It was also in that year that he passed his national board. He has worked in the funeral service industry for the Boyd Funeral Home ever since. He currently serves as the manager of the now Boyd-Born Funeral Home. He and his wife, Jan, have raised a beautiful daughter, Brittany. Their nest has never been empty though, for they share a soft spot for God’s furry creatures. They are affiliated with the 1st Church of the Nazarene in Marion, OH.
