  1. A little piece of my heart was taken today. Larry Boyce has passed. It’s unbelievable I usually am not at a loss for words, but this is extremely hard for me. As a little girl I looked up to Larry as a big brother… he was larger than life to me. Dressed in his police uniform so handsome so protective.I would dream of having a husband like my sister had in Lar. Much later in life I was lucky enough to married his best friend. Larry became not only my brother but one of my best friends too. Through the next 50 years or so we ( the four of us) shared so many beautiful memories. Much too many to list . Just trust me., we had some fun! We also comforted and leaned on each other through the toughest times in our lives. The worst of them being the loss of Jason, Larry’s only beloved son. But through Jason came Larry’s heart. His Granddaughter Shelbea. Pa as she calls him started a new chapter in his life. The joy in Lars heart was his immediate family. Kimmie his devoted wife. Amanda, his daughter in law and his precious Shelbea. As life went on, the once super athlete larger than life handsome man that we knew got sick. His heart just gave in … and a little piece of my heart went with him. Love you Lar, we will miss you.

  2. Larry was someone who was everyone’s friend. He had a great smile with an explosive laugh! He was Kimmie’s Rock and the Love of her life!
    Larry will be greatly missed and never forgotten! We all know Jason and Larry are together once again. RIP Larry

    Larry so loved his only granddaughter Shelbea and always looked forward to seeing her. She was his joy!

  4. Uncle Larry was one of the reasons that I chose Law Enforcement as a career. He was a great guy and I knew that he loved my Aunt Kim because you could see it on both their faces. Rest In Peace, Uncle Larry!!!

  5. Larry was our martini drink maker for our Christmas parties. He would make us laugh so hard and would have our drinks ready for the next round. I am going to miss Larry and his funny jokes. He will be missed by all. I will never forget him.

  6. I had the privilege of working with Larry at what was formerly called the Wayside Honor Farm in Castaic, Ca. Larry was a shift sergeant at the jail when our paths crossed. Larry was one of the most authentic supervisors I worked with. Nothing ever rattled Larry and he always was in command of emotions as he calmly evaluated the task at hand and charted a sound and reasonable response regardless if it was something routine or emergent in nature. Larry was an excellent leader mentoring young men and women as they began their careers. Larry displayed a warm and inviting nature. His wonderful sense of humor was appreciated by everyone on the department. He will be remembered by those whose hearts he has touched!!

  7. I worked with Larry at Santa Clarita Station and again at the ranch. I have GREAT MEMORIES of the time we spent together. My husband, Charlie (passed away in 2015) Jim Brent, Larry and I would our bicycles all over Valencia and Castaic. Larry was a pleasure to work with and a good friend. We went on a cruise to Mexico with a group from the station and such fun it was. Larry was funny and he kept us laughing and I know he will be missed by many family and friends.

  8. Met Larry at Altadena. We were partners several times. I always looked forward to working with Larry. Rest in peace buddy.

  9. I worked with Larry at Altadena Station in the mid 70s. He was a great guy and fun to be around. He was the kind of guy you wanted as a friend and a partner. Rest in peace Larry,

  10. I met Larry in 1982 working Patrol at SCV Station we soon became fast friends and over the next forty years we shared many adventures. Larry was a mentor to many, a great friend, a loving husband and father. Larry left us to soon and I will never forget the times we shared but I always will remember this quote and how it applies to Larry

    “The bond between friends cannot be broken by chance; no interval of time or space can destroy it. Not even death itself can part true friends.”

    RIP My Friend

  11. I got to know Larry Boyce in 1982 when I transferred from Malibu Station Patrol to Santa Clarita Valley Station and I instantly liked the friendly, easygoing nature and kindness as a human being and co-worker. There were several other times during my career at seven stations, and training where our paths crossed and he was that same good man. I’m fairly certain he knew my Dad, Mark, who was a deputy at Wayside MAX for most of his career, if memory serves me. My deepest sympathy to Larry’s wife and family, the family of a good man.

    “A good man shares his knowledge selflessly with everyone.”
    ― Eraldo Banovac

    I would add that a good man shares his kindness and love with everyone he knows and cares about. Larry was that man!

  12. I worked with Larry at Altadena Sheriff’s Station in the mid to late 70s. Great deputy, great man! Rest in peace, Larry.
