Henry Brown Boyce

Henry Brown Boyce, 67, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Thursday, October 07, 2021 at CarePartners Hospice Solace Center.

A native of McDowell County, he was born on September 10, 1954 to the late James Henry Boyce and Thelma Mae Gardin Boyce Hayden.

Henry honorably served in the U.S. Army as a Corporal. He went on to work for the Department of Corrections and then for the McDowell County Sheriff’s Department as a Sergeant under three sheriffs, Bobby Haynes, Jackie Turner, and Dudley Greene. He was also a bail bondsman for a time. Henry was a laid-back, all-around good guy who treated everybody the same. He enjoyed fishing, football, and NASCAR. Above all, he loved his family. He was a former member of Roses Chapel FBH Church of America in Marion.

He is survived by his wife, of 37 years, Regina Carson Boyce; four children, Artura Boyce, Timothy Boyce, Antawn Boyce, and Shawn Boyce, and their mother, Zondra Yvette Henry; one stepson, Bobby Foster, Jr., and his mother, Regina Boyce; one brother, Rev. James Boyce (Annette); two aunts, Hazel Boyce and Bernice Logan; and a host of grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

Henry was my Sgt. when I worked for the Sheriffs. He was so welcoming and was willing to teach me what I wanted to learn. I am so sorry for your loss.
