Obituary of Roy Eastwood


With heavy hearts we announce the death of our dear brother, uncle, and friend, Roy Patrick Eastwood, peacefully in his sleep, at GBHS Wiarton on Friday, November 18, 2022, at the age of 75.


Lovingly remembered by Susan Plant (Richard) of Selwyn, Cathie Yakabuski (Frank) of Owen Sound, and Philip Eastwood (Diane) of Owen Sound. Cherished Uncle of Brady Dillabough of Kingston, Taylor Dillabough of Holland Centre, Meredith Buckley (Chris) of Owen Sound, Coulter Eastwood (Terri-Lynn) of Kitchener, and Devon Yakabuski of Simcoe. Roy was a loving Great Uncle to Morgan, Dylan, William, and Adalynn, and Great Great Uncle to Dallas. Also remembered by dear friends Pat and Brianna Cavan. Predeceased by parents Elizabeth (Hacking) and Pat Eastwood of Wiarton.


Born in Toronto in 1947, Roy would travel to the Bruce Peninsula with his family, and it would eventually become his home. Many people of Wiarton knew him or at least his name, he was always lending a helping hand, from painting your house to entertaining the kids, or from his visits to LTC with his beloved Magic. A favourite pastime, spending a few days at the cottage by Old Women's River, visiting with family, fishing, cribbage after a beautiful sunset, and endless scratchers.


We wish to extend our heartful thank you to Dr. Diodati, Lauren, Peter, and all the staff at GBHS Wiarton, for your loving care of our Roy, as well as to all the caring people of Wiarton who were always looking out for him.


'Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.'
