Boyd Lee Sword, 66, born on Oct. 1, 1940, in Monte Vista, Colo. and passed away on Oct. 22, 2006, at Parkview Neuro ICU, in Pueblo, Colo. Predeceased by parents, Woodrow and Doris (Parks) Sword; and brother, Raymond Sword. Survived by spouse, Martha M. Sword; son, Robert Ryan (Toni) Sword; grandson, David Sword; son, Michael (Randi) Sword; grandchildren, Robert Michael Sword and Cassandra Katlynn Sword. He is also survived by his sister, Linda Soltani; her children, Jason, Brady, Lacy and Megan; special nieces, Loretta (Mark) Vialpando; Loretta's two sons, Gabe and Gio DiDomenico; Christine Fisher (Richard Cook); Christine's daughter, Hannah Fisher; Bonnette (Gary) Bachelor; their children, Tiffany and Cliff (Jen);and their grandchildren, Alexandra, Bryce and Shelbie; Vicki Vega; her children, Dave and Nicole and his special yard sale and card playing buddies, Dorie Silverman and Virginia Hill. Boyd served in the U.S. Navy. He worked at the Pueblo Army Depot as a marker stamper in the missile program and later transferred to the Toele Army Depot, where he took an early retirement. He loved to watch TV with his pet, Sheba, and when he was able, loved to fish and go to yard sales. His health progressively got worse due to lung problems, fibromyalgia and cancer of the prostate. It made it difficult for him to get out much, but he never lost his sense of humor. We recommended that he pray real hard and he might be able to squeak through to heaven- that his wings may be a little bent and his halo might be a little crooked but he might pull it off. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Sunday, November 5, 2006, at the Montgomery & Steward Chapel, 1317 N. Main Street. Music is being provided by dear friend, Frank Marquez, of Marquez Brothers Mariachi Duo. All family and friends are welcome. Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, through Montgomery & Steward Funeral Directors, 1317 N. Main St., Pueblo, Colo. 81003 Online condolences, www.montgomerysteward.com.
