Richard S. Boyer
Richard S. Boyer was born in Murray, Utah and raised in Iowa. Richard graduated from Van Buren High School in Keosauqua, Iowa.
It was during a visit to a friend's house that Richard met his future wife, Charlotte Cutler. They were from rival high schools but they still became high school sweethearts. One of Richard's fondest memories was the day he married Charlotte in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. Richard and Charlotte are the parents of five daughters and one son, Todd, who now owns Southern Utah Mortuary with his business partner, Jim Graff.
To Richard, being a funeral director is a humbling service he can give during the challenging time in a family's life. Preparing and meeting the needs of families, to him, can be such a blessing. By doing so for so many years, Richard has been able to make countless good and lasting friendships.
Richard enjoys traveling, gardening, golf, fishing, hunting, being outdoors and riding horses. He also is heavily involved in scouting, where he serves on the Scouting Executive Board of the Utah National Parks Council and has also helped with new facilities for the further development of Camp Thunder Ridge in Iron County.
In any spare time, Richard, loves to spend time with his twenty grandchildren. He continues to fight any attempt at "retiring" and when working, usually continues to be the first one in the office.
