James F. Boyer Jr. Obituary
James F. Boyer Jr., 87, of Monroeville, passed away Friday, May 10, 2019. He was the beloved husband of 65 years to Patricia (Roley) Boyer; loving father of Diane (Knox), Cathy and Barbara (Riso); father-in-law of Lisa Everett; and doting grandfather of Tony Riso, Nicholas Riso, Zachary Riso, Sydney Boyer and Chelsea Boyer. He was born and raised in Monongahela. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1954 before being drafted into the Army, where he was eventually assigned to an Army engineering company. Upon honorable discharge in 1956, he returned to Pitt, where he earned his Master of Science and began his lengthy career as a geologist specializing in mine drainage. Gifted with a creative and curious mind, along with a natural athleticism and a generous spirit, he spent his years involved in and excelling in hobbies ranging from tennis and golf to landscaping to travel around the globe to inclusive neighborhood volleyball games, where he welcomed everyone regardless of age or skill. Deeply devoted to Crossroads Presbyterian Church, he ushered, planted flowers, decorated, provided accounting services, and rendered a truly terrifying performance as King Herod in the Journey to Bethlehem. He loved spending time with his family and his church family.
There will be visitation at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 25, 2019, at Crossroads Presbyterian Church, 2310 Haymaker Road, Monroeville, PA 15146, followed by a memorial service at 11 a.m. Arrangements are entrusted to GENE H. CORL INC. FUNERAL CHAPEL AND CREMATION SERVICES OF MONROEVILLE.
Instead of flowers, donations to the American Diabetes Association at www.diabetes.org would be appreciated. www.corlfuneralchapel.com.
