Obituary

From the Spring 2002 issue of The Old Bostonian

Reg Boyce, widower of Lucy, died in Pilgrim Hospital after a long illness. He was 80. Born in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, he came to Boston with his parents in 1925. He attended Park Board School, before going onto BGS.

For a number of years he played cricket for the Old Boys XI and until this year (2001) he regularly attended the school remembrance services. After serving in the RAF during the Second World War he returned to Boston, where he will be best remembered as organist at the old Pump Square Methodist Church. He was also associated with the local St John Ambulance Cadet section.

In the 1960's the family moved to Chippenham, Wiltshire, where Lucy and he became wardens of Avonside sheltered retirement accommodation and he was an organist at the Causeway Methodist Church.

Following his retirement, he and his wife returned to Boston. They lived in Kingsway until his wife's death in 1996. He leaves three sons, Cam, Graham and Bob, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
