Celebrating the life of Charles Franklin "Chuck" Boyd
Thank you for signing Charles Franklin "Chuck" Boyd's Guestbook
I worked for Chuck in Supply when I first joined the Air Force in '92. He treated everyone the same whether you were E1-O6. God broke the mold after him. There will never be another "Chuck Boyd".

I first met Chuck when I applied for a position in base supply and I am so thankful that he gave me a chance especially since I didn't have any supply experience. It was later I met Pat his lovely wife. It was a pleasure knowing Chuck as a supervisor and friend. Pat and family my prayers and thoughts are with you all. May God's peace keep you as walk through this time in your life.

Pat and Family,
I am sorry to hear about Chuck passing. I have not seen him for a few years as Debbie and I now live in Ohio. i met him when I was at Shaw AFB about 1980-81. I always liked Chuck as he had a witty personality and we had similar interests, namely NASCAR and we were Dale Earnhardt fans. Chuck, Bones and I went to qualifying one year together. I remember he always liked to have his truck looking good. Great memories. He will be missed. God bless your family.

What a wonderful neighbor for 14 years! It was such a comfort knowing Chuck was next door and willing to come to my rescue if necessary. So many times he raked up his beautiful virgin pine straw and carried it to my yard for me to use. Such a wise man that is especially evidenced by his marriage to sweet Pat. May the Lord comfort you Pat in the days ahead!
