Mark Alan Boyd was born August 11, 1953 in Waco, Texas to Brownilee and Walter Boyd. He attended Baylor University as a Citizens National Bank Scholarship Recipient and went to work for Citizens National Bank upon his graduation. He spent 33 years of his career in that building through numerous name changes until retiring from Bank of America in 2004. He then went to work for Community Bank and Trust where he worked until his passing.

He enjoyed being actively involved in the Waco community and served in leadership roles for many organizations, including the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce, Waco Business League, United Way, Waco Industrial Foundation, Waco Performing Arts Co., Cameron Park Zoo, Baylor Waco Foundation, the City of Waco Transportation Committee, Waco Founders Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity, Leadership Waco, and Central Texas Lighthouse for the Blind.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Mark is survived by his wife of 42 years, Cindy Veselka Boyd; his son, Alan Scott Boyd and wife Karen; daughter, Alison Boyd Kutschera and husband Timothy, and daughter, Amanda Boyd Bonovitch; grandchildren, Katelyn, Jacob, and Zachary Kutschera and Nicholas Bonovitch. Also surviving are brothers, Parker Boyd and Brett Boyd and sister-in-law Debby Boyd.

Mark loved his family, Waco, and Baylor University. He was passionate about his work and had a smile and a kind word for everyone he met. He was the ultimate professional. He enjoyed spoiling his grandkids, hunting with his family, and golfing with his friends, especially his yearly Rancho trips. He hosted amazing backyard barbecues and loved his yearly fall festival trips with his grandchildren in Pennsylvania.

Memorials may be made to Habitat for Humanity, the Cameron Park Zoo, or the organization of your choice.
