Our dad was so proud of his children and his many grand and great-grand children. He holds a special place in each one of our hearts and always will. He loved to tease and would hide and scare anyone who would come to their home. You never knew where he was going to be. Then he would just stand and laugh that amazing laugh that we are all going to miss so much.
He touched the lives of so many. He had such a huge, generous, giving heart. He loved to help others and was so willing and did it so selflessly.
Our dad loved to tell stories, any story but most of all he loved to tell the stories of his life, growing up and how he loved to spend each summer on the mountain herding sheep with his dad and uncles. His uncle Grant has always held a special place in his heart. He learned so many things at such a young age which made him the strong, amazing man we all love.
Our dad not only taught his children but he also taught his grandchildren many life long lessons. He taught us to not only work hard but to take pride in our work or anything we did. He was so proud of his accomplishments in life and loved taking care of his yard and making it beautiful. Our dad and grandpa will dearly be missed! We find comfort in knowing he is reunited with our mom and sister again!
Boyd is survived by two sisters, Pearl and Lora, five children, Rydell (Jeanie) Johnson-Spanish Fork, Jared (Jennifer) Johnson-Las Vegas, Cindy (Terry) Gleason-Coalville, Stephanie (Troy) Blain-Spring City, Brandon (Jenny) Johnson-Spring City, 21 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.
Boyd is preceded in death by his wife Shauna, daughter Wendy, his parents Loftin and Nina K, brothers Wayne and Dean, sister Carol, his grandparents and many many aunts and uncles and loved ones.
