Norman John Boyd

April 10, 1942 to August 31, 2023

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Norm Boyd on August 31, 2023 at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 81.

Norm will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 60 years Donna (nee Frost); daughter Leslie (Todd) Billington, son Jeffery (Sherri); grandchildren Ryan and Kyle Billington, Paige, Ashley and Jace Boyd and Brooklyn Keegan.

Left to cherish his memory are his bothers Basil and Terry (Carol) Boyd; sisters-in-law Elaine Boyd and Sandra Frost; brother-in-law David Carriere, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Norm was predeceased by his parents Norman and Blanche Boyd, mother and father-in-law Jack and Bette Karol, his sisters Evelyn (late Murray) Stalker, Margie (late Doug) Cassidy, Meriam Carriere, brother Bruce and brothers-in-law Kenneth and David Frost.

Norm was born and raised in Selkirk, MB where he attended school and played various sports. Norm started his apprenticeship at the Selkirk Enterprise until he moved to Winnipeg in 1965 to continue his career at Stovels (Lawson Graphics MB Ltd). He then moved to Typoplate Ltd until he started his own company Ad Type Graphics.  When it came closer to his retirement Norm moved and finished his career at Transcontinental Graphics Ltd. Along the way Norm made many lifelong lasting friendships.

Norm loved his sports, whether it was him playing or watching hockey, curling or golf. His love of sports continued once his children started to play, by either coaching or watching them play hockey, ringette or baseball. He was always there to cheer them on and show his support.

His greatest pleasure came later on in life when he was able to watch his grandchildren carry on with the love of sports as well. He was never too busy to come out and cheer them on.

Norm loved his family and spending time with them. There always seemed to be a Boyd gathering for any occasion where he was able to connect with them all.

Norm was the neighborhood watch and seemed to know everyone in the area; he will truly be missed by his neighbors. He always looked forward to Halloween when he was able to see all of the neighbor’s kids come to the door for Grandpa Norm’s candy.

The family would like to thank the staff at Cancer Care Manitoba and St Boniface Palliative Care for their kindness and care for Norm/dad the past 2.5 years.

As per Norm’s wishes cremation has taken place and there will be a private family interment. A celebration of Norm’s life will take place on Saturday, September 30, 2023 at St. Clements Parish Hall, 5 St. Clements Dr., Selkirk, MB from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
