Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

Syd­ney/ Glace Bay

It is with bro­ken hearts that we an­nounce the peace­ful pass­ing of Ray Boyce, 66, at home on Mon­day, July 13, 2015.

Born in Glace Bay, he was the son of the late Bernard and Carmella (Nolan) Boyce. He at­tended Holy Cross, St. An­thony and St. Michael’s Sr. High. Ray worked for Syd­ney Steel from 1969 un­til 1999. His in­ter­ests in­cluded trav­el­ling, read­ing, movies and at­tend­ing the Cape Bre­ton Scream­ing Ea­gles games of which he was a sea­son ticket holder.

Ray was a kind and quiet in­di­vid­ual, de­voted to his wife and a loyal care­giver to his par­ents. He en­joyed the sim­ple plea­sures of life and put other peo­ple’s con­cerns ahead of his own. His fam­ily was an im­por­tant part of his life and he en­joyed spend­ing time with them.

He is sur­vived by his wife Zelda (Tim­mons); broth­ers, Floyd (Bar­bara), Gary, Leo ( Janet) and sis­ters, Doneshia (Ran­dall) Morean and Ed­winna (Roger) Mun­roe; also nieces and neph­ews, Pamela, Liam, Sarah, Cory, Emily and Court­ney.
