Gospel preacher.

Kenneth (Corky) Boyd, beloved preacher for the Wills Point, Texas, church of Christ, lost his lingering battle with cancer Monday, Aug. 8, and his funeral was held there on Wednesday with hundreds packing the entire building and yard. Bert Groves and Hulen Jackson spoke. Corky spent 20 years in Mesquite building up the College and Locust church from 100 to 800; then he spent 10 years in the small town of Wills Point with that church showing amazing growth. He never married and leaves only a niece and three foster sons whom he educated. Very few preachers work harder than he did giving himself completely to the church and the community. Gospel Advocate, September 1, 1983, page 540.

Corky Boyd
Soldier of the Cross
1929-1983

He was our preacher for ten years
He gave and was given unto
He loved and was loved
He was humble and was shown compassion
He comforted and found comfort
He ministered and ministered unto
He preached to everyone and God blessed him
He touched the lives of many with a generous heart and tender spirit
He remains here with us in memory, in spirit and example.
