Timberlake lost a dear friend and father as Spencer Boyd went to be with the Lord early yesterday morning. As the director of Merri-Mac, and the father of six sons Spencer missed working boys, so in 1983 he and Dot established Timberlake. He used to say that directing a camp was like running a small city, and more times than not he could be found running that city while sitting in a saddle, riding Leroy, or Justin, or Molly, or Henry. Spencer loved his family, and his campers and staff were always part of that family. A Celebration of Life Service will be held Wednesday, January 2, 2013, at 1:00 pm, at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Swannanoa. The family will receive friends Wednesday, January 2, 2013, from 11:00am – 12:00 pm, at Harwood Home for Funerals in Black Mountain.
