Sydney Forks, NS; Dalhousie University, 1964; otolaryngology. Died Nov. 3, 2017, aged 78. Survived by his wife Norma, 4 children and 7 grandchildren. “After practising family medicine in Neil’s Harbour and on the Northside [of Cape Breton Island], he completed his surgical specialty in otolaryngology at McGill University. Dr. Boyd continued to serve Cape Breton within this specialty for over 30 years.” A parent wrote: “My daughter was his patient for many years. I remember well an appointment she had when she was about 4 and presented Dr. Boyd with a picture she had drawn of him. He chuckled and said, ‘Do you see what she has done? She has kindly given me a full head of hair!’ That picture hung in his office for several years.”
