Boyd Read King, 60, went home to be with his Lord on November 1, 2000. He graduated from Abilene High School in 1957, Rice University in 1961, and the Harvard Business School in 1963, and served with the Texas National Guard and was a member of the 1955-56 state football championship teams. He was born November 20, 1939 in Taylor Co., TX, to Rufus C. Burleson "Burl" King and Ozelle Read King.

Both he and brother, Rufus, were members of the Abilene High School '54, '55, '56 football teams, which achieved three consecutive State Championships. In 1999, The Dallas Morning News named those teams "Team of the Century."
