Christopher Allen Boyd, 35, passed away May 6, 2023. He was born September 18, 1987, in Long Beach, California, to John & Laima Boyd (Dzerve).
Chris was raised primarily in Santa Ana, California. He attended Saddleback High School and California State University Fullerton. He absolutely loved baseball and played until an arm injury kept him from pursuing his dream of becoming a professional baseball player. Chris was a Boy Scout and scouted from the time of kindergarten till beyond high school. He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout when he was 15 years old. Chris found out he had carcinoid cancer of the stomach in 2017 but that didn’t keep the smile off his face or the desire to help others. Chris made friends everywhere he went and will be truly missed by many, many people.
