Bob Boyd, 68 years, of New Alsace, passed away peacefully Sunday morning, April 12, 2020. Early on this Easter morning, Bob was surrounded by those that loved him. Bob loved his family first and foremost. He always put his family before himself and would drop everything he was doing to help them at a moment’s notice. He loved to make them laugh as much as he loved to aggravate them. Bob and Doris met her freshman year at North Dearborn High School when a teacher assigned her a seat right in front of Bob. He never took his eyes off her. In 1971, Bob married his high school sweetheart and this past January, he and Doris celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary. Their two sons, Bobby and Boomer, could tell many stories about their adventures with Dad. Bobby was enjoying the time he spent with Bob rebuilding a ’78 CJ-7 Jeep and Boomer was working with Bob on several equipment jobs together. Bob worked for 20+ years as a heavy equipment operator and was a member of the Local 181 Operating Engineers. He also stayed connected to his high school buddies and loved bowling with them on Wednesday afternoons. Bob’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren held a special place in his heart and his face would light up when they were around. He also loved his dogs, Zeus and Max. Zeus was Bob’s sidekick and would go anywhere Bob went and was truly a family member.Bob will be greatly missed by his wife Doris and their sons Robert “Bobby” (Roxanne) Boyd of New Alsace and Anthony “Boomer” (Paula) of Sunman; his 9 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren; his beloved dog Zeus; brother Larry Ray (Sherry) of Brookville, sister Nancy Lee (Robert) Dills of Port Charlotte, FL, and sister-in-law Renee Boyd of Moss Point, Mississippi. He is preceded in death by his parents Bruce W. & Thelma Lucille Boyd, infant son Bruce Edwin Boyd, brother John W. Boyd and infant sister Mary Lucille Boyd.A memorial service in Bob’s honor will be held at a later date so that everyone can attend. Those wishing to make memorials can make them to Family Wishes either now or at the future memorial service.

1 Liverpool striker Christian Benteke has vowed to “fight till the end” to save his Anfield career.The Belgium international came off the bench to score the last-minute penalty in the 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace on Sunday.His spot kick was Benteke’s first goal in 14 matches, ending a drought which stretched back to December 30.The 25-year-old has not started in the last six matches, with the return to fitness of Daniel Sturridge and manager Jurgen Klopp’s preference for compatriot Divock Origi as his second choice meaning Benteke has played a back-seat role so far this year.But his winner against Palace has given the £32.5million summer signing hope he can start to play a bigger part for the Reds.“It’s not the easiest of situations but you have to be ready,” he told Belgian newspaper HLN.“In a career you’ll never have only top moments, also your difficult times.“It’s in the most difficult situations that the real warriors, the tough men and determined guys stand up.“You have to be up for it. I have to take every chance, every minute the manager gives me: one minute, five minutes, 10 minutes, half an hour.“I’ve still enough ambition and enough character to fight in difficult moments. I don’t give up easily. I fight till the end.“In my mind I was never thinking about a move (in January). I didn’t want to leave.”Benteke’s penalty kept him alongside Roberto Firmino, who got the first at Selhurst Park, as the club’s leading scorer with eight – although all the Brazil international’s goals have come in the Premier League.And the striker insists he had no personal doubts about stepping up for the spot-kick despite him previously failing to score in 2016.“When the referee pointed to the penalty spot straight away I said I would take the responsibility,” he told liverpoolfc.com.“No matter what, I had to take it and in my mind I was sure I was going to score.“I’m very happy to help the team and I have to say everyone worked really hard, especially Divock in attack.“It was easier for me at the end because they [Palace defenders] were a bit tired.“Hopefully I’m going to score a lot of goals between now and the end of the season but as long we win that is the main thing.” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp congratulates striker Christian Benteke for his winning goal
