Tombstone Tuesday – June 23, 2020 – Glenn H Boyer

Glenn Harold Boyer was the son of Glenn H and Elizabeth M. (Klier) Boyer. He was born in Genesee County, Michigan on June 26. 1922.

This photo is of Lester Losee, Florence Losee, Mary Florence Boyer holding Glenn H Jr, Glenn H Sr. and Elizabeth Boyer. I do not know who the woman is standing behind Mary Florence. This was taken in the summer of 1922.

Glenn and Elizabeth had four sons; Glenn H. (1922), Kenneth C. (1924), Ralph W. (1928), Keith H.(1930). In the 1930 Federal Census the family was found in Flint Michigan, living at 422 Grace Lawn Ave. Glenn Boyer Sr. was a machinist for the Auto Industry. Glenn Sr was a veteran who served in World War I.

In the 1940 Federal Census, Glenn Jr. remains at home with his parents and brothers. He is in his last year of high school. They also have a nephew, Walter Klier, living with them. Glenn register for the Draft for WWII on June 30, 1942 in Flint ,Michigan. He was an employee at the Schipicasse Store at that time. Glenn enlisted into the Navy a little over a year later, on August 14, 1943. He served for over two and a half years being discharged on April 21, 1946.

Glenn appears on a inbound passenger list from the SS Evangeline on August 12, 1948. It was a cruise from New York to the Bermuda and Nassau occurred from August 4th to August 12th. He reported that his address was 135 Caracas Ave, Hersey, Pennsylvaina.

Glenn married Jane M Holden in 1949 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvaina. They had three daughter ; Gail, Shirley, Darlene.

I wish I had more information about Glenn’s life but since it is so recent the information is just not available with out direct contact with his family. Hopefully one day we can reconnect.

Glenn died ten years ago today. He is buried in the Brigadier General William C Doyle Memorial Cemetery in Arneytown, Burlington County, New Jersey.

Rest in peace, Glenn!

Love, Jan

Glenn is my first cousin 2 times removed. I think that I had contact with his daughter Darlene really early in my research. I think it was her husband who was doing the research?? I cant remember. I have lost touch with them.
