Cindy & Family, So sorry to hear of David's passing. I wanted to let you know our thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate His life and all he meant to you and your church family. I enjoyed serving with David as a Worship Assistant and also worked with him on environmental issues while he was at Briggs. I had the utmost respect for David and know he will be missed. I regret I was unable to share this personally but please know Fran and I are thinking of you and our fond memories of Cross of Life. Dave Lupardus

FIRST Lego League Team "LOL" left a message on July 1, 2020:
We met Dave eight years ago through FIRST Lego League at a competition where he was a judge. Our team was known as “LOL,” FLL team #2430. Our team of girls was nervous, but Dave’s laughter and conversation with them put them at ease. At subsequent competitions, the girls would get so excited when they saw “their favorite judge.” He inspired them with his encouragement. As we continued in FIRST and began judging and volunteering, we got to know him better and looked forward to judging with him. Acts 20:35: In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ Dave was someone who was always giving of himself. We are blessed to have known Dave and are grateful for his willingness to give to others! Fondly, Team 2430 - LOL Team Members: Hailey Beyer, Jessica Gatewood, Rebecca Gatewood, Aleksey Hicks, Claire Johnson, Emma Johnson, Janelle Johnson, Lauren Parsons, Natalie Wessel, Hannah Willer Coaches: Brent Gatewood, Eric Johnson, Julie Wessel, Mark Willer

All my thoughts and prayers are with Dave's family at this time. I had the honor to work with Dave during his time at Stantec. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and educating others during each project & audit we worked on together. I will most remember his sense of humor and laughter.
Lili Whyte left a message on June 30, 2020:
I joined the Boyd family 22 years ago and I can recall the first time I met Dave. He was warm, kind, and had the most wonderful laugh. Dave was one that made anyone feel welcomed from the start. A kind, gentle person who lit up a room! You are going to be missed, Dave!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Kevin Darnell left a message on June 30, 2020:
I worked with Dave at B&S during his tenure their. I will always remember him as a good friend and co-worker. It grieved my heart to hear about the loss to this world. I will pray for peace and understanding for you during this time of sorrow.
Karen Boyd left a message on June 30, 2020:
"Hey Sis!" Those were the first words that would come out of David's mouth when I saw him. I looked forward to them as they were always a comfort to me because they were genuine and filled with love. I will miss those words. My heart breaks for Cindy, Ryan (Katie), Erica and Steven. His thoughtful, calm, caring, loving presence in all our lives will be undeniably missed. Thank-you for your years of encouragement, strength and support of myself and my children and Mom. Thoughts of your big, warm hugs will stay with me and continue to give me comfort. I love you. Karen

I think fondly on the last time we were together and am glad I got to meet you again after so many years, cousin. I am thinking of and praying for your children, wife, brothers, sister and other family and friends during this difficult time. Sending you all my love. Perry
Kristen Gunderson-Inden left a message on June 29, 2020:
May happy memories fill all of your hearts. I was lucky enough to have known Dave for a number of years and worked with him at RMT and Stantec. He was my manager for the past 1.5 years. Even luckier to have called him a friend and mentor. His big laugh and is funny "hello" will forever remain in my head and heart.
Cheryl Thomsen left a message on June 29, 2020:
Cindy and family - we are so sad to hear this news. I will never forget my week spent with David in the Boundary waters with the high school kids from COL. Especially the night I was sure there a bear in our campsite - only to realize it was David snoring! What a gift he was. I am sure you all are missing him terribly. God bless you and guide you through this most challenging time your lives. Love and prayers to you
Patricia Hanz left a message on June 29, 2020:
My heart goes out to you for your sudden and tragic loss. I worked with Dave for decades and found him to be one of the smartest and most genuine people I have ever met. Know that he loved you and was incredibly proud of your accomplishments. You no doubt have many, many happy memories and I hope they provide you with a source of strength and comfort. Patty
Melanie Klamar left a message on June 29, 2020:
I had the pleasure of working with Dave during his RMT days. I could always count on him for a smile or a laugh, especially during a stressful day at the office. My heartfelt condolences go out to Dave's family - may God comfort you today and always.
ALEXANDER JUHASZ left a message on June 29, 2020:
I was honored to have worked with Dave in the past. I will always remember him for his humor, optimism, and kindness. I will sorely miss hearing his laugh. My sincerest and deepest condolences.
Kris Johnson left a message on June 28, 2020:
Cindy, Ryan, Erica, and Steven - Our hearts are with you. You were so lucky to have David as your husband and father, and he was crazy lucky to have you. When the grief eases, I hope you will feel and remember the love and the joy. Peace and blessings to you. Kris
Scott Johnson left a message on June 28, 2020:
Cousin David, We grew up together, for a while. I remember the get togethers at your house, our house and grandpa & grandma Boyd’s house. We would get a bit crazy & the adults, drinking coffee in the other room, would come in & settle us down before too much damage happened to the house & it’s contents. We moved to California when I was 9, so you were 12. I didn’t see you much after that. We grew up & had our respective lives & families. Now you’ve moved on & I have to come to terms with that. It is said that “Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.” Rest in Peace, cousin David. Namaste…
James W. Boyd left a message on June 28, 2020:
I am thankful I had a good conversation with David last summer at Schreiners when I got a fresh glimpse of his sense of humor and clear thinking about all sorts of matters. The whole Boyd family will remember and miss him.
Carol Johnson left a message on June 27, 2020:
Thank you for your kindness. Love, Aunt Carol
Mark Boyd left a message on June 27, 2020:
David, my brother: Every breath and every heartbeat of yours have been during my lifetime. Now it is time to say goodbye way too soon. I expected you to be with me during our sunset years. You were one of the "good guys" that shepherded light, life, and compassion to so many in your time on Earth. As a scientist, a sensitive soul, and a pragmatic person, you brought much to the table both intellectually and philosophically. We may have argued on occasion, but I never disregarded your judgments (even when you were wrong). There is a hole in the Skip and Nancy Boyd family now which can never be filled. Going forward, I cannot imagine a day without you in it. Rest in peace, little brother. May God embrace you with open arms and a warm smile. Love, your "Big Brother."
Jane & Mike Gatzke left a message on June 27, 2020:
Cindy and kids -- we are just so saddened to learn of David's sudden passing. We are thinking of you all and praying that God will bring you the peace that only He can provide. Hugs to you all. Please know that you are in our prayers.
Julie Cozad left a message on June 27, 2020:
So sorry to hear about David. Thankfully you have your children and COL family to share memories with now and in the future. I have been thinking of you. Love, Julie Cozad
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Our deepest sympathy to you, Cindy & to your beautiful family. We pray the God of all comfort will be with you.
Margie Heyworth left a message on June 26, 2020:
David and I chaperoned many a youth event together. His easy laugh and willingness to serve will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Angela Cleveland left a message on June 26, 2020:
My thoughts and prayers are with you all right now. Not a day will go by that I won't think of David. He has a way of making everyone feel special and was a genuinely caring person. He will be greatly missed
