Scott Spencer Boyd1979 ~ 2013Cottonwood Heights, UTOur beloved son, brother, uncle, friend and band mate Scott Spencer Boyd passed away April 16, 2013 at his home. Scott passed on too soon, but his life adventures were countless and his impact on the lives of his family and friends is immeasurable. Scott is survived by his parents, Bill G. and Susan S. Boyd, his siblings Kyle and wife Jennifer, Kelly and husband Ryan, and Jackie, nieces Natalie, Zoe, Blythe and Halle, and Nephews Ethan, Colin and Jude. He has numerous Aunts, Uncles, and cousins that loved him. Scott's friends were the light of his life and no tribute to him would be complete without naming Coleman, Pete, Peter, Kimberly, Adam, Calah, Nathan, Eric and all of the Utah Lobstah's; he really loved you all and enjoyed his time with you immensely. Scott was born July 23, 1979 in Montgomery, Alabama. Growing up in a military family, Scott lived in many places including Alabama, Colorado, Oklahoma, Alaska and Utah. Scott loved to learn. He was talented in math and science, was an Eagle Scout and attended the University of Utah where he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Geology. He had mixed emotions about working in the mining industry due to his love of nature but he enjoyed his work at Kennecott. Scott was a music lover all his life, was passionate about playing the drums and always looked forward to band practice. He loved to go see live music and was the life of the party. Scott's quick wit, dry sense of humor and infectious laugh kept us rolling on the floor with laughter. He liked to fix things and worked alongside his brother-in-law Ryan on many projects. He loved the outdoors, especially skiing at Alta and camping in southern Utah. Scott was an animal lover at heart and is greatly missed by Sadie the chocolate lab and his cat Sprout. We will never be the same without you Scotty.We thought of you today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name. All we have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which we'll never part. God has you in His arms, we have you in our hearts. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, April 25 at Mountain View Cemetery in Cottonwood Heights. Visitation will begin at 12:00 pm and the memorial service will start at 2:00 pm. Interment will be at Mountain View Cemetery.
