Boyd was born in Kitscoty, AB on January 23, 1931. He was a modest man with a tremendous and generous heart. He loved people and was always ready to chat. He was interested in just about everything; had a keen eye for detail and a remarkable talent for numbers, facts and figures. Boyd particularly enjoyed puns and was passionate about politics. He was a man whose highest aspiration was to love and take good care of his family. To the end, his main concern was for them.
