Will Boyack

In the Townsville Bulletin on the 24th June Rachel Riley paid the following tribute to Will.

 

"HE PUT his life on the line for his country and even after his tragic death, army veteran Sergeant William Boyack will still save lives.

Sgt Boyack, 40, died in Townsville Hospital on Wednesday after succumbing to critical head injuries he sustained in a crash just before 7.30am on Monday.

The father-of-two was riding a motorcycle on Ingham Rd when it collided with the rear of a light truck at Bohle. His heartbroken family yesterday expressed their sadness over the devastating loss.

“Will was a beloved husband, father, brother, son, uncle and mate to many,” the family said in a statement. “He was a quick-witted, loveable larrikin who was respected by all and will be very sorely missed.”

Despite their grief, the Boyack family made the difficult decision to donate Sgt Boyack’s organs.

“In lieu of floral tributes, the family would like to encourage everyone to join the Australian Organ Donor Register and make a blood donation at your nearest Red Cross Blood Donation Centre,” the family said.

Sgt Boyack was posted to Defence Force Recruiting in Townsville and had previously served with the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment (Queensland Mounted Infantry), B Squadron 3rd/4th Cavalry Regiment and the School of Armour.

During the almost 18 years Sgt Boyack served his country, he had been deployed to East Timor, Iraq twice and Afghanistan.

A GoFundMe page has been created to raise money for the Boyack family.
