Albert R. Boysen
December 7, 1929 - July 12, 2014

Resident of Lakewood, California, Al was surrounded by family and prayer when God called him home on Saturday, July 12, 2014. Al was born in Omaha, Nebraska on December 7, 1929 to Albert and Frances (Cutler) Boysen and graduated from North High School in 1947. He married his high school sweetheart, Barbara, in 1949. Al and his wife moved to California in 1950. After he completed his service in the US Marine Corps during the Korean conflict, Al remained in California and pursued his career in banking. While working his way up to Vice President and Senior Loan Officer he joined the Optimist Club and the Rotary Club and contributed to the community through many charitable projects that benefited children and those in need. A member of the UCLA Alumni Association, Friend of the University, and a lifelong Bruins fan he recruited athletes first for UCLA track and field and later enthusiastically scouting talent for their football program. He was most proud to have worked under coaches Tommy Prothro, Ducky Drake and Dick Vermeil. A passionate golfer, he was a member of the Rio Hondo Men's Golf Club and proudly displayed his Dunlop Hole-In-One Trophy. He met three presidents in his lifetime, Harry Truman in 1948 at the dedication of the Memorial Park in Omaha; he met Richard Nixon at a book signing after his presidency, and Ronald Reagan both as governor and president while attending various fundraisers. Al was loved by many and valued by all. He leaves behind not just his accomplishments but his experiences and his wisdom which we all will miss.
