Bill was born on April 22nd, 1934 in Oak Park, Illinois to Lee and Eleanor Boynton. He graduated from St. Charles High School in 1952 and attended Beloit College in Wisconsin. On December 19th, 1953, he was united in marriage to Carolyn Janet Yoder in Pitman, New Jersey. In 1966 Bill took a risk and started his own business, Boynton Plastics Service in the basement of the family home in St. Charles. He used the same philosophy for the business as he did in all of his life, to serve others with joy and to the best of his abilities. While Bill had not been active at the company for many years it still exists to this day, and its foundation remains the same. Bill’s greatest joy in life was Carolyn to whom he dedicated his life to especially in her last several years, providing her with daily love and care. Bill also loved to play golf, with his friends, his children, and most of all Carolyn and he had opportunities to travel and play in many locations around the country and Europe.

Bill is survived by his children Robert (Amy Milton) of St. Charles, Daniel (Theresa Potter) of Decatur, Nancy (Boynton) Stika (Scott) of Sycamore, many grandchildren and his sister Patricia Binks (Harry). Bill was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Carolyn who died on October 31st, 2007.
