We Remember


April 29, 1941 — December 9, 2022

On December 9, 2022 at 81 years of age, the Reverend Roy Foord went to be with Jesus in glory. He went peacefully, and surrounded by his wife, his daughter, and Christmas music.

He leaves behind Diane Foord and their children Jennifer McInnes (Darryl) and Andrew Foord; as well as his grandchildren Sebastian Hoey and Elizabeth McInnes. He will also be missed by his brother Maurice Foord; as well as by Brett Foord (Kerry) and Yvonne Duclos (Kent); and by his many friends.

Born in London, England, Roy came to Canada when he was only 6 years old; he came with his mother and brother. At 22 years of age, he married his beloved Diane, with whom he celebrated their 59th anniversary just days before his passing. Together they had a family and Roy shared his joy of music with his children. Roy was able to play any instrument… though he preferred the Tuba! He loved motorcycles and had a passion for them his entire life. His humour and wit was exhibited by making quick puns in everyday situations.

Roy gave up teaching when he was called to ministry.

Until we are all together again in eternity, Roy will be with us always, in our hearts.

A Memorial Service to honour Rev. Roy Foord will be held at a later date.
