Boyd Eugene Jones was born July 5th 1961 in Beaver Oklahoma. He was the son of Gerald Marion Jones and Mary Ellen (Landers) Sprague.

Boyd grew up in the rural Elmwood area and attended Garrett Grade School. He attended Beaver High School and graduated with the class of 1982.  He then attended the Liberal Area Vocational Technical School for one year.

Boyd was active in FFA during his high school years. He showed steers each year at the spring shows. He would not be out worked when it came to brushing his calves and working their hair. His love for cattle and taking care of them was genuine and it was noted by many in the industry. His hard work paid off winning Grand Champion Steer at the Beaver Local Show.

Mary told Boyd early on in his working career, “Always give your employer more than he asks for and he will respect you. You will also deal with some customers that are hard to deal with. Learn to deal with them politely and limit your replies”.

Boyd worked at several jobs including National Beef in Liberal Kansas. He spent many years working at Downing’s Market in Beaver. He stocked shelves and sacked groceries among other duties. He enjoyed people and he was able to visit with many neighbors, relatives, and friends that came to the store.

Boyd was known for his love of people and animals. He never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation in a matter of moments. He was a kind caretaker to animals, especially strays. He always had time to pet and play with his animals.

Boyd departed this life on April 24th 2019 at the age of 57. His is survived by his Mother Mary Ellen Sprague, Stepfather John Sprague, one sister Kristina, along with many relatives and friends. 

The family requests memorials to the Liberal Animal Shelter (620-626-0576) instead of flowers because Boyd loved helping animals.
