Austin Boyd Memorial - College Fund for Wells

Austin Robert Boyd passed away at the age of 38 on the evening of Monday, September 28th.

Austin was a loving husband, father, brother, and son. He was born in Brunswick, Maine, the first of four children. Throughout his life he lived in many places, from California, to Florida, Virginia, and ultimately, Birmingham, Alabama. Birmingham is where he put down his roots, met his wife, started a family, and made a home.

Austin was an amazing family man. Austin and his wife Lee were married in April of 2012. They met - like so many others - in his kickball league. Their love and devotion for one another was an inspiration. 

In 2017, Austin and Lee had a son, Wells. Wells is a clone of Austin as a child. Boundless energy, constant smiles, and a warm affection. Wells meant everything to Austin. 

In lieu of flowers, we are requesting donations to this fund which will be placed in Wells' 529 College Savings Plan.
