Christopher Lee Boyer was born May 25, 1979, in Neillsville, the son of David and Barbara (Bird) Boyer. He attended and graduated from Neillsville High School in 1997. Chris then went on to the technical college in Eau Claire and graduated with a degree in criminal science. After taking the summer off, he attended the Correctional Academy in Green Bay, and after graduating took his first job as a correctional officer at the RYOC facility in Racine. Chris later transferred to the Red Granite Correctional Facility east of Wautoma and for the past 312 years he has worked at the Stanley Correctional Facility while living in Thorp.

Chris "Sporty" had a passion for many things. He enjoyed 4-wheeling, ice fishing, deer hunting, bear hunting and the company of his friends. He most enjoyed riding his Harley with two trips to Sturgis, and numerous local trips with his friends and family. Chris was a fun-loving soul that could make anybody smile with his sense of humor.

He will be sadly missed by his parents, David and Barbara Boyer of Neillsville; one brother, Gary (Karen) Boyer of Auburndale; one niece, Mikayla Boyer; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He will be sadly missed by his very special friends, Ryan and Sonny Opelt, and Ryan (Tara) Schmidt.

Honorary casket bearers are his friends, Steve Johnson, Ryan Opelt, Ryan Schmidt, Eric "Kermit" Strey, Travis Erickson and Chad Oldham.

Gesche Funeral Home is assisting Chris's family with funeral arrangements.
