Boyce Harold McCuen, Jr., a well-known electrician who treated his customers like family, passed away on Monday, September 18, 2023. Born on October 18, 1929, in Greenville, South Carolina, Boyce was a true testament to humility, kindness, and honesty, and his incredible work ethic made him stand out in his field. He was a proud alumnus of Clemson University.
Boyce's lifelong dedication to his craft led him to become a master electrician like his father. He took pride in his work and often went above and beyond for his clients. Known for undercharging for his services, Boyce prioritized the well-being of others above all else. His reputation as a skilled professional with a heart of gold earned him the respect and admiration of all who knew him.
In addition to his professional achievements, Boyce also served his country with honor during the Korean War as part of the United States Army. As a medic in the 923rd/Medical Ambulance within the 3rd Army 25th Infantry Division, he displayed extraordinary courage and bravery. As recognition for his dedicated service, he was awarded the Korean Service Medal with one Bronze Service Star.
Outside of work and military service obligations, Boyce enjoyed various hobbies and interests. An avid reader and collector of National Geographic magazines, he immersed himself in knowledge about the world and its wonders. Boyce found solace in taking long walks amidst nature, camping trips that allowed him to laugh and joke with family, and expressing himself through playing his harmonica.
Boyce is survived by his brother, Charles McCuen; sister Catherine Muller; along with twenty-seven nieces and nephews who will continue to honor his memory through the love they shared. Boyce was preceded in death by his parents, Boyce Harold McCuen, Sr. and Jessie Garrison McCuen; as well as his brothers, Dr. William McCuen and Holbert McCuen; and sisters, Mary Jane Ashmore, Daphne Robinson, and Frances Schick.
A graveside service to honor Boyce's life will be held on Sunday, September 24, 2023, at Greenville Memorial Gardens in Piedmont, SC. The service will begin at 1:00 PM with Rev. Joy Bryant officiating.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff of ProMedica Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation and to the staff of ProMedica Hospice. The compassionate skilled care given by each staff member will always have a special place in each of the family members’ hearts.
