Anthony Boyd, Sr. Obituary

Anthony "Tony" Boyd, Sr. was born in Columbia, SC on July 25, 1960, to Dorothy Mae Boyd and the late Wiliam Douglas Boyd, Sr.  Tony was educated In Columbia Schools. As a child, Anthony was a part of the Central Baptist Church family. Anthony was employed for 7 years at Carolina Insulation and 30 years at the Owen Steele plant. Tony had several passions but was well-known for angling with his many fishing adventures and landscaping.

God’s plan is not always our plan. On April 2, 2024, the angels came for him to be with his Heavenly Father.  We will brave the grief that comes with it and understand that being absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.  

Anthony gave a tenacious fight and never once let up! Tony was preceded in death by his father, William "Bill" Douglas Boyd, Sr., Marvin Louis Taylor, and William "Billy" Douglas Boyd, Jr.

He leaves to cherish his memories his children, Anthony Boyd, Jr., Markus Boyd, and Doniece Boyd; seven grandchildren; sisters Debra Murphy and LaWanda (Thomas) Boyd; brothers Ronald (Sarah) Boyd, Jerome (Charlene) Boyd and Steven Boyd; Dear Friend Cynthia; and a host of nieces and nephews, relatives, and friends who love and miss him dearly.
