Obituary for Gerald Melvin "GERRY" Boyes

BOYES, Gerald Melvin raised in Cheltenham, Ontario passed away peacefully on January 29, 2021 in his 83rd year. Beloved husband of Elaine Boyes (nee Nixon), loving father of Rod (Julie), Neil and the late Debbie (Jacquelyn) and Jeannie and the late Howard (Joe). Survived by his brother Lorry (Dorothy). Predeceased by his parents, Mel and Mae Boyes. Cherished Grandfather of Liam (Victoria), Rob (Erika), James (Lynzee), Matt (Taylor), Carlee (Cody), Jordan (Jake) and Kate (Brad) and dear Great-Grandfather of Cameron, Caleb, Millie and Callie. Gerry will always be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his extended family and many friends. Gerry – fondly known by many as Uncle Gerry - touched the lives of those who grew up in Cheltenham and those he worked with at the Brampton Fire Department. After selling the family cottage on Silver Lake, Magnetawan, Ontario, Gerry and Elaine ventured to Nine Mile Marina in Torrance, Ontario and after making their mark, they truly retired years later when they moved into the Belwood/Fergus area. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
