Pre-deceased by parents Mae (Cordiner) and Bill Newton, sister Lee and brother Brent. Lovingly missed by wife Tammy Shimoji, son Curtis (Sherry) and grandson Carson, brother Blaine (Leslie), nieces Alyssa, Jessica and Emma - who adored their Uncle Newt - and his own beloved aunt and uncle, Margaret and Barry Brookes. Boyd will be deeply missed by so many close friends - too many to name, but you know who you are and how much he loved you.

Boyd was a woodcrafter, an entrepreneur, a biker, a people magnet, a storyteller, a bullshitter, a music lover, a country gentleman and a truth teller. He was gruff-voiced, rough-bearded, big-hearted and twinkly-eyed. He was a little boy in long pants.

The world will be quieter - possibly more well-ordered, but much less fun.

Thanks to the nurses, doctors and staff of Bethesda Regional Health Centre in Steinbach, Manitoba and all the doctors and staff of Cancer Care Manitoba.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the maintenance of Victoria Church Cemetery in memory of Boyd Newton:
Victoria Church Cemetery
C/O John Shipley
Box 117
Balmoral, MB
R0C 0H0

Cremation has taken place. Arrangements regarding a service will be communicated in the near future.

My condolences to all of Boyd’s family & friends left to mourn his passing but more importantly to remember his life.
I knew Boyd in high school (45 yrs ago) and I can still hear his laugh. R.I.P Boyd

Boyd made me giggle all the time ! Handsome , strong , smart guy with a big heart , always ready with a one liner, creative, goofy and always had a smile for you. The best about Boyd is his wife Tammy, and the joy ,love ,laughter and crazy shenanigans and strength they shared together and with their community , friends and family. My condolences to Boyd's family and friends for such a great loss of such a great man.

I've know Boyd for about 40 years. First met him when i sold his Newton and Stewart beer nuts at the old arena in the late 70.s and early 80's. What a great guy and was always a pleasure to be with. My condolences to the Newton family.
