Loren Carl Boline (85) passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family on October 22nd, 2023. Loren was born December 20th, 1937, on the family farm in Admire, KS to Margaret and Carl Boline. After several years the family moved to Kansas City, Missouri where he became an Eagle Scout and graduated from Central High School. He obtained his engineering degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia where he was ROTC as well as a Sigma Nu fraternity brother.
After fulfilling his military requirements with the US Army, Loren’s first job was as a civil engineer with Morrison-Knudsen. While he loved his roles with MK, Loren also had a passion for flying, so he chose to join the US Army Reserves where he became a flight instructor and rose to the rank of Captain. It was this experience that allowed him to get hired on at TWA, where he eventually flew interna]onally.
He is survived by his wife Sallyann Richerson and they shared a wonderful life in Gelnhausen, Germany and Horrue, Belgium before re]ring back in the Kansas City area. Loren had incredible diversity in his interests, being a vintner of German wine, a supporter of the arts and a history lover. He was a longtime member of Glenwood Park United Methodist Church in Independence, MO as well as the Sons of the American Revolu]on. He volunteered at St. Luke’s East hospital and was also a docent at the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library. But his true joy was spending me with others where his gracious nature and kind humor made everyone feel special. In addi]on to his wife, he is survived by his children, Ma`hew Boline (Melissa) and Mollie Mylar (Mark), Sallyann’s children Tim Jones (Diane), Gaby Greener (Jeff), Sarah Lafferty (Craig) and Dan Amerson (Debra), his brother Neil Boline, and 22 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. A Celebration of Life is planned for December 9th from 3:00p – 4:00p at The Meadows at John Knox Village, 1800 NW O’Brian Rd, Lees Summit, MO 64081 in the Metropolitan Community Center. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Kansas City Hospice.
