I am very proud of my four children, I believe we have raised some good citizens, and now looking forward to the grandchildren. Our two grandchildren are in Gilbert Arizona just outside of Phoenix with the oldest daughter and her husband. Our son and his wife just moved to Austin and are expecting their first (a boy) in November (2017). One of our twin girls married in 2016 and lives in Houston, the other will marry in October 2017 and lives in Ann Arbor.

I am re-establishing a Michigan presence, coming back to sink at least part of the taproot. Very much looking forward to reconnecting to classmates, old friends, and listening to the life's stories, travels, and experiences.

Happy Birthday Pam,

BRUCE GANER has left an In Memory comment for WILSON BOYD.
Aug 29, 2019 at 12:33 PM

June 3, 1951 – November 3, 2012


Wilson was a resident of Wellston, Michigan.  He was preceded in death by his wife Ann E. Walters

Wilson was a good and generous person with a great sense of humor.  Under that seemingly tough guy exterior was a truly caring and dependable friend.

Wilson, you were remembered by many people at the 50th class reunion.  Myrna released a memorial balloon for you.  Many regrets with how things went in the later years.  Sorry you didn't get the proper send off you deserved.

Danny, great seeing you at the 50th reunion and times leading up to it. Wish we could have visited more, but there were so many people (great turnout) and so little time. We had a great time, hope you and all did too. It brought back many good memories. Note, we will be coming up to Michigan and will be staying at our place in Cedar Creek around Thanksgiving and hope to meet up, get together then to spend more time. Until then best wishes to you and the family.
