John Ray Boyd

John was the son of Samuel Newton Boyd and Lena Lucy Porter. He married Floeine Edna Walker.

Uncle John was killed in an automobile accident. He was sitting in the front seat passanger side holding his sons', Don, adopted daughter. His wife Floine (Aunt Flo) and daughter-in-law and other daughter were sitting in the back seat. They were driving down a steap hill near Lake Tannycomo in Branson when the other vehicle met them head on tring to pass another truck. Uncle John saw the danger approaching and tried to hold his grandaughter in the seat. They rushed him to the hospital in Springfield in the mean time the others were treated for their minor wounds and they notified my dad, William Riley Boyd, his twin brother. It was a 4 hour drive from Independence to get there. Dad entered the room and stood beside his brother and watched as he passed away.
