He was raised with his brothers; Charles Boehrer, deceased, and Stephen Boehrer and sisters, Jane Boehrer and Blanche Kobs. He is survived by his beloved wife, Mary "Pat" Boehrer to whom he was married for 59 years. He was the proud father of six children and 12 grandchildren.

Grandchildren Sarah, Katie, and Stephanie Clabeaux; Nicole, Karly and Kenneth Philip Valdez; Philip Crady; Gracie and Lily Beichler; and Austin Philip, Haley, and Adam Boehrer. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1951. He continued his studies there and in 1954 earned his Medical degree. He was a member of the Medical Honor Society, Alpha Omega Alpha as well as Phi Chi, his social fraternity. He met his wife in 1952 at the University of Wisconsin and they married in 1955. He took his internship and residency in the Army Medical Core earning his specialty in Obstetrics and Gynecology. He remained in the military for 10 years. He began his private practice in Sacramento in 1964 with partners John Connors and John Sullivan, retiring in 1991. Over the years, he was active in local Medical Groups, President of the OB/GYN society and an Associate Professor at UC Davis. In 1980, he went back into the Air Force Reserves and ultimately retired as a Full Colonel. His passions were his faith, his family and his home. He was a devout Catholic and practiced his faith on a daily basis, with prayer and in his dealings with his family and friends. He was active in the church with his wife, Pat, and together they led Confirmation classes, RCIA and Evenings for the Engaged groups for many years. He also regularly volunteered as a Eucharistic Minister. He loved his family and was an extraordinary husband, father and grandfather. At home, he could design and fix anything around the house and yard, a true Jack-of-all-Trades. He enjoyed travel most of his life. He started with European travel during the 4 years he was stationed in Vicenza, Italy as Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology back in 1959. More recently, he enjoyed traveling yearly to Hawaii and to destinations in California. He will be remembered as a thoughtful, kind and gentle man, with a wry sense of humor and an easy smile. He was the ultimate caregiver in his professional and personal life, always attentive to details and quietly getting the job done. Whatever work he did was always of excellent and meticulous quality and seemingly done without effort. He enjoyed his family and was generous with his time and talents, always a great resource and mentor to all.
