Kelly Dale Boyers, 85, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family on the morning of September 13, 2023.

Mr. Boyers was born on March 7, 1938, at Coon Island, Neelyville MO to the late Ira and Clelah

(Loge) Boyers. He was raised in Poplar Bluff and was a 1956 graduate of Poplar Bluff High School.

In his earlier years, Kelly worked as a lineman for Lyndell Coleman, PB Municipal Utilities, and

approximately 25 years for Ameron Electric, until retirement. He made many friends along the way.

He continued working on his farm until his death. He enjoyed baling hay, raising cattle and horses, and caring for the land, however one of his greatest joys was having all his family with him whenever there were chores to do such as caring for the livestock, putting up hay for feed, riding horses, for working or pleasure, fixing fences and small chores around the barn. He wanted his children, grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren, including babies, present to teach them how to work. He enjoyed deer camp, meals and visiting with family and friends. Kelly never met a stranger.

He was preceded in death by Kate Hamilton; sister, Georgia (Jo) Casinger; sister, Alice Ellis; sister,
