Quinton Boyett

He spent a lifetime of service for his farm, his community and his church.
Mr. Boyett was a keen, streamlined farmer and abundantly produced beef cattle, soybeans, wheat and corn. He had an infinite passion to finish every project he started as a farmer. He enjoyed having company with many and always regaled others with memories of his childhood, as he continued his father’s legacy as a farm owner.
He worked the land all his life and held his fellow agriculturalists in the highest regard.
He was substantially active as a member of Union City Cumberland Presbyterian Church, as well as many years with Kenton Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He was charitable with the Kenton School System and was always certain to finish any business plan that was proposed.
Mr. Boyett was born July 20, 1924, in Rutherford to the late Walter Lee and Zeta (Montgomery) Boyett.
