He was a good and decent man. He loved Christ , and his family. He will be greatly missed!
So many good memories of volunteering with him at the Ft. Roots Golf Course. Debby and I send our love to the family.
Mr. Boyd was our Thursday Morning Bible Breakfast celebrity for many years. Just watched the video. He would have been more a celebrity if we had known he married a Hollywood Beauty. He led as many as 130 men in Victory in Jesus every Thursday morning. Mr Boyd not singing it but living it today, well maybe both. Prayers for family.
I am so saddened to hear of Boydâ€™s passing. Boyd and I are cousins and grew up together, often exploring the countryside on bicycles as young boys did. I will never forget Boyd taking me across the Arkansas River railroad bridge on a bicycle as a train was passing beside us. We lived full lives in spite of our youthful selves. Blessings to Boydâ€™s family.Harry N. Harpole
