Merri-Mac lost a dear friend and father as Spencer Boyd went to be with the Lord early yesterday morning. From 1977 to 2000 Spencer was the heart of camp as he played his guitar, coached diving, and swung from the rafters. He used to say that directing a camp was like running a small city, and more times than not he could be found running that city while sitting in a saddle, riding Leroy, or Justin, or Molly, or Henry. Spencer loved his family and his Merri-Mac girls were always part of that family. He will long be memorialized in the announcement song, every “BE QUIET – HEY” that echoes through Tucker Inn and the affection of each of his campers and staff.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held Wednesday, January 2, 2013, at 1:00 pm, at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Swannanoa.
The family will receive friends Wednesday, January 2, 2013, from 11:00am – 12:00 pm, at Harwood Home for Funerals in Black Mountain.
