We had a good crowd at the June dance with 68 members and 6 guest. Four of the quest joined the club.  Thank you very much!

Several of our members worked with the guest during the evening to help them learn the basics of each dance and we had a wonderful time teaching and dancing with our new members and guest.

Like to thank:

Metro board members for doing the decorations.

Jerry Boyd

With heavy hearts we must inform you of the passing of one of Metro’s founding members.

Jerry Boyd passed away this afternoon.  (July 11 2017)

He will be greatly missed.


Eulogy by Sherrill Boyd.


Heaven had an opening for a West Coast Swing Dancer. God chose Jerry. I bow to His wishes.

Gerald David Boyd, 84 years old, died July 11, 2017 at River Pointe Campus in Evansville. Jerry was born and raised in Flora, Illinois. After high school graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Served four years in the Sea of Japan, on the Passumpsic Tanker ship during the Korean War.

He attended Murray State College, earning a Masters Degree in Industrial Arts. The majority of his career was spent as an instructor for twenty years at North High School, and ten years at Reitz Memorial High School.

Throughout our marriage, there were numerous occasions when we were approached by young men, reminding him of their names, and thanked him for their successful careers in the electrical, architect, and building trades. Such compliments were an explanation of Jerrys' talent.

We were blessed to enjoy twenty retirement years of travel, dancing, and spending the winters in sunny Florida. We learned to ballroom dance every step along the way. In the process, we met some of the dearest, devoted friends we cherish to this day.

Jerrys' personal request was always to be cremated, and insisted there be no services. He spoke quite often during his five years of several critical illnesses, that his goodbye should never be in a room full of people speaking of "old times" — "what used to be"- and tears. It simply wasn't his way.

Jerry is survived by his wife, Sherrill. Two loving step-daughters, Kelley (Jeff) Hinton and Kris Van Winkle, one older brother, Gene (Norma) Boyd in Waterloo, Illinois and a cousin, Roger Rauch from Modesto, California.

Special appreciation to the staff of River Pointe Health Campus for their dedication and care. The Heart to Heart Hospice Team was remarkable.Thank God for the gifts of Dr. Mark Browning and Dr. Karl Sash. Their medical genius and hearts full of kindness were always in place.

Jerry requested that memorial remembrances be sent to: Evansville Wartime Museum, PO Box 6510, Evansville, IN 47719.

Goodbye my precious dancer. Thank you for being the perfect partner.

The loss of one of our founding members.
