BOYD Jr., ROGER W.*  
Roger White Boyd Jr., 73, died June 16th at Yale New Haven Hospital with his family at his side following a brief illness. Born in Meriden, CT on January 26th, 1944 Roger was a resident of Gladeview Health Care in Old Saybrook CT. He was the son of Roger White Boyd (deceased), and Barbara Cooper Boyd, 97, resident of Evergreen Woods Health Care in North Branford CT. Roger grew up in Orange CT, and attended Amity High School, graduating in 1963. He briefly attended Graceland College in Iowa, before returning to CT to enroll at the Culinary Institute of America, graduating in 1966. A wartime graduate, he enlisted in the Air Force, which trained him as an air police officer. His first posting was two years in Asia on base patrol, followed by a promotion to Sergeant and transfer to a base in Bermuda. It was here in 1969 that tragedy struck. Roger was the innocent victim of an on-base accident, which would leave him permanently disabled. Following an initial one year hospital stay, a variety of accident related ongoing health complications would mean frequent hospitalizations for the remainder of his life, the last two decades of which were in extended care facilities. Most importantly though, the almost constant battle with health issues never defined Roger. His first love was his family – in particular his four nieces and nephews, who he would playfully tease for hours at family gatherings. His positive attitude was an inspiration for his entire family, other patients and health facility staff. He was kind, generous and always put the interests of others above his own. When able, Roger dedicated his time and efforts to the patients of the West Haven VA hospital – accumulating a record of 18000 hours of volunteer service over many years. Here he proved his value with the patience to help feed injured veterans for hours on end. Roge had a great sense of humor, and loved to tell the story about how he was once sent by the VA to apprehend two long term patients who had "escaped" to a local pub. For himself he was always content with a cup of coffee, and a crossword puzzle or just someone to talk to. He was a member of the Orange Congregational Church, and an active league bowler when his health permitted. In addition to his mother, Roger is survived by siblings Sally Boyd Jegier residing with her husband Greg in Holland PA, and Bryant Cooper Boyd, residing with his wife Marie in Madison CT. In addition, his nieces Erika Oman of Long Branch, NJ, Christina Boyd of Norwalk CT, and nephews Dirk Oman of Chesterbrook, PA and Nicholas Boyd, residing with his wife Sharon in Lakeville, MA. Despite life changing injuries, Roger touched the lives of many in a very meaningful way, and he will be missed by all. A memorial service will be held at the Orange Congregational Church, July 22nd at 10:00 am. Contributions in his name can be made to the Fisher House charity, which provides housing for families of wounded Veterans near VA facilities.

In addition to flowers, it was Pat's wish that you perform a random act of kindness, read a book to a child or donate to your local animal shelter. The Reading Mother By Strickland Gillilan I had a mother who read to me Sagas of pirates who scoured the sea. Cutlasses clenched in their yellow teeth; "Blackbirds" stowed in the hold beneath. I had a Mother who read me lays Of ancient and gallant and golden days; Stories of Marmion and Ivanhoe, Which every boy has a right to know. I had a Mother who read me tales Of Gelert the hound of the hills of Wales, True to his trust till his tragic death, Faithfulness lent with his final breath. I had a Mother who read me the things That wholesome life to the boy heart brings- Stories that stir with an upward touch. Oh, that each mother of boys were such! You may have tangible wealth untold; Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be -- I had a Mother who read to me. www.westhavenfuneral.com
