Roy Farquhar of Teeswater and formerly of Inverhuron, died at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre, Kincardine, June 6, 2020, in his 80th year. Beloved husband of Barbara for 58 years. Deeply loved by his children, Mark of Kincardine, and Lynn (Deb) of Barrie. Proud grandfather of Madison, Jacob and the late Matthew, Jeremy and Jason. Dear brother of Edith Nelson. Predeceased by brothers, Howard, Harold, George, Doug, John, Clarence and Willard; and sisters, Donalda and Lillian. He will be missed by many nieces and nephews and wonderful friends. Roy was born in Cochrane but raised in Hunta. He made several moves in his career with Ontario Hydro but called Bruce County his home. He was one of the kindest people you would meet – and always ready to help family and friends. He loved to pass the time with his grandchildren, as well as woodworking, and spending time with Barb going to music events all summer. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at a later date, as well as interment at Tiverton Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of your choice; arrangements entrusted to Grey Bruce Cremation and Burial Services, 519-371-8507.
