Boyd True, 89, of Pryor, passed away on Thursday, April 27, 2023 in Pryor. He was born on August 5, 1933 in Pryor; the son of Earl and Emma (Keith) True. He married the love of his life, Nina Scheetz, on August 6, 1954 in Pryor, Oklahoma. Boyd worked most of his life as a Dairy Farmer. He enjoyed spending time on his land and tinkering with things around the farm. He took joy in being able to fix things himself. In 2007, he shifted his dairy farming to beef cattle. Boyd loved visiting with people and when he greeted someone, it was always with a firm handshake. He was full of laughter, a little ornery, and was known for his big smile. Boyd never failed to put a good spin on an old story and share it with his friends and family. He leaves behind a lifetime of memories for his family to cherish.
