Richard “Tom” Boyd,

Saginaw Twp., Michigan.

Beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother passed away Monday, April 12, 2021 at Edgewood Assisted Living. Age 85 years. Son of the late Leo and Mary (Nalevyko) Boyd, Richard was born November 24, 1935 in Saginaw, Michigan. He was a 1959 graduate of Hillsdale College on an athletic scholarship. He married Marilyn M. Davison, his loving wife of 60 years, on January 30, 1960. She survives him. Tom was a seventh grade math teacher at Chippewa Middle School in Saginaw Township for 35 years. He was a football coach at the former Douglas MacArthur High School for many years. He was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. Tom enjoyed winters in Florida, summers in his summer home in Tawas with his family, fishing and was an avid golfer.

Surviving besides his wife Marilyn are three sons, Craig Boyd and Kim Gilman, Bridgeport; Tom and Sharon Boyd, Saginaw; Brian and Michelle Boyd, Saginaw; six grandchildren, Ashley and Jeffery Fletcher, Milan; Lindsey Boyd, Essexville; Caitlyn Boyd, Saginaw; Hannah Boyd, Saginaw; Nicholas Boyd, Saginaw; Elizabeth Boyd, Saginaw; two great grandchildren, Boyd and Edith Fletcher; one sister, Jackie Leppek, Traverse City; three brothers, Leo “Smokey” and Betty Boyd, Bay City; Jerry Boyd, Grand Rapids; Patrick and Judy Boyd, Mt. Pleasant; many nieces and nephews. The family would like to give special thanks for the care given by the staff at Edgewood Assisted Living and Cardinal Hospice.

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, cremation has taken place and a private memorial service will take place at a later date. Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to Edgewood Assisted Living Enrichment Program or Cardinal Hospice.

Marilyn and Family. My deepest sympathies on the passing of Tom. What a wonderful person! I remember playing in the Maple Hill Golf Club 27 hole best ball Tournament as Tom's partner and guest and what a great time we had. I enjoyed our many conversations when Tom would visit Garber Buick to have service work done on his vehicles.
Tom was truly one of the good guys! RIP my friend.

Tom always impressed me with his kind personality. He put up with a lot, as my son rebuilt his engine in Tom's garage. Tom seemed to genuinely enjoy people. Our condolence to Marilyn, Brian and their families.

I never had Mr. Boyd while going to Chippewa Middle School. But I did go to school with his son Tom. My condolences to Tom and the rest of your family. I'm very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
