George Kenneth Boyer, 90, of Stonington CT, passed away peacefully on June 9, 2021, with family by his side at The Cottage at the Elms in Westerly, RI where he had resided since 2018.
George was born on January 18, 1931 in Wallington, NJ to the late George Gabriel Boyer and the late Theresa Derzsak Boyer. He was predeceased by his sister Jean. George proudly served in the US Coast Guard. While stationed in Groton at Avery Point, he fell in love with the shoreline of southeastern Connecticut, to which he returned to make his home and begin a long successful career in real estate. His first office of The Boyer Agency opened in Mystic. George grew the company to include twenty nine offices and divisions including residential, investment, commercial, property management, mortgage brokerage, corporate relocation and insurance.
George had been affiliated with the National Institute of Real Estate Brokers, the National and Connecticut Association of Real Estate Boards, New London Board of Realtors and a former member of the Groton Kiwanis.
George touched the lives of many with his eternal optimism, generous heart, his fun-loving sense of humor, laughter, winks and smiles. He was deeply loved and will be forever missed by family and all those who hold him dear to their heart. George loved spending time in New York City to catch dinner and a show, traveling abroad, walks on Watch Hill beach, and being with his family. The family is forever grateful to the loving staff at The Cottage who provided excellent care in the last few years of George's life, and gave the family peace of mind knowing he was well cared for.
George is survived by his wife Mary Boyer of Stonington, four children from his first marriage, Sandra Boyer and spouse Daniel Bligh of the UK, Kim Mortensen and husband Bill of Pawcatuck, Kathryn Keller and husband Attila of Stonington, and Kenneth Boyer of Stonington. He also leaves behind his stepchildren, Lara Otte and husband David of Seattle, WA, Peter Guille of Jupiter, FL, Constance Guille and husband Luca Paoletti of Charleston, SC and loving grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
