Boyer, Donald

Donald Boyer

July 13, 1937 - April 19, 2016

Donald Boyer was born 7/13/1937 to Lloyd and Vera Boyer in Pilot Point, TX.  He died of cancer on 04/19/2016 in Royse City, TX with his two daughters holding his hands.

Donald is preceded in death by his parents, the love of his life, wife Darlene in 2003, his sister Bobbie Westbrook, twin brother Ron Boyer, sister Dorothy Cox and half-brother Gary Boyer.

He is survived by his sister, Joyce Wagoner, daughters Debbie Wrenn, Jan Mowery (Mitch), the apple of his eye granddaughter Monica Weaver (Ricky) and great grandchildren Lexi and Bubba Weaver, and foster son Allan Wilks (Cindy).  He is also survived by step-granddaughter, Christina Mowery Vickers (Clay) and their 5 children.  And numerous nephews and nieces who loved him dearly.

Don was a long distance driver for United Parcel Service (UPS).  He retired early in 1999 to lovingly take care of his wife Darlene until her death in 2003. His favorite hobby was fishing.  Even though he never caught the “mother lode” of fish and most of his fishing stories were of the “big one that got away” he enjoyed the peace and relaxation of being on the lake.

Family visitation will be Saturday April 23, 2016 11:00 – 1:00 at Turrentine- Jackson-Morrow Funeral home in Allen, TX. Graveside service and burial will follow at 2:00 at Cottage Hill Cemetery in Celina, TX.

Grandpa Don you will be missed. I have fond memories of my youth coming over and spending time. I only wished in later years to not have lost touch with you. I love you and will add you to our families prayers. I share the Boyer family good looks and am reminded of you when I look in the mirror. Bye. John Boyer, June 18, 2017 I was very sorry to learn of my father's death over 1 year after he died. It appears that neither myself nor my brothers Donald or Joseph knew about Dad's death. May my father's soul rest in peace in heaven. Vincent Lee Boyer, Sr, June 18, 2017 May God comfort the Boyer family during this time of bereavement. Mr. Don was an awesome neighbor. He will be missed. Kira Walker
Kira Walker, April 26, 2016 Uncle Don is one of my favorite people of all time. While we did not see each other often, every 6 or 7 years, each visit was a great time. He was always generous and upbeat. I will miss him dearly and cherish the best of memories. Love you all.
Floyd Boyer, April 26, 2016 Hope you and our family is doing good in this time of grief. Give me a call if you need to talk.
Linda chapman, April 24, 2016 Our sincerest condolence to all of the Boyer's family. He was a great neighbor and even better friend to everyone.
Leonard & Ana Henderson , April 22, 2016 My deepest sympathies on Don's passing. I will miss him and I will be praying for y'all.
Eric Mowery, April 22, 2016 I wish to convey my condolences to Don's family. It was sad to hear of his passing. I didn't know Don real well, but always enjoyed visiting with him at periodic family get-togethers. We could reminisce about a few things about when he worked for Western Electric at one time, as well as various other subjects. He will be fondly remembered.
Marquis McRay, April 21, 2016 Miss you granddaddy. Ricky and the kids and I love you so much. Give grandma a big hug from all of us. Tell her we love and miss her too.
Monica, April 21, 2016 Gone but not forgotten. .The Lord is my shepherd. .
