Boyd is a soft-spoken, passive, elderly, bearded clerk of the local town convenience store. Early has robbed and shot him on numerous occasions, with Boyd aware the entire time who he is, but is too compliant to stop him. Despite being robbed constantly by Early, Boyd is friendly towards him.
In the episode "Krystal, Light", he even suggests Early take all his scratch-off tickets instead of picking only a few tickets to steal.
He stood up to Early in "Gun of a Son" by threatening him with a shotgun by shooting his bag off (with the shotgun pellets glazing his head too!).
In "Dove In An Iron Cage", Boyd was revealed to have leukemia, and he didn't any health insurance, so his wife shot him and blamed it on Rusty so she can collect life insurance, resulting into Boyd's death.
Boyd's latest and most recent appearance to date in the show is a non-speaking cameo in "The Knights of the Noble Order of the Mystic Turquoise Goblet", despite his death in "Dove In An Iron Cage." Like Reverend, Boyd's character has currently been retired from the show.
Boyd is voiced by Pete Smith, who previously worked with Adult Swim. Pete Smith retired from Adult Swim on September 28, 2017.
Boyd plays a minor role in numerous episodes, usually seen as a background character, or a victim of Early's actions. He is usually robbed for unknown reasons most of the time.
