Obituary for John Scott Boyd

John Scott Boyd: 1955 – 2019

A celebration of his life will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Strode Funeral Home Chapel. All are welcome.

I could write a million words about our dad, John. I could tell you about his life, where he grew up, and how he died. But I’m not sure that would tell you anything very important. At his service this Saturday, my brothers and I will have a chance to share all of that with his friends and family, as well as our best memories and lessons we are taking from him.

But for now, I am reminded of how my dad always told us that it didn’t matter what you did and it didn’t matter what you said… it mattered how you made people feel. I can’t think of a better way to sum up his life than to share with you a few quotes from his extended family about how he made them feel.

“John and I really had some Fun talks at my kitchen table!....He would just come over and talked about Everything!....Like how Lucky we are to have our wonderful children, grandchildren and for me Great grandchildren! What it meant to be a part of such a wonderful fun family that truly Loved one another and even loved doing things together. Like making our own movies that always involved everyone from the youngest in the family to the oldest. Many times he would look at me and say how lucky he was to have married my daughter with all of her "Crazy" family that he truly loved. How much he loved my Italian mother we called "Momo"! And all of our crazy Italian stories!....I will miss his wonderfully goofy personality, and some of his Crazy ideas even when he was in pain - he never totally lost his sense of humor!” — LaDonna Weir (mother-in-law)


“I never walked away from a conversation with Uncle John feeling less than inspired, motivated, and valued. His endless support in my endeavors, especially my teaching career, will always hold a special place in my heart, making me work a little harder and dream a little bigger.” - Sam Weir (niece)

"Since I come from a long line of worriers, it amazed me that John never seemed to worry about anything. Even though life threw far too many punches at him, he never asked "why me?" He would rather take the punches than see a loved one take them.”
—Kelly Torri (cousin)


“During my darkest days John flew across the country to support me without hesitation for which I am forever grateful. I love how John dreamed of making millions so his family wouldn't have to work as hard as he did. What John never realized is that what he gave all of us through his wisdom, adventures, and unconditional love, made us forever rich beyond measure." — Lori McDougal (Sister-in-law)
“John always had a comment that would literally “stop me in my tracks” giving me something to really reflect on. I always walked away from our talks feeling empowered to conquer the world!! Really!!! He so admired all the nieces and nephews and was quick to point out how amazing all these kids were! I remember him often saying he was going to buy stock in these kids! John lived life - to the fullest - and shared that love of life with all of us!” — Patty Weir (sister-in-law)


“Without a doubt John broke down any barriers created in a blended family by being truly interested in us as individuals and displaying a genuine care for all of my kids equally. For that reason and a multitude of other positive character traits he was loved and will be missed.” -Bruce McDougal (brother-in-law)

“My Uncle John has always made me feel important and valued. He always supported me and made me feel like I could conquer anything. Growing up he made me feel like the coolest kid in the room which is something I truly cherish and continue to carry with me. He was always so full love for the family and a conversation with him was never disappointing. I miss him greatly and admire his unique personality” ❤️ —Baylie McDougal (niece)

“Uncle john was the absolute funniest man I knew! Every-time I would go over to the Boyd’s house I would be filled with anticipation for what uncle john had in store! He would enter a quiet room and leave everyone laughing as he left. An amazing man with such great love in his heart.” —Christopher Weir (nephew)

"John was so special to me. I told him I loved him, and he said, you really love me? I said of course I do, and he said good to know I love you too! He always made me laugh smile, and every time I saw him, he had a beer in hand for me. He was always one of the kids. He’d rather be with the young ones instead of the adults. I miss him.”
—Peggy O’Neil (cousin)

"Thank you for being the host of cousin sleepovers, the leader of bonfires and staying up way too late, and creator all of the inside jokes. I will never forget the special bond we had and you will always be on my mind and in my heart. Thank you for being the best uncle and letting me be your favorite niece.” Caroline Weir (niece)

“To me, talking to Uncle John meant talking to someone who genuinely cared about me. He helped me to realize that who I am and what I do is important. It takes a special person to lift others the way he did.... it’s everything, and it's indescribable.”
—Megan Alvarado (niece)

“I always felt like Uncle John always made an effort to talk with me. His ideas and humor were out of this world, and he always made everyone feel like they belonged.”
—Rico Alvarado (nephew)

“Nothing is more valuable in life than a good friend that you look forward to seeing. John had become that to me. I will miss him.” —Michael O’Neil (cousin)
