William J. Boyes, Jr. formerly of Mayfair passed away on Monday February 10, 2020 at Nazareth Hospital after a long illness at the age of 73.

Bill served as an Army Radio Specialist in Vietnam from March of 1966 to March of 1967. When he returned home, he went to work for SEPTA as a trolley driver and later transferred to the High Speed Division where he spent most of his working years as a Supervisor on the Market Frankford El. He truly enjoyed his trains.

Bill loved sports and especially his Eagles and his Phillies. He was a diehard supporter of both whether they were winning or losing. There was no jumping on and off the bandwagon. Bill stepped on at a young age and stayed on for the rest of his life. He had many happy vacations but his favorites were traveling in the RV. A month long campground vacation in Clearwater for Phillies Spring Training was a dream fulfilled for both him and his wife.

Bill had many great friends, with whom he loved spending time but his family was the most important thing in his life and he always felt blessed by the wonderful children he raised, their spouses and grandchildren who always brought him nothing but pride. He will be missed by all but has left a legacy of beautiful memories for everyone to enjoy.
