Obituary of Roy Dewar

With sadness we announce the passing of Roy Dewar on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at the age of 68. Loving husband and best friend of his dear wife Barbara. Beloved father of Jason (Maria) and Jordan (Robin). Grampa of Ethan, Isabella, Brooklyn, McKenzie and Peyton. Precious son of the late Crawford Dewar and Bertha Ella Rae (nee Day). Cherished brother of his mentor the late Crawford Dewar (late Pat), Gayanne Dewar and Frankie Cox (Ralph). Loving son-in-law of the late Jakob Gass and Maria Gass.  Brother-in-law of Irene Joly (Pierre), Jenny Thomas (Mark), John Gass (Leona) and Pauline Petrini (David). Roy was a loved uncle, cousin and dear friend to many.

Roy worked for many years at the Algoma District School Board and later the City of Sault Ste. Marie to try and ensure the safety of others. Although his death was sudden, his unwavering faith in God’s promise of a resurrection to a paradise earth soon to come was evident in the way he lived his life. (Revelation 21:3, 4)
