Lifelong Alaskan John Clark Boyer passed away on Dec. 22, 2015, at the Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska. John succumbed to the ravages of a three-year battle with cancer. He was born 57 years ago, in Fairbanks, Alaska. John grew up in Anchorage, graduating from West High School in 1977. Wrestling was his passion in high school and he usually wrestled in the 98 pound-weight class. Following two years of college in Spokane, Wash., John returned home and entered the printing world going to work for Van Cleve Printing, which was owned by his uncle and grandfather. This started him on a printing career at PIP and Arctic Office Supply. For the last 24 years, he worked as the Duplication Supervisor with the State of Alaska Department of Transportation. He retired in December 2015. "Johnny" loved his work, his beloved Seahawks and white water rafting with his friends. His children - Ryan and Sara - meant the world to him and he adored his time with them at the family cabin on Blodgett Lake. He also cherished spending family time with his wife, Naomi "Nome," at the family island on Crooked Lake. He loved to work the land, buck wood and there was never a tree or structure too tall for him to climb, even when there wasn't a reason. The world was well served by his kind and gentle spirit. He was preceded in death by his father, Lane Boyer; stepfather, Frank Neeley; brother, Brad Boyer; and his first wife, Leena Boyer, all of Anchorage.
