July 14, 1938 ~ October 31, 2021 (age 83)


CHARLIE WESLEY BOYD was the third son born to the late John Wesley Boyd and Nora
Lee Houston Boyd in Randolph County, Alabama on July 14, 1938. He entered into eternal
rest on October 31, 2021, after a lengthy illness. Preceding him in death is his beautiful
wife, Montray, a beloved son and grandson, Shawn Wesley and Shawn Phillip Moody, Jr.,
two (2) brothers Christopher C. Boyd and George E. Boyd, along with his parents are
rejoicing in their reunion.

Charlie Wesley Boyd attended schools in Alabama. He played sports such as basketball
and football. He went to night school in the 1980’s for air conditioning and refrigeration and
received a certificate.

He joined Shiloh Baptist Church at the age of 13 in Alabama. After joining church, be
became secretary of the Sunday School. Upon moving to Maryland, he joined Sweet Hope
Freewill Baptist Church and became a lifetime member in March 1958.

Soon after moving to Baltimore and joining Sweet Hope Free Will Baptist Church, he met
the love of his life, the late Montray Aldrich; he’d say, “Woman With The Pretty Legs.” They
were married on April 28, 1962. From this union three children were born, Tamara, Shawn
and Nicole. They were together fifty-one and a half (51 ½) years.

While a member of Sweet Hope Free Will Baptist Church, he was a member of the Usher
Board, #2 Choir (1973-1974), he was asked to be a Deacon (ordained in 1975). Later
years, he taught Junior Sunday School Class, Adult Sunday School Class and was
Treasurer for many years.

Charlie “Charles” has had so many jobs, to name all of them, he drove cabs, worked at
American Standard, Crown Cork and Seal and the Maryland Cup Company, until he created
the Boyd Transportation, which he ran for twenty (20) years. He retired in 2006.

He loved to converse with anyone about the Bible and what God has done for him. He
would talk anywhere about God. He was a very funny, giving and humble man who loved
teaching God’s word. He definitely was a prayer warrior. He could and would pray for
anyone at a drop of a dime. He also liked to talk about his business and his story of
everything that has helped him to get to the top to become very successful.

Those who will forever cherish his fond memories are: Two (2) loving daughters, Tamara J.
Boyd Moody and Nicole Boyd; two (2) grandchildren Jeanenne N. Moody, and Shawn P.
