Our heartfelt condolences to Pat , Stacy & Kurt on the death of your Dad, Your husband, Wayne.
    Our family looked up the Boyd’s in July 1979 at Mara Resorts as we were passing through on a camping holiday in BC.
    Our parents Jim & Donna Tainsh grew up around Wayne & Pat and heard they were running a resort so after talking to Stacy ‘s good friend at the travel booth we ventured out for a peek and a visit.
    Since then, many good times have been spent with the Boyd’s at their beautiful resort .
    We knew of Stacy and Kurt and got to know them very well too, as they were our ages.
    A hard working, productive, rule abiding family who were friends to all their resort family members.
    Here’s to the beautiful memories!
    Thanks for sharing your Dad & your husband with our family❤️
    Nonavee, Brent

  2. Dear Pat:
    So sorry to read of the passing of “Dear”. He will be forever remembered by all who knew him. Whenever I hang tinsel I think of the beautiful trees and perfect tinsel that always graced your house. May your memories bring solace to you and your family.

  3. Dear Pat and family,
    After 64 years of marriage you will be missing your life’s partner; the pair of you took on many ventures and adventures together. I hope the love of your family will support during this time of grief. Blessings to all of you. Wayne was a unique guy.
