Obituary

It is with broken hearts the family of the late John Dennis (Dick) Byrd announce he passed peacefully away at his home in Grand Falls-Windsor on September 6th, 2020, at the age of 64.

Known as “Dick” to his friends, John lived most of his life in Grand Falls-Windsor except for a brief stint in Alberta. All his working life was spent operating heavy equipment or tractor trailers and he took great pride in the quality of his work. When he wasn’t working, he loved nothing more than spending time at his cabin at Diversion Lake.

John is predeceased by his parents Jack and Zita Byrd, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He leaves to mourn Margaret (sister), Sean (brother) and Lynda Andrews as well as a large circle of very close friends and relatives.

The family would like to express special thanks to the Nurses (John called them The Angels of Chemo) and Doctors at the Bliss Murphy Centre in Grand Falls-Windsor and St. John’s for the unbelievable care and support he received during the past couple of years.

As per John’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Flowers are welcome or donations in his memory may be made to the Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre at the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre, Grand Falls-Windsor.

Visitation and funeral service will be held with restrictions due to COVID-19.

To Sean , Marg, and Lynda.. No words will ever do justice to the impact Dick had on the lives of so many friends.. Every time a good moment from my past comes up Dick is in it.. After getting sick of being ripped off buying salt meat at Sobey's downtown myself and Dick decided the boys at Angus's camp deserved better.. The store worker was not pleased to see several tubs of salt meat opened and us picking out the best of all of them.. God love you my friend.. I will see you soon enough..

Marg & Family,
Please accept our condolences over Dicks passing.

It has been over 40 years since I have seen Dick, but I can honestly say I, and my wife Kathy, hold many fond memories of Dick. Myself, I recall many an evening with Dick roaming around Grand Falls in our teenage years, or climbing the roads up by Red Cliff to watch the sun rise and have a refreshment. Later years in St. John's, Dick would stop in and visit us with the fixings for a meal which he cooked, as he was hauling fish off the island and fresh vegetables back.

Many a good time was had...He was a great guy and will be missed....
