Obituary

BOYD

            Donald “Donnie” L. Boyd, 74, of Plumwood, passed away at OSU-The James Hospital on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, after a long battle with cancer.

            He was born on December 13, 1946, and was a lifelong resident of Plumwood and a 1964 graduate of Jonathan Alder High School.

            Donnie enjoyed fishing, golfing, everything Texas, going to the casino, The Beatles, Willie Nelson, George Straight and his once in a lifetime trips to Maui and Paris. He also loved Christmas and was so proud of his Plumwood Christmas House. He was an avid sports fan, especially Jonathan Alder athletics, OSU football and the Cleveland Browns. His greatest joy came from his family and friends and his life in Plumwood. He enjoyed telling stories of his life’s escapades and surrounding himself with kids. He never met a child he didn’t love.

Donnie was preceded in death by his parents Anson “Buck” and Irene Boyd and his beloved granddaughter Abby Hager.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Mary Jo (Elias) Boyd, son Chris Boyd of Plumwood, daughters Becki (Steve) Hager of London, Heather (Rob) Reynolds of South Vienna and his “second son” Chase Coil of Plumwood; grandchildren Liz (Matt) Morrison, Mitchell Hager, Keegan Hager and Baker Reynolds; siblings Tom (Larraine) Boyd, Bob (Jeannie) Boyd, Ronnie Boyd, Beverly (Dale) Peters and Sandra Taylor; mother-in-law Sharron Elias and many niece sand nephews.

The family will receive family and friends from 2-4 and 6-8 PM Sunday, October 31, 2021, in the EBERLE-FISHER FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORY, 103 N. Main Street, London. Funeral services will be held at 11 AM Monday in the funeral home with Pastor Clayton Coffey officiating. Burial will be in Plumwood Cemetery.
