A good friend for many years. I will miss his stories and his thoughts on life.

I truly enjoyed being Boyd's friend! He was a wealth of knowledge not only for automotive matters, but for life in total. I can't count how many hours I spent sitting in his "office" listening and learning. He knew more about my '56 Bel Air than anyone else I ever met. And he gave me advice on many things that made my life easier and more fun in many ways. I will miss him. RIP good friend ! Your buddy, bill

Dear Family, I was devastated to learn of Boyd's passing. He was so much of our youth growing up. Always the life of the party. To family: You have lost a real treasure who loved family and enjoyed life so much. May his memories and life with you, always be cherished.
