Edwin Roy Beduz
October 27, 1930 – October 23, 2015
It is with deep sadness and sorrow that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our father Roy Beduz.
Roy, born and raised in Kimberley, BC, began his career with Cominco and met his wife Joan at the Phosphate Mine, Cominco America, MT. Married on October 6th, 1956, they arrived in Yellowknife, NT in the dead of winter that year to start their lives together and eventually raise their two children, Judi and Brian, while Roy worked at Con Mine. Roy completed his Cominco career at Polaris Mine, Little Cornwallis Island, NU. His next career took Roy and Joan to the Queen Charlotte Islands, BC where Roy worked in the capacity of Maintenance Superintendent for the School District until his retirement. Roy and Joan spent their remaining years in Marysville, BC.
Roy is predeceased by Joan, his wife of 59 years. He leaves behind his son Brian and his wife Lorraine, his daughter Judi (Cozzetto) and her husband Terry, his brother Louis and sister-in-law Meta, brother-in-law John Mollenberg, nieces and nephews, and his little canine companion Pepper.
The interment will take place at the Kimberley Cemetery later this year.
Forever loved and greatly missed.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
