Fleming Boyd Newby

October 31, 1942August 11, 2019

Boyd lost his 9 year battle with Parkinson’s Disease on August 11, 2019. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Judi, his children Kyle Emerson and Jeff Newby, his daughter-in-law, Rochel Emerson and his grandson Grady Emerson.

Boyd had a lucrative career with California Department of Forestry (CalFire) from 1962 to 1997. He was a great fireman and he loved helping people. He gave his time, his knowledge, and his heart to everyone he encountered. He loved the outdoors, gardening, hunting, fishing, hiking. He loved his family unconditionally. He would do anything for a friend. His dedication and passion for his work and career are unfounded. He was a beloved husband, a loved and respected father, an adored grandfather, and a true loyal friend.

Always fun working with you Boyd, I remember flying a fire near Riverside and you on a fire in the River bottom a no fly zone. You asked me to fly over because you had “one foot on the dock and one on the boat”. To this day I use that phrase. Thanks for the memories god bless your family

We spent a lot of time together putting out fires. Our long discussions when the fire had died down and we were stuck on night shift, I won't forget. Thanks for the memories.
