Boyd was a graduate of Thayer High School with the class of 1976. He then moved to the Kansas City area, where he lived for many years. For a while, he worked as a maintenance millwright. Then he became employed as a heavy steel fabricator for over 30 years, in which his duties included welding and shop foreman. During this time, he also taught welding part-time for 13 years at the Kansas City Metropolitan Community College. He retired in 2011. Soon thereafter, he moved back to Thayer to take care of his mother.
During his free time, Boyd enjoyed working in his shop on projects that involved steel fabrication. His real joy was riding and wrenching on his Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
