It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Roy on Friday, November 26, 2021. John Leroy “Roy” Mallard was loved by many for his kindness and sense of humour. Roy was predeceased by his wife Helen “Shirley” Mallard and parents Clarice and Stanley Mallard, his brother Martin and sister Grace.

Roy is survived by his son Allan (Tracy) and grandchildren Kenzie, Ashton, Ashley, and Michael, his daughter Dawn (Michael) and grandchildren Leah and Jenna, and brother Cliff (Helen). Roy loved the outdoors, coaching basketball, golfing, and cheering for the Roughriders. Roy was a dedicated Sasktel employee for almost 37 years. After retirement, they moved to BC before Roy settled in Sidney.

Roy was an amazing husband, dad, grandfather, great grandfather and a friend to many. He could often be heard saying “Wherever you go, there you are”. The family would like to thank the staff at Saanich Peninsula Hospital Extended Care 2 for their exceptional care and kindness. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Extended Care https://sphf.ca/support-the-saanich-peninsula-hospital/ or the Alzheimer’s Society https://alzheimer.ca/bc/en.   A private family gathering will be held at a later date.

Condolences may be offered to the family below.

    So sorry to hear of Roys passing.
    The “Duck” spent a great deal of time with our family up in Buffalo Narrows.
    I remember he joined us for a winter camping trip going to Uranium City, and the summer before I finished high school he joined us for a canoe trip from the Cowan dam to Buffalo Narrows.
    Many happy memories.
    Condolences to the family.

    It was wonderful to see Mr Mallard at our 50 year reunion of our graduation. We were not a large school and our gym was only 3 years old when he coached the girls team to the provincial championship. I couldn’t estimate the hours he dedicated to that effort. May you be comforted in the memories of his goodness.

  • Dorothy Hlady

    I knew Roy as a dedicated, talented coach who led our high school team to a provincial championship. He was always fun loving and professional. He will be missed but never forgotten. Sincere sympathy to his family. May your wonderful memories help to ease your loss.

    Allan, Dawn and families,

    Sending sincere condolences on the passing of your dad. Roy along with your mom, were two of my favourite people from North Battleford. There was always laughter surrounding them. You will all miss him dearly but have many fond memories to cherish and hold close to your hearts. Hugs, Jean Omelchenko

  • Ned & Barbara Nedzelski

    He was family to us. He will always be in our hearts.

  • Kathy MacNeil

    Sending prayers and sympathy to you Dawn and your family. Reading about your Dad, it’s not hard to see where your sunny personality and sense of humour came from. May his memory be a blessing to you.
