Boyce, David E.

March 8, 1967 - July 8, 2013

David was 46 years old born in Irving, Texas, and was a 37 year resident of Cedar Hill, Texas.  David attended Cedar Hill schools and graduated Valedictorian of the Class of 1985.  He went on to attend Texas A&M University for two years and then completed his Bachelor of Science in Accounting Degree at the University of Texas at Arlington.

David was employed by Affiliated Computer Services, a Xerox Company, as a software support accountant.
David is survived by father Ed Boyce and step-mother Alada Boyce, mother Linda Hall and stepfather Hermann Bockelmann.  Sisters Amanda Boyce Finger and spouse Aaron, Maggie Boyce Hollis and spouse Zack.  Step-brother Tim Hall, Jr. and step-sister Leslie Hall Montesantos.  Brother and sister by choice Matt Taylor an Jennifer Bothwell.

David also had a countless number of friends that will sorely miss him.
David was a member of The Cowboy Church of Ellis County.
He was a volunteer for the ministry Hidden Miracles – Respite Night.  This is a program that enables parents of special needs children to have a night out.  The parents bring  their special needs child and their siblings to the church for an evening of loving child care and games.  David knew how much this meant to parents to have this opportunity.  David had a special needs niece and felt this  was his ministry.   He always looked forward to Respite Night.

Condolences to Dave’s Family – He often talked of his sisters and nieces. My fondest memory of Dave, of course, was paired with laughter, at work when he’d fall asleep, I’d put my shoe under his nodding head. When he woke up, he’d throw my shoe back at me. I loved his poetry and our deep conversations of what heaven would be like, of which, I’m selfishly sorry he’s witnessing at such a young age. I’ll miss you buddy.

Lee Last says:

I can hardly remember my life without David. We have shared so many wonderful times together. We grew up together and were growing old together! I am sad that he is no longer with us but what a reunion it will be when we meet again! He is flying high with the angels. My deepest condolences to all of the Boyce family. Each of you meant so much to David. He always told me so.

My condolences to the Boyce family. Dave was always a good person to be around growing up and though a big kidder at times always knew when to be serious and help out someone in need. See you on the other side Dave, tell my brother I said hello please.

It doesn’t seem like 41 years since I first laid eyes on David.
He and Clint were instant friends and he will be missed by all of our family. My prayers and thoughts are with the Boyce family.

David was so very much to me. He touched my work life, my personal life, my family and friends. He was my rock when needed and mostly he was my smile when mine didn’t seem to work. I love him very much. He is my Friend!!

Linda Hall says:

David , it seems like yesterday that we talked and laughed but now a fresh reality which brings all the pain back to me. I loved you and Hermann so much, may you find peace in heaven together. Wait for me,
