Retiree Service:

The Firefighters Funeral Team is assisting Creve Coeur Fire Protection
District, providing honor to retired Captain James Boyer.


James Lee "Jim" Boyer, Sr. of Winfield, Missouri, passed away at the age of
81 on Sunday, June 28, 2020.  He was preceded in death by his parents,
Theodore and Madeline Boyer; and his brother, Robert (Bette) Boyer.

Jim is survived by his beloved wife, Shirley Jean Boyer; his children, James
(Laura Overmann) Boyer Jr. and Pam (Tony) Fallert; his grandchildren, Kelly
Fallert, Christopher Fallert; and step grandson, Brennan Overmann

Jim was a dedicated firefighter and retired as Captain of Creve Coeur Fire
District.  He served the community for more than 25 years and valued the
friendships he made during that time.  He was also a long-standing member of
the Winfield Lions Club in his younger years.

Jim grew up in University City.  After graduating from Mercy High School,
his parents owned a resort on the Mississippi River in Winfield, Missouri.
It was there that he met his wife, Shirley.  He enjoyed boating, being on
the water, and always looked forward to his trips to the Lake of the Ozarks.
He and his wife had great times on their river trips which sent them to
Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Minnesota, and all along the Mississippi.
His passion for boating and being on the river led Jim to join the Lewis &
Clark Expedition Reenactment Commission, where he also volunteered as a
shipwright building the boats.

Jim became a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and enjoyed watching their games
with Shirley.  He was very much a handyman and particularly enjoyed
woodworking projects.  He and his brother even built their own boat together
when they were younger.  Jim was dearly loved and will missed by all who
knew him.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Jim's name to
<https://icomparish.org/> Immaculate Conception Catholic Church of Old
Monroe General Fund or  <https://www.dementiasociety.org/> Dementia Society
of America.
