Harvey Lee Boyd was born to Cleo Vincent Boyd and Sena Marie Anderson Boyd on July 27, 1939, at Port Angeles General Hospital.
He died at home as he wished with his beloved wife at his side.
Harvey went through school in Port Angeles and Joyce and graduated from Port Angeles High School.
He served three years in the Army, of which 21/2 years were served in Germany. He was also an avid World War II history buff.
Soon after his discharge from the Army, he met and married Faye Alita Boyd. There were two children born of this marriage. They were later divorced.
He started working for Ford when Andy Anderson invited him to be a parts man at his agency on the corner of First and Lincoln streets in Port Angeles. He worked for Ford for 36 years. When he semi-retired, he also worked for NAPA.
He was a member of the Angeles Stock Car Racing Association and helped build the Port Angeles Speedway. He was known for his ability as a custom street rod builder.
Quite a few of the other car builders found their way to his garage to have their questions answered. He seldom missed a local car rally.
Until the last few weeks of his life, he enjoyed being in his garage working on his cars.
Harvey is survived by his wife of 38 years, Thelma; son Steven Lee Boyd; daughter Yvonne Marie Boyd and her daughter, Sarah; and his stepchildren, Elizabeth Stallings and her three children, James Nason and his two daughters, Katherine and Mike Bretbach and their three daughters, and Kristina Nason, all of Port Angeles.
He also left a sister, Karen Boyd of Sequim, and her three children and a brother, William Boyd of Nevada.
In lieu of flowers, a contribution may be made to Assured Hospice of Jefferson and Clallam Counties, 24 Lee Chatfield Way, Sequim, WA 98382.
Visitation will be at Harper-Ridgeview Funeral Chapel, 105 West Fourth Street, Port Angeles, today from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., after which there will be a cremation.
