FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Services will be held today for a Utah soldier who died from a brain aneurysm while serving in Iraq.

Twenty-nine-year-old Sergeant Timothy R. Boyce died last week at a hospital in Germany. He was taking part in physical training in Iraq when he collapsed on December 14th.

Boyce's father says doctors indicated the fatal aneurysm was present at birth, and had been growing ever since.

Boyce had been assigned to the Third Armored Cavalry Regiment's Maintenance Troop, Support Squadron in Fort Carson, Colorado.

His funeral is scheduled today at eleven a-m in Centerville, Utah. Burial with full military honors will follow in Farmington.

Boyce is survived by his parents, his wife, and two children.
