STOCKTON, Mo. (KY3) - A Greenfield, Missouri man died after he suffered injuries in an altercation with several at Stockton Lake.

The incident happened July 24 at a bar at a marina on Mutton Creek. Tyler Boyd, 26, died from his injuries at a Springfield hospital.

Emergency crews arrived to find Boyd knocked unconscious. An autopsy showed no signs of physical injury, but instead, he died from an internal brain hemorrhage.

“When I think about Tyler I just think about the absolute joy that just his life was full of,” said Pastor Nic Keith.

“Tyler was always up for a good time he was always ready to have fun he was always ready to laugh he loved to cut up and be silly and just to live life to the fullest,” said Keith.

On Tuesday, Boyd died from a head injury.

“When I picture Tyler I picture him with his little boy with curly hair, you know, on his shoulders, walking around, holding his wife’s hand, just loving life, and just loving, loving people. He was just absolute joy and just had the joy overflowing out of his life,” said Keith.

Boyd is survived by his wife, son, and unborn daughter. Boyd enjoyed being involved with The Mercy Tree ministry and working with kids.

The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating the case.
