  4. I’d like to extend my deepest sympathy to the Boyer family. I first met Jeff when his family moved to Beaverdale & riding the school bus. The last time I saw Jeff was when he & his wife Julie attended our 25th high school class reunion. There’s a photo of him on our class FB page under the 25th reunion album. Rest easy Jeff.
