David Edwin Boyer, age 68 of Nixa MO passed away Thursday, January 21, 2021. David was born to Dale E Boyer and Delores A (Menendez) Boyer in St. Louis MO on February 20, 1952. He grew up in Overland MO until 1967 when his family moved to Springfield MO. He attended and graduated from Glendale High School and later attended Southwest Missouri State (now MSU).
As a child David had a love of cars. At an early age he could name the make, model and engine size of every car he saw. As an adolescent he turned his interest in cars to a hobby of assembling model cars. As an adult he turned his love of assembling cars into his passion of restoring Classic Cars including his favorite, Corvettes. He was still restoring Classic Cars up to the time he passed.
In early 1994, through his love of cars, he met Debbie Herndon and they soon began their 27- year journey through life together.
Shortly after high school, David followed his interest in Data Telecommunications into a career path and continued working in the field right up to the time of his passing. As technology evolved so did David. He has owned and operated numerous businesses in the field since the early 1990s. Currently he was the owner of TCS Fibers LLC, a data cabling business.
David enjoyed spending his leisure time on his pontoon boat on Table Rock Lake with family and friends and his special four-legged buddy, Brazen.
