I'm sad to hear about Boyce, He is a great person. I've known Boyce many years and will miss him. We worked together for a long time off and on. I first met Boyce when I was apointed to the County Board of Adjustments, we worked together then and again when we both were appointed to the planning and zoning committee in Dewey-Humboldt. He was awsome to work with and have coffee with. He will be missed not only by his family but also by the many people who knew him and worked with him.
