Obituary for Daniel Kirk Boyd

Kirk Boyd, age 48, passed away Thursday, July 26, 2018.

Kirk was an avid fly fisherman, a skill he learned from his dad. Nothing in the world made him happier than being on a river with his fly rod.

Kirk was a lover of nature and was a landscaper by trade. He loved all things wild and free. He had a passion for beautiful flowers and frequently photographed them so that he could share them with everyone.

Kirk is survived by his mother, Anne Groce (stepdad, Art), father, Rick Boyd (stepmom, Nancy), Kim Hayes (his best friend & soulmate), Dru, Tim and Tyler (his sons & pride and joy), and his sisters, Celeste Shumate (brother-in-law, Chris) of Alaska, and Melanie Baker (brother-in-law, Scott) of Ohio. He also had nieces & nephews, Anna (Andrew), Forrest (Shelby), Joy Paige, Evan, and Elise. And last, but not least, his faithful canine companion, Petey.

Kirk spent a lot of time in Alaska where he worked guiding whitewater rafting and horseback riding tours in Valdez, Girdwood, and Denali. A memorial service will be held in the fall in North Carolina and his ashes will be strewn across the Kenai River in Alaska, as Kim and his family, know this would be his wish.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to NC Wildlife Resource Commission 1701 Mail Service Center, Raleigh NC 27699-1700.
