Boyd along with his former wife Marguerite "Bonnie" Brown, raised their family in Augusta. He remained in the central Maine area, then retired to his beloved home, "Journey's End", on Millinocket Lake. Boyd graduated from Loomis Chaffe High School in 1958, and from Yale University in 1962. He served in the United States Navy, and had one tour of duty in Vietnam as an Operations Officer. After this he served in the Navy Reserves as a Lieutenant Commander. He relocated his family from Newport Rhode Island to Augusta Maine in 1972 where he began a long career as a salesman. He worked for many years selling real estate in Maine and was a member of the Maine Board of Realtors. Later, Boyd worked in computer technical support for Occupational Health Research in Skowhegan.

He loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing with family and friends, and he became a Registered Maine Guide. In 2001, he completed his first leg of a through-hike of the Appalachian Trail with his son, and he later returned to finish the final half in 2003 with friends. Boyd was predeceased by his parents, Boyd P. Brown Sr. and Marion "Sally" Safford, his brother Gary Brown, and his half brother Keith Brown. He is survived by his two children, Beverly Lawrence of North Yarmouth ME, and Boyd Brown III of Ashford CT, and four grandchildren. Boyd's family would like to thank the staff at the Maine Veteran's Home in Scarborough for the care and comfort that they provided him over the last several years. They would also like to thank VNA Home Health Hospice for their time and support during Boyd's final days. A memorial service will be held later this summer in Millinocket. Arrangements are under the care of Jones, Rich & Hutchins Funeral Home, 199 Woodford St, Portland. Donations may be made in Boyd's memory to the at www.alz.org.
