Frank W. Joyce, 85, Horace, ND passed away Sunday, June 6, 2021 at Sanford Hospital, Fargo. Frank was born May 2, 1936 in Fargo, ND to Hargreaves and Inez (Smylie) Joyce. Growing up he lived in Mapleton, ND, involved and working in the local farming community before high school graduation.
He continued his education, graduating from North Dakota State University in Fargo, with a mechanical engineering degree.
Frank met and fell in love with a local farm girl, Patricia (Pat) Brosell. They married January 30, 1960. Right afterwards they had to move to Seattle, Washington.
Frank was immediately employed with the Boeing Aircraft Company. There he very much enjoyed scuba diving with others called the “Boeing Sea Horses”. It wasn’t long before he became a Boeing Field Representative and the travel began. His 38-year career took the family many places in the United States and overseas. Frank was an active man and worked at staying physically fit. He was an intelligent man, and a tease just for the fun of it.
He is survived by his wife Pat, Horace; daughter Nancy (Scott) Shepard, Cedaredge, CO; son Eric, Marshall, MN; sister, Mary (Paul) Lindsey, Rockfield, KY; brother David (Kim) Fargo; one grandchild (Johanna); nieces, nephews, and friends. Frank was loved by many and will be so missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Sanford Fargo Hospice house. 2nd Floor; 801 N. Broadway.
