John Fletcher Boylan, 86, died Friday, October 5, 2018 at Asbury Park in Newton, Kansas.

He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Eula (Brewer) Boylan; his daughter, Jana Leddy and husband Tony of Edmond, Ok.; daughter, Dana Kreie and husband Rod of Newton, Ks.; son, Kelly C. Boylan and wife Kelly D. of Wichita, Ks.; eight grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren; many past friends of Ulysses, Kansas, and many new friends of Newton Asbury Park.

Born February 27, 1932, and raised in rural Grant County, the son of Okel Harrison and Theresa (Johnson) Boylan, he was a lifelong resident of Grant County, Kansas, until moving to Asbury Park in 2014.

In his early years, John would help with all aspects of the family farm. After graduating from Grant County Rural High School in 1949, he briefly attended Hutchinson Community College until the death of his father, at which time he returned home to manage the farm.

On February 10, 1952, Eula Pauline Brewer of Moscow, Ks and John were united in marriage at the First United Methodist Church of Ulysses. John was a longtime member of this church where he served on many boards and committees, recently transferring membership to Trinity Heights United Methodist Church in Newton.

John and his wife, Eula, farmed for many years in eastern Grant County where in 1977 he was recognized for being a world leader in the production of pure DeKalb hybrid milo seed. He also served as School Board member for Red Rock School, USD 214 and served on the local hospital board. John also was an avid Rotarian and loved being involved in the fellowship and service provided by the Ulysses Rotary Club.

John had a passion for flying and built an ultra-light plane which has been donated to the Liberal Air Museum where it remains on display today.

John was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Patricia (Boylan) Borthwick.
Memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 13, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at First United Methodist Church in Ulysses, Kansas. Private inurnment will be at Ulysses Cemetery.
