Born on June 20, 1939 in Port Royal, he is the son of the late Edwin and Myrna (Book) Boyer.

On Jan. 31, 1959, he married his late wife, Beatrice E. (Wagner) Boyer, with whom he was blessed to share over 50 years of marriage before her passing on Oct. 4, 2009.

In addition to his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by one son, Jon C. Boyer; one brother; and one sister making him the last of his generation.

Jonathan was a 1957 graduate of Tuscarora Valley High School, Port Royal and was employed and retired as a Line Foreman with Sanyo (formerly Fisher Electronics).
