Obituary of Jackie Ray Boyer

Jack Boyer passed away on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 in Sun City Center, Florida with his family by his side.

Jack was born October 27, 1936 in Kansas, IL to Charles and Ruth Boyer (deceased).
He married Verna Beals on July 16, 1955.  They have 3 children – a son and twin daughters: Marilyn Boyer of Mattoon, IL, Carolyn Boyer Johnson of Las Vegas, NV, and Keith Boyer of Houston, TX.  He also has 4 living brothers: Bill Boyer of Oakland, IL, Bob Boyer of Paris, IL, Jerry Boyer of Windsor, IL, and Terry Boyer of Mattoon, IL along with 3 deceased brothers: Ted Boyer, Chuck Boyer and Jimmy (at birth).  Jack has 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. 

He lived in the Mattoon area for approximately 55 years and worked at the Mattoon Fire Department for 20 years. Following retirement from the Mattoon Fire Dept., he lived in Branson, MO and worked at Silver Dollar City for 15 years where we all enjoyed free tickets at our holiday family events.

 He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan all his life and enjoyed fishing and hunting.  Jack loved his family deeply with unconditional support, offering wise advice at times of need, and enjoyed spending as much time as possible with all of them.  He loved to travel and spend time with his family and friends where he always told funny stories that we all shared and laughed about repeatedly throughout these years.

Services are pending.
