Home News Obituary: Mylan “Mike” Boysen flooring inspector; longtime CFI member

GARDEN CITY, MO.—Mylan “Mike” Henry Boysen, a well respected International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association (CFI) installation inspector, passed away Sept. 11 at his home following a brief battle with lung cancer. He was 69.

Born Feb. 5, 1941 in Tilden, Neb., Boysen owned and operated Mike’s Floor Covering Inspections in Garden City, Mo., until his retirement in June 2010.

“Mike was a great supporter of CFI and attended several courses for the inspector,” said Jim Walker, CEO of CFI. “He was affiliated with NICFI, AFS and FCITS as an inspector. Mike always wanted to know the latest information regarding flooring. He attended one of the first CFI installations for the Inspector courses and was an active member until his death.

“Mike was a very conscientious person,” Walker added, “who was always seeking to provide accurate information. He will be missed.”

Besides his parents, Boysen was preceded in death by a grandson, Stephen Knifong, and a brother, Stephen Boysen.

Boysen is survived by his wife, Phyllis; two sons, Donald Sims Jr. and Anthony Boysen; five daughters, Penny Barton, Sheri Adams, Marlene Johosky, Susan Sims and Carrie Bell; 21 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and a sister.
