Michael E. Boyd

1959 - 2016 PUTNEY Michael E. Boyd passed away Monday, August 1, 2016 surrounded by his family and loved ones. He was born in Brattleboro, VT on May 2, 1959. Mike was married on April 28, 2013 to Jodi M. (Crowl) Boyd, the love of his life. They were happily married for over 3 years. He is survived by his loving wife Jodi, who he adored. He is also survived by his parents Georgia Willette of Putney, VT & Ralph Boyd of Springfield, VT. Other survivors include his daughter, Danielle Ross, and her partner Kirby Monteith of Windsor, VT; his stepchildren, Ryan Moore and his wife Melissa of Winchester, NH; Heather Boyd and her partner Mike McCloud of Burlington, VT; Jessica Adams of Bethel, VT; Allen Boyd of Hartford, VT; and grandchildren Tyler, Kelly, Nattaly, Ethan and Calvin. He is also survived by his uncle, Ed Thirsher, of Vernon, VT; his brothers William (Billy) Boyd of Rutland, VT; David Boyd and his wife Tina of Brandon, VT; and his sister Brenda Boyd Burt of Sarasota, FL; many nieces, nephews and cousins; and extended family. Mike enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, dancing, watching westerns, listening to country music, and spending time with family and friends around the bonfire. If you looked up the definition of "country boy", you would see a picture of Mike. He especially enjoyed achieving his "bucket list" items of riding a brahma bull on his 50th birthday and a bronc the following year, as well as attaining his dream of traveling to Montana on his honeymoon with Jodi. Mike enjoyed a long career as a trucker, transporting chips and logs from Vermont to various locations in the Northeast and Canada. Previously, he worked on the Moyer farm in Middletown Springs, VT.
