Richard was born on November 9, 1928 to Joseph and Edith (Mayse) Boyer in Medford, Oklahoma and passed from this life on January 28, 2018 at Integris Bass Hospital in Enid, Oklahoma. Richard graduated from Medford public schools in 1947. On March 1, 1951 Richard was inducted in to the United States Army.

Richard loved to keep his yard and churches yard “manicured” at all times. He loved to go up to Margies and have a “coke” with friends in the afternoon. Most every evening, Richard and Deloris would go up to Margies to eat supper with friends and enjoy a friendly atmosphere.
