Is the the Brian Boyd of Urbana, OH?

If so, I heard he was upset over his ex wife breaking thing off for good and a recent DUI. He went in a garage and turned on his car, ATV, etc. and curled up on a sleeping bag.

He had cooked dinner the night before for his parents (so they would have a last nice memory) and wrote a note tell them what bill he had recently paid and had not paid.

Very sad for his small son.

Yes, that was his brother Greg Boyd. He was badly hurt and has a closed head wound injury. He is at Ridgewood Nursing & Rehabilatation in Springfield, OH. It is on St. Paris Pk.His room is 103.
Im late May he was considered a 5 on the coma scale. He was not talking or doing anything on command. He has a trach and was not moving his legs much at all. Little is known about head injury, so anything is possible.

I was searching for some information on an old friend of mine that commited suicide back in the late 90's in houston TX and his name was Brian Boyd. He commited suicide because his wife was leaving him and he couldnt take it. he shot himself in the head in front of his wife in their master bedroom. Im so sorry for your loss Briana. Heaven has 2 wonderful men with the same name.

Hi. I think you are talking about Brian Ronald Boyd from Hurst, Tx? He graduated from LD Bell with me , in 1976? If so, I heard that he was deeply depressed after our 30th Reunion. I was told he went to his parents house in Plano, Tx. And shot himself there. His parents were not home. How horrible to walk in to that horror.
