George Boynton, March 11, 2010 – from Donna deManby Boynton SMC 68

(Also, see photos Donna sent of George with grandchildren and with Donna and Tom Schetter.)
Since my husband George Boynton (known by his stepfather's last name at college as George Anderson) loved Notre Dame so much, I thought I would write. Our daughter Jenny ND' 93 married Mario Borelli ND'93, the son of Professors Dr. Mario Borelli and Angela Borelli. As you can see we had quite a connection to the University and made many trips back. George retired early as an assistant vice-president of Odyssey Reinsurance. Unfortunately he developed cancer 5 months later and died on March 11, 2010. ND friends are forever. His roommate, Bill Phippard, a lawyer in San Diego, flew all the way from California to Connecticut for the funeral. Other ND roommates Denny Simon, a lawyer from Wisconsin, and Tom Hudson, a CEO and owner of a computer technology company in Minnesota, sent their condolences.
Tom Schetter, fellow band mate from Ohio, will be making a memorial visit this summer. An award in George's name (the George F. Boynton Award) is being set up at Notre Dame for a senior band student to be given out yearly. Notre Dame lost one of its prized sons far too early.
