Lloyd Douglas Boughton
Lloyd Douglas Boughton, 57, of rural Leland, IL died Thursday, March 27, 2003 while vacationing in Pharr, Tx.
Born November 5, 1945 in Hinsdale, IL, Doug was the son of Walter Petters Boughton, Sr. and Elvera Meadors Boughton.
Doug was raised in Wheatland Township, IL and graduated from Naperville Central High School. A dedicated American, Doug served his country during the Vietnam War. Upon his return, he moved a bit further West, near Waterman, Illinois to expand the farming operation he shared with his father. A strong man with a deep love of the land, Doug always quietly took care of all those around him and has passed on his love of farming and travel. His passion for going to the mountains will be proudly carried on by his friends and family.
Doug is survived by his wife of 28 years, Jeanetta Johnson Boughton of Leland; his children, Paulive (Michael) Wilson of Chicago, Butch (Amy) Overby of Waterman, Mark (Kathy) Overby of DeKalb, Dawn (Michael) Girka of Streator and Lynn (Jay) Springer of Leland; his grandchildren, Tyler and Danielle Overby, Madalyn, Lindsay and Megan Overby, John and Jaia Girka; his sister, Barbara Hollifield of River Ridge, Louisiana; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and many dear friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Walter Boughton, Jr.
Funeral Services for Mr. Boughton will be held at 10 AM on Tuesday, April 1, 2003 at the Waterman Presbyterian Church at the corner of Cedar and Garfield Streets in Waterman, Illinois with Pastor Roger Boekenhauer officiating. Interment will be held in the North Clinton Cemetery, Waterman, Illinois.

Friends may call from 4 to 9 PM on Monday, March 31, 2003 at the Waterman Presbyterian Church, Waterman, IL.
