A Mass of Christian burial for Dr. Walter C. Boyer, retired chief ports engineer for Greiner Engineering Sciences Inc. and a former chief engineer for the Maryland Port Authority, will be offered at 11 a.m. today at St. William of York Roman Catholic Church, Edmondson Avenue and Cooks Lane.
Dr. Boyer, who was 71, died Friday after a heart attack at his home in Hunting Ridge.
He retired from what is now Greiner Inc. in 1985 but continued to
serve as a consultant. He had been in charge of planning port projects and others related to it, including bridges. His career with the engineering company began in 1955 as a senior design engineer specializing in port structures.
From 1957 until he returned to Greiner, he worked at the port authority, the forerunner of the Maryland Port Administration, handling such projects as the Dundalk, North Locust Point and Hawkins Point marine terminals and projects in Crisfield and Cambridge.
