It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Mark James Boyce which occurred unexpectedly on Thursday, May 21st, 2020. Born 1965, in Saint John, spending a lot of time at the family camp in Kingston, he was the son of the late Tom and Betty (LeClair) Boyce. In his earlier years, Mark worked as a Scaffolder with Jacobs and Aluma Systems as well as A-Z Rentals. He was a jack of all trades. He loved playing hockey, tinkering with vehicles, doing yard work and telling the best dad jokes. Mark was a loving and devoted father. His children and grandson were his pride and joy. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
