UT United States Timothy "Timmy" R. Boyce 1976 ~ 2005 FARMINGTON - Timothy Rick Boyce, 29, died Friday, December 16, 2005 in Germany after being transferred from Iraq, of a brain aneurysm.
    He was born October 15, 1976 in Bountiful, a son of Rick D. and Tamra Jensen Boyce. On May 2, 1998, Tim married the love of his life, Sharon Strong, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They are blessed with the knowledge that their family will be together forever.
    He was raised and educated in the Farmington area and lived in North Salt Lake and Colorado Springs, Colorado. Tim was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Greenfield Ward, and served an honorable mission in La Reunion and Madagascar. He loved the gospel and taught others by word and deed and most of all by his loving example. He loved his Savior and sought His counsel.
    At the time of his death, he was honorably serving his country with the U.S. Army in Iraq. Tim loved his country, was proud of his service, and the opportunity to serve the Iraqi people. Tim enjoyed golfing, skiing, and trips to the family cabin. However, the great loves of his life were his wife, children and extended family. He spent every opportunity playing with his son, holding his daughter in his arms, and caring for his wife. Tim always had a smile and hug for everyone he knew.
    Tim's contagious laugh, unconditional love toward all, ability to be the life of the party, and gift to look for the best in everyone, will be dearly missed. Tim is loved like a son and brother by the Strong Family and is a great blessing and light to both families. The Boyce Family will cherish the memories of a wonderful son and brother. Timmy will be greatly missed by all who know and love him.
    Surviving are his wife Sharon, son Ammon Timothy and daughter Gracelynn Adaline Boyce, all of Farmington. Tim is also survived by his parents, grandparents Donald (Linda) Boyce and Boyd Jensen, all of Farmington; three brothers and one sister, Jeff Boyce and Brad Boyce, both of Arizona; Bryan Boyce currently serving an LDS mission in Brazil; Harmony Dawn Boyce, Arizona.
