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.
His family will receive relatives and friends Saturday June 19th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. at the Mystic Funeral Home located on Route 1. Military Funeral Honors will follow at 1:00 pm at the funeral home. His burial will be private.

I first met George in 1972 when I was hired, as his Secretary, at his office on Williams Road, New London, CT I was fresh out of Secretarial studies and only 19 years old. On Fridays, George would toss his keys on my desk and tell me to take his T Bird to do his banking for him. I always declined and took my very old Volvo instead! Subsequently, I worked for George at his rental/real estate office on Long Hill Road in Groton. There I got to know his daughter, Kim, who worked at the Groton office one summer. She was a delight. George "The Town Crier" was going places! Branching out everywhere but always thinking of his family. When I stopped working to raise my children, I saw George once while out with my little girl. He whistled and gave me one of his million dollar smiles! I've always hoped I would run into George again. I am glad life was good to him and that he had longevity on his side. Sending my sympathies and nest wishes to his beloved family.

Jon and I send our condolences to the family. George was one of the most important mentors in my life and someone who took a chance on a kid like me and taught me all he knew about real estate. He was an industry visionary who attained tremendous success. He was a kind and caring man with a twinkle in his eye and who always was there to lend an ear or provide advice when you needed it most. He made a tremendous contribution to the real estate industry and to the community. He will be missed dearly. Rest in peach my friend.

Ken, Mary and Family, I am really sad to hear of George's passing. I learned a great deal from him and I miss speaking with him about any number of subjects while we stood down at his pool in Stonington. He always treated me well and I respected him for not only his success but for being an honest and sincere man.
