Kenneth “Ken” I. Boyer, age 91 of Clintonville, passed away Friday, February 1, 2019 at the ThedaCare Medical Center in Shawano.
Ken was born on September 20, 1927 on the home farm in the Town of Larrabee as the son of the late Lothar and Esther (Krueger) Boyer. He graduated from Clintonville High School in 1945 and continued working on his family’s farm. Ken was united in marriage to Irene Glocke on October 19, 1958 at the St. Martin Lutheran Church in Clintonville. Ken was active as a member of St. Martin and rarely missed a Sunday. He served as an Usher for many years and was also a past member of the Board of Elders. Ken and Irene enjoyed dancing and were members of the Jolly Mixers Dance Club.
