It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Roy William Grinder of Clinton, BC on October 28, 2015 at the age of 71 years.
Roy will be lovingly remembered by his sons Roy and Dennis; step-daughter Linda Sue; brother Kenny; sister Bernice; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.
Roy grew up working on the family’s ranch in Big Bar and worked on many other cattle ranches throughout BC. He spent many years traveling the rodeo trail, logging and as a big game guide. Roy spent much of his time on horseback, in the mountains and down at the Fraser River fishing and panning for gold. He was always willing to lend a hand, share his knowledge or play a game of cards. He will always be remembered for his stories, sense of humour and his smile.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 1:00 pm at the Clinton Rodeo Grounds.
Donations can be made to the Roy Grinder Memorial Fund for rodeo sponsorships.
