Lives Lost: Twins were gentle giants in small Vermont town
In this Aug. 8, 2012, photo provided by Meghan Boyd Carrier, her father, Cleon Boyd, left, and his twin brother Leon Boyd perform during her wedding in Readsboro, Vt. Cleon died from the coronavirus on April 3, 2020. It also claimed his twin brother Leon, who died a week later at a hospital across the border in New Hampshire. With all the pandemic stuff going on and the way my dad died first from the virus, I think it has left a mark on people. The procession made its way past an elementary school, the Boyd Family Farm and the homes of relatives. Bill Adams had played fiddle with Cleon and Leon Boyd and dedicated a version of Amazing Grace to the men after they died.
