The 79-year-old jurist carried a full case load and only Friday had spent the day in Springfield on the bench. He covered Sumner, Robertson and Montgomery counties. Gov. Lamar Alexander has the option of appointing an interim judge to fill Boyers' position until the 1982 elections. Should he choose not to appoint, the chief justice of the state Supreme Court could designate someone to fill in. Boyers had indicated he'd not seek another term and his son, Thomas Boyers IV, Gallatin city attorney, had been mentioned as a candidate to run for the position.

The Boyers family has been in Sumner County for at least six generations. His great-grandfather, R.M. Boyers, was a businessman who constructed and occupied a building where Parks Realty now is located. According to a marker erected a decade ago, the now-bricked log building was put up in 1814.
