Bryan Eugene Boyer, 63, a former resident of Mt. Vernon, passed away May 18, 2014, at San Antonio Community Hospital in Upland, Calif. He was surrounded by his loving family. Bryan was born in Hannibal, Mo., on Dec. 21, 1950, to Johnson Boyer and Ermel Kathryn (Smith) Boyer.

Bryan graduated from Mt. Vernon Township High School in 1968, and shortly after served in the U.S. Armed Forces from 1970-1972. In 1973, Bryan enrolled at Southern Illinois University where he majored in English for two years, making the Dean’s list both years in a row. In 1993, he worked for the Ontario International Airport in California as a police dispatcher. Bryan joined the California Highway Patrol in 1997, where he worked as a systems engineer and programmer until retirement in 2007. Bryan was also a member of the ‘Order of DeMolay Fraternal Organization’.

Bryan is survived by his son, Arthur (A.J.) Boyer, a philosophy student at the University of Texas, El Paso; daughter, Nicole (Nikki) Boyer, a pre-med student at the University of Massachusetts, Boston; and brothers and sisters, Burris Boyer (wife Elfriede), Burrell Boyer, Betty (Boyer) Tweedy (husband the late Bill), Kay (Boyer) DeMarah (husband George) and Vivian (Boyer) Serrato (husband Lupe).

He will be greatly missed by friends, family and all who knew him, including his loving German Shepard companion, “CHI”.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Marilyn (Boyer) Dillingham; his brother, George Robert Boyer; his paternal grandparents, George and Laura Boyer; and his maternal grandparents, Frank and Edith Smith.

Private graveside internment with full military honors will be held at the Oddfellows Cemetery in McLeansboro. Date is yet to be determined.
