Boyden, Michael Ronald

May 6, 1966 – March 8, 2016
Age 49 of South St. Paul, MN passed away on March 8, 2016, as the result of a fatal asthma attack. Preceded in death by mother, Marilyn “Micki”; brother-in-law, Tim Skwira; and niece, Jessica Skwira. Mike will be deeply missed by his wife, Michelle; daughters, Tiffany and Haleigh; granddaughters, Hannah, Tori, Father Ronald Boyden; Sister Shelly Skwira; brothers Randy Boyden (Kayla) and Ron Boyden (Nichole). Mike enjoyed spending his week-ends at the cabin fishing and when asked where he caught the fish he would always respond, “In the lake”. His secret fishing spot will forever remain a secret. He was a firm believer if people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be an absence of fishing poles. He was a devoted father, husband, brother and friend. Mike’s final act of kindness was to give the gift of life through organ and tissue donation, giving the gift of life so others may live. Celebration of Life 11 am on Saturday March 19 at Woodbury Lutheran Church, 7380 Afton Rd., Woodbury, MN 55125. Visitation 1 hour prior at 10 am. Lunch will be provided. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the family. (Published in Pioneer Press on Mar. 13, 2016)
