Boyd, Allan James, age 76, of Lakevale, Antigonish County, passed away on January 6, 2020, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.

Born in Antigonish, he was a son of the late Myles and Marguerite Boyd. 

Allan was a wonderful and endearing husband, a loving father and grandfather, and the best stepfather someone could hope for.  He was very close to his siblings and loved them dearly. He worked for over 30 years at the Dr. John Hugh Gillis Regional High School as head custodian.  Allan was very active in his church and his community, always there to lend a helping hand, and he was also a strong supporter of the Progressive Conservative Party.  He loved fishing and boating on the Hunky Dorey and working in the woods along side his brother, Carroll.  Allan was also a proud member of AA for 18 years.

He is survived by his wife, Vonnie (Kell); son, James, Calgary; daughter, Allana (Alec), Cochrane, AB; stepson, Garry; grandchildren, Marguerite and Jack; brother, Carroll (late Margaret Ann), Lakevale; sister, Marian (Bill) Crawford, Lakevale; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and in-laws.

Predeceased by his brother, Donnie; sister, Ann Marie, in infancy; and grandson Sebastian, in infancy.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no public visitation and a private family funeral will be held in St. Columba Church in Lakevale, with burial in the parish cemetery.  A video of the funeral will be made available on the funeral home’s website Monday afternoon.
