Garry Lee Boyer I, 59, Sheridan, passed away Friday evening, April 27, 2018 at Maple Park Village in Westfield.

Born June 16, 1958 in Lebanon, Ind., he was the son of the late LaVerne Glen Boyer and Shirley Ann (Keeley) Lewis.

He moved to Florida when he was about 12 years old, and would graduate from Northeast H.S. in St. Petersburg. For many years he farmed alongside his father, however, his entrepreneurial spirit kept pulling him in other directions. Mr. Boyer was one of those people who seemed to know a little bit about almost everything - just ask him. For many years he operated a wholesale greenhouse for florists and landscapers. He was kind of a social butterfly, and making wholesale deliveries gave him plenty of opportunities to visit with customers. Mr. Boyer also sold gently used merchandise and antiques out of the old Ben Franklin building in Sheridan.

He was a history buff and loved traveling to state parks.

Mr. Boyer loved his family and his friends very much, and that went double for his dogs. He was a loving and gentle man who loved to take in dogs that were in a bad situation and in need of a good home. Hungry, Buddy and Rocky were his favorite rescues.

Survivors include his son, Garry L. Boyer, II of Sheridan; two grandchildren, Brooklyn Lee Boyer and Madisyn Ann-Marie Jackson, both of Sheridan; his brother Michael (Cindy) Boyer of Harrison, Ark.; and by many step-siblings.

He was preceded in death by his parents; step-father, Jim Lewis;step-mother, Janie Adair Boyer; and step-sister-in-law, Doris Adair.

Services are scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, May 5, at Kercheval Funeral Home, 306 E. 10th St. in Sheridan. Burial will follow at Spencer Cemetery in Sheridan. Family and friends may pay their respects from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
