Boyce A. Williams, Jr. was born in Boone, Iowa, the son of Boyce Sr. and Doris (Coe) Williams. Boyce graduated from Boone High School in 1964. As a teenager, he worked for the former Modern Sign Co. in Boone and was a part-time member of the Iowa National Guard and worked at the Boone facility. Boyce soon became a full time member of the Iowa Army National Guard, serving 28 1/2 years, retiring with the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 2. Boyce was also a helicopter pilot at the AASF (Army Aircraft Support Facility) at the Boone facility.

In July of 1975, Boyce married Delores (Dodie/Dee) Peterson. After retirement from the Guard, Boyce worked as Hach Chemical in Ames and then became an ‘over the road’ truck driver for SMX in Fort Dodge.

He was a member of the Loyal Order of Moose in Boone, and the American Legion, first in Boone and later in Ames. Boyce enjoyed reading - especially westerns and mysteries, bowling, car racing, action movies on television, attending rock and roll and country concerts at the Iowa State Fair, gourmet dinner parties at the DMACC campus in Ankeny, and vacations at Lake Okoboji. He also enjoyed playing cards with his cousins, Phyllis and Jim Johnson of Granger, Theresa Pearson of Boone, and his uncle, Gale Williams of Boone.

He was preceded in death by his parents; two step-fathers, Paul Smalley and John Shaw; and two sons, Todd Allen Williams and Terry Aaron Williams.

Boyce is survived by his wife, Dodie/Dee Williams of Boone; a brother, Ross Williams and his wife, Donna, of Boone; a sister, Dorothy Knight of Stratford; his nieces and nephews, Ronnie Williams of Rosemont, Minnesota, Dr. Charles (Kathleen) Peterson of Xenia, Ohio, Michael Peterson, Michelle (Troy) Peterson-Raines, Connor Peterson and Freyja Raines; his aunt, Collette Williams of Boone; and many cousins.
