Douglas Keith Boysel, 54, of Narvon, Pa., passed away peacefully at home Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017. He suffered from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome for the past 14 years.
Born and raised in Urbana, he was the son of Wilbur Harold Boysel, who survives in Urbana, and the late Alice Mattox Boysel. He attended West Liberty-Salem High School and graduated from Clark State Community College in Springfield with a degree in agricultural mechanics.
Doug was hired on with New Holland North America in June 1983 at the Columbus depot location. The company moved him to Troy, Mich., and then on to New Holland, Pa., where he stayed for the rest of his career at the company now known as CNH Industrial. He was so proud to have worked for a tractor manufacturer but never thought it would be in the office. He felt fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel for the company to many countries including Italy, Germany, Austria, France, Australia, England and Brazil.
He was married five years on Sept. 26 to Lynda ReFalo Boysel. He loved Mustangs and Ford racing, NASCAR, reading car magazines, but being with family was his most precious joy.
Surviving family in addition to his wife include his two daughters, Bethany Nichole (Brandon Glenn) Parmer of New Holland, Pa., Hillary Mae (Carl Gordon) Vanidour of Warren, Mich.; a granddaughter, Sarah Paulette; and his brother, David Harold Boysel of San Francisco, Calif.
A funeral service begins at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, at the Beck Funeral Home, 315 E. Main St., New Holland, Pa., where calling is from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
