The Daily Titan is sad to report that former Daily Titan advertising employee and communications student Rich Boyd died after losing control of his car on the 101 Freeway on Sunday night. No details have been reported about the accident yet. Boyd was a beloved employee and the staff joker. He was well-known for always playing his Dave Matthews music, talking about his hobby of drag racing and taking people for rides in his El Camino SS 454.
“Rich was an incredibly vibrant person, and you couldn’t help but smile when you were around him because his goal was to make people happy every day,” said CSUF alumna and former Daily Titan Advertising Manager Emily Alford. “Rich loved his car, loved John Force, loved Dave Matthews and loved his friends.”
Boyd would go to any lengths to make people laugh. The most memorable moments of Boyd included the times he won a holiday decorating contest by displaying a manger with baby Jesus on his desk, and when he would pretend to be his alter ego, “Juicy.”
Boyd was a family man and is survived by his parents and two sisters.
Boyd was working toward a career as a disc jockey after he had acquired his own radio show on Titan Radio. People were naturally drawn to his charisma and had a wonderful time when he was around. He was loved by all and will be truly missed. Services will be held on Monday.
We raise our glasses to you. Cheers!
