Boyd Clinton Cornett

May 11, 1951 — May 17, 2024

Seminole, OK

Boyd Clinton Cornett, Seminole, OK resident, passed away on Friday, May 17, 2024 in Oklahoma City, OK at the age of 73. Boyd was born on May 11, 1951 in Cheyenne, OK to Glen Freeman Cornett and Jean Geraldine (Walker) Cornett.  He was a 1969 graduate of Southeast High School.  Boyd married Delilah “Dee” Ficke on May 1, 1970 in Oklahoma City, OK. 

Boyd enjoyed Harley Davidsons, fast cars, plinkin’, western movies, playing guitar and spending time with family and friends. He served others as a Mason and Shriner.  One of his greatest ways to spend his time was on his Harley. 

Boyd’s family shares he taught those around him how to pray, love and listen to Jesus. Following are thoughts shared by his family:

Boyd’s son, Clint shares he was a man with many textures and if he considered you family you absolutely were, blood or not.  He loved his wife, kids, family and friends.  Boyd rode his bikes hard and fast, side by side with many men.  He was a skilled mechanic, woodworker, guitarist and artist. Boyd never admitted to being a martial artist, but knew his way around.  Most importantly, Boyd’s priorities were always centered around his family.  Dee was the love of his life. He is missed by many and will be remembered by even more. 

Amanda, Boyd’s daughter, remembers their motorcycle rides and dinner dates.  They often shared one of his favorite snacks, cheese and mayo on crackers while watching TV together. He would carry her inside whether she was asleep or faking.  They would go to ALL the Harley shops in the metro and everyone knew him by name. Boyd enjoyed antique shopping as a family.  He would drive them to Papa Glen’s house listening to the Eagles.  He loved his guitars and would play for her when she didn’t feel well.  Amanda treasures that her dad was always there when she woke up from her surgeries. When life got hard he always knew what to say to calm her nerves. In fun, he’d enjoy embarrassing her, just to make her laugh.  He taught us how to be quiet in chaos so we knew how to react.   Boyd taught to never be the cause of people’s pain but “DON’T TAKE NO BULL”.

Boyd’s first grandchild, Skyla, says her grandfather was bad to the bone and impacted more lives than he realized.  With the good and the bad he was always able to teach a lesson that you didn’t know you needed to learn.  He was invincible; therefore, he will never die; he will live on forever through his family.

Faith, Boyd’s granddaughter, recalls his home was always open to them as well as all the neighborhood kids, day or night.  He has many grandkids, and he loved to joke with all of them fiercely.  

Boyd is survived by his wife, Dee; son, Clint Cornett and wife, Alice of Seminole, OK; daughter, Amanda Reeb of Yukon, OK; sister, Glenda Fudge and husband, Randy of Oklahoma City, OK; 10 grandchildren; brother-in-law, Joe D. Bradley (whom he taught how to play pool, ride motorcycles and be a good man) and many other family and friends.

Boyd was preceded in death by his father, Glen Cornett; mother, Jean Thurn; brother, Jerry LaVon Miller and grandsons, Brody Cornett and Noah Thomas Reeb. 

Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Swearingen Funeral Home in Seminole, OK.
