It is with a heavy heart we share the passing of Michael Grey Boyce, 62, on Wednesday, March 8th, 2023.
Mike was born in Raleigh, North Carolina on August 8th, 1960 to Mary Ellen and Julian Boyce.
Mike was a wonderful and giving Son, Brother, Cousin, Friend, Husband, and most of all, Father. His loss is immense and immeasurable by all who knew and loved him. Mike was fiercely loyal and surrounded himself with like minded people. He cared so much for those people that he always put the needs of others before his own, even when he was very sick himself. Always concerned and willing to take care of or advise anyone he considered his own, which included family, friends, colleagues, employees and anyone else.
Mike graduated from Garner Senior High School in 1978, and attended East Carolina University for 1 year. He joined the Airforce in 1982, where he served the 321st Missile Wing at Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota, until 1986. From 1987 until 1992, he was with the 319th Bomber Wing at Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota. After leaving the Airforce, he took several classes at Park College earning 2 degrees in Business Management. In 1993, he bought into the Interim Personal franchise and opened an office in Fayetteville, North Carolina. After selling the franchise, he started U.S. Logistics in 2001. In 2005, Mike started US Auto Auction, and sold U.S. Logistics in 2011. From 2011 to most recently, he consulted for many other businesses and ventures as well as creating Boyce Solutions in Myrtle Beach, buying, renovating, selling, and building new homes.
Mike is survived by his wife, Shannon; his children, Nicholas, Jessica, Christopher, and Seth; his father, Julian; his sister, Julie; his niece, Brandy, and Great-nephew Liam, as well as several cousins.
