Jordan Boyd

May 23, 1997August 12, 2013

It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of our much-loved son, Jordan James Louis Boyd, on August 12, 2013. Jordan passed doing what he loved best, playing hockey. He was so excited to be drafted by the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the QMJHL and we were so proud of him. Jordan had a smile that would light up a room. He was kindhearted, and a true teammate, always considerate of others. He made many, many friends during his short time with us. Jordan was born in Halifax on May 23, 1997. He had just completed grade 10 at the Rothesay Netherwood School in Rothesay, New Brunswick. Jordan is survived by his parents, Stephen and Deborah Boyd, his brother, Gregory, sisters Kelsey and Jillian, grandparents, Louis and Dorothy Boyd and James and Marjory Kirby, his uncles Mike (Lisa), Chris, David (Julianna), Tim (Sarah), Peter (Joanne), Ian (Kelly), Wayne (Sandy), and 23 cousins. Visitation will be held from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm on Friday, August 16 at J.A. Snow Funeral Home, 339 Lacewood Drive Halifax. The funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, August 17 in St Agnes Parish, 6903 Mumford Rd Halifax, NS. A private family burial will follow the funeral. Funeral arrangements are being handled by J.A. Snow Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the B&DMHA Players Assistance Fund or the Rothesay Netherwood School for an endowment to be established in Jordan’s name. The family of Jordan James Louis Boyd wishes to thank the community of Bathurst, the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Bedford Minor Hockey Association, the Rothesay Netherwood School, and all of the friends and family who have supported us in our time of grieving.
