Boyd was born on July 23rd 1971, to Paul and Jeanie (Heitz) Weekley, in Shakopee, MN. The family then moved to Aberdeen, SD and then Watertown. Boyd attended Immaculate Conception school and Watertown High School. Boyd enjoyed going to the Boys and Girls Club growing up. He also loved fishing, riding bike, and spending time with his family. Boyd sought forgiveness by asking Jesus Christ into his heart 5 years ago. It was through that and reading Gods word that he was able to find peace.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me" Revelation 3:20 (NKJV)
Boyd will always be remembered for his thoughtfulness, quick sense of humor, and his artistic designs in every letter he sent his family. He had a dear heart and gave unselfishly with a smile you couldn't forget. Everyone who met him could see just how caring he was.
Boyd loved and appreciated his mother very much. To him, his mother was the most beautiful woman inside and out. His outpouring cards, letters, and phone calls were just an example for his love for her. He thought of her as fearless and knew she wouldn't give up even when difficulties came her way. Boyd was so pleased to call such a distinguished woman his mother. He loved her honesty even when she let him know he was wrong. Boyd always knew how much his mother loved him and that helped him get through some of the most difficult times in his life. Boyd also had a (one-of-a-kind) relationship with his sister Paula. They had a unique and irreplaceable bond that no one could come between. A bond of love, care, happiness, laughter, smiles, anger, and sometime tears. It was through their shared tears that kept their relationship strong and pure until his unexpected passing. Boyd and Paula were very protective of each other. While growing up, if someone was picking on Boyd, Paula was right there defending him and vice versa. No matter the circumstances, they knew that they could count on each other. Paula is so proud to have called incredibly special man her brother. To the outside world, we all grow old but, not to brothers and sisters. We will always know each other as we always were. We know each others hearts. We share family jokes, we remember family feuds, secrets, family griefs, and joys. We don't choose our family, they are God’s gift to us as we are to them.
Boyd will be so wonderful to think of, but so hard to be without. He truly was a sincere soul, and we will all wear his memory proudly. May his spirit soar in the freedom from the fears that gripped him so tight. May he rest in peace until Jesus comes again to judge the living and the dead.
Boyd is survived by his father, Paul Weekley of Spokane, WA; his mother, Jeanie Weekley of Watertown, SD; his sister, Paula (Weekley) Anderson of Estelline, SD; his brother Kevin Weekley of Forest, OR; his nieces Jessica(Torin) Newell of Northwood, IA, Justine(Cody) Bye of Canton, SD, Jordyn Anderson of Sioux Falls, SD, Josie Anderson of Estelline, SD, and his nephew, Jax Anderson of Estelline, SD.
