Jerry Glenn Boyd, of Dallas, Texas, died unexpectedly, December 25, 2014 of a heart attack, Jerry was born February 25, 1953 to Louis Preston and Dorothy Louise Deupree Boyd in Dallas, Texas, the youngest of five children. Raised in Dallas and Mesquite, Texas, he attended W.W. Samuell High School before entering the masonry trade, as his lifelong profession. He worked for several homebuilders throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metrolplex, eventually starting his own business in the 1970’s. As a master brick mason, over the last two decades, he worked in the refractory kiln industry, traveling from coast to coast installing and repairing refractory brickwork for dozens of companies. Throughout his life, Jerry had two passions: water skiing and shuffleboard and he was expert at both. He spent countless hours on the lake and at the “winning” end of many shuffleboard tables. His favorite hangout was the club One Nostalgia, where he won hundreds of games against the best competitors.
Jerry was preceded in death by both of his parents, his step-father, Alvin K. Seago and brother Larry Joe Boyd.
He is survived by two brothers, Donald Preston Boyd, of Austin, Texas and Mickel “Mickey” Dwayne Boyd, of Tool, Texas and sister Weida Louise Boyd McDaniel of Rowlett, Texas, his three beautiful children; Laurie (Jean) Grace Bouldin, of Dallas, Texas Jacob James Boyd of Dallas, Texas and Madeleine Kaylyn Beaudoin of Wylie, Texas along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins, as well as his long time friend, Dave Ewing.
