Dallas Works Memorial - Employees In Remembrance

Andy Boyd ANDY COTTON BOYD died on Jan. 3, 2020 at his farm in Ottawa, KS just two weeks before his 77th birthday. He had played golf just the day before. He was found outside on the farm where he had been working on a greenhouse and had suddenly passed from his heart stopping. Andy was born in Lawrence, KS to Richard & Grace Boyd on Jan. 27, 1943. He has two brothers who still live in Kansas, Tom and Bob. He attended Lawrence High School, Kansas University, then onto Pittsburg State University where he received his BS in Electrical Engineering. His first and only job was for nearly 30 years in the AT&T system before he “retired” and moved around between Dallas, Beijing, New Jersey, Virginia, and Kansas. Andy loved keeping his mind sharp by building, creating and mending his hobby farm in Kansas. He passed while doing exactly what he loved. Andy is survived by his wife, Shirley Sun, sons Jack Boyd (Kansas City, KS) and Ross Boyd (Dallas, TX), daughter Rachel Boyd (Dallas, TX), stepdaughter Sommer Austin (Austin, TX), and grandchildren Will, Wyatt, Riley, Pan and Rory.
