Marlon Boyd Obituary, Death – Dear little brother, you have suffered a significant setback. You know, before to joining the Anderson/Boyd clan, I had never experienced a family dynamic quite like the one they had. And the brothers that I gained were the greatest gift, next to the children that I was able to have. After I broke the news to them, the first thing that the boys said to me was,
“Uncle Marlon always loved us like his own kids.” You loved each and every one of us in the same way, just as if we were your own. Always. You kept me accountable to a standard of behavior through that period that I will always be grateful for, and you informed me that no matter what, I would always be a Boyd.
Even when things changed for me and your brother, you held me accountable to that level of behavior. You knew @flightylefty back when we were all coming up in the West together, and you came up with him. This was a long time before Mike and I got married. Even before there was a piece of paper or even blood to prove it, we were always considered to be family. You and your family have always made us feel welcome and made us a part of the group. Those deeds will not be forgotten under any circumstances.
This is a difficult situation, hermano, but I promise you that we will honor you and carry your name forward in our lives and in our rituals. You will in no way be forgotten about in these parts. Our thoughts and prayers are with Shantel, the babies, and the rest of the family during this difficult time. Love has never been lost between them, and that won’t begin to change now.
