  • Notes 
    • Obituary: Boyd Creer Roberts passed away on Thursday, January 20, 2011 in Orem, Utah having fought a valiant fight.

      Boyd was born May 10, 1926 to Boyd and Lillian Creer Roberts. He grew up in Provo, Utah and served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific theatre of World War II. He was a plank member serving on the U.S.S. Higbee. After graduating from the University of Utah, Boyd worked for Lockheed Missiles and Space as an aerospace engineer. He was fortunate to participate on many pioneer satellite projects.

      Upon receiving his MBA from the University of Santa Clara, he enjoyed the remainder of his career in project management. During this period, Boyd spent several years involved with Toastmasters International and passed on the skills he honed there to his grandchildren. In 1949, he married LaVon Bushnell in the Salt Lake Temple and together they spent forty-one years living in Northern California.

      Boyd was an avid gardener and grew amazing flowers and fruits. He understood the value of working hard and the benefits from doing a job well. In addition, he established a family home in Meadow, Utah that has served as a gathering place for all the generations who assemble there.

      For many years, Boyd enjoyed missionary work. He found great joy in the conversion of several husbands who joined their wives in the gospel. His sincere, genuine personality attracted many life-long friends. He enjoyed fishing, camping, and hunting with family and friends. His love of the sea and respect for nature's beauty never diminished.

      After the passing of his first wife, Boyd became reacquainted with a high school friend, Anagene Davies Meecham. They were married in 1995 and spent sixteen years traveling and spending time with their blended families. They particularly enjoyed spending winters in St. George with former High School classmates. The greatest lesson Boyd taught his family was how to truly love each other and serve one another.

      He is survived by his wife, Anagene; brothers William Roberts and James Roberts; daughters Rita (Don) James of Spanish Fork, Utah and Janna (Brad) Johnson of Draper, Utah, Christine Meecham, Tom (Terri) Meecham, Susan (Gary) Morse; eighteen grandchildren and step-grand-children; and many great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother, wife, and great-grandson, Matthew James.

      Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 in the Edgemont Ninth Ward Chapel, 4300 North Canyon Road, Provo, Utah. Friends may call at Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 East Center Street, on Tuesday evening from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. and at the Church on Wednesday from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to the services.
      Interment: Meadow City Cemetery, Meadow, Utah.
