Richard Wayne Boyce, 74, passed away on Sunday, December 22nd in Suffolk, VA with his beloved wife JoAnn by his side.  He was born in Norfolk, VA to Dasylin and Alma Boyce on October 30, 1945.

Richard grew up in Norfolk where at an early age he developed into a star athlete.  He began playing basketball in the Norfolk Recreation League.  He later excelled in 3 sports at Norview High School and was an exceptional basketball player at ODC (now ODU). After college graduation, Richard taught and coached basketball in Buckingham County and later at Deep Creek High School.  He ultimately left teaching and enjoyed a successful career in sales management at various Tidewater dealerships.
