Tim Boyer

Timothy Richard “Tim” Boyer, 62, of Lexington, Kentucky, formerly of Madison died Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, at Providence Pine Meadows in Lexington.

He was born Sept. 8, 1956, in Evanston, Illinois, to Maurice W. Jr., and Dorothy Elizabeth Dunmore Boyer. He was raised in Elgin and Sycamore, Illinois, and graduated from Elgin Schools. He was an avid bowler and enjoyed Special Olympics events. He worked at Jewel-Osco Grocery Store in Elgin for several years until his family moved to Madison in 1994. While living in Elgin, he enjoyed volunteering at the hospital with his long-time friend, Rick Theobold. He then enjoyed working in customer service at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza in Madison. He enjoyed people and was very social, never meeting a stranger. He loved to go to Door County on the shores of Green Bay to the cabin built by his grandfather. Tim was a faithful member of Madison Presbyterian Church as long as his health permitted. After the death of his sister, Nancy, his health began to decline and he moved to Lexington to be close to his nephew. He enjoyed Chicago Cubs baseball, car races, mini golf, and playing cards. Patriotism was very important to him and he always was enthusiastic with the display of the flag.

He is survived by one cousin; two nieces; one nephew; and several great nieces and great nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Nancy Jean Boyer Strandmark, who died Dec. 30, 2016; and one aunt.
