To Serve Others As We Would Serve Ourselves
We will better serve the bereavement needs of our community through the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and integrity.
In 2008, November 14th was declared William Francis Boyd Sr. Day to honor his 75 years of service to our community. During his life, William Sr. was a dedicated and beloved father, husband, and public figure. He loved to give back to those around him and led a life of service to others.
William Sr. served as the chairman of the first NAACP Freedom Fund Dinner, Vice President of the Cleveland School Board, and was a member of several other local organizations throughout his lifetime. We are proud of his legacy and all he did for others around him.
