On May 12, 1958, the world received a special gift, the most amazing man who loved and was loved, who cared deeply for his family and friends. Now Heaven has gained this great man back and he is being held by God’s loving arms and is in the presence of his forever love.

Bo was born at the Baptist Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. He traveled all over the country in his early childhood, ultimately becoming a long-time resident of Rankin County, Mississippi. He was a member of Flowood Baptist Church and attended Pinelake Church when he and his family moved to Brandon, Mississippi.
He spent his life serving and protecting community. He was proud of his military service. He served his country in the United States Marine Corp, enlisting when he was seventeen years old.

He also served with Brandon Police Department, Richland Police Department, Hudspeth Police Department, and UMMC Police Department. He retired in 2014 to spend more time with his family.
He was a very active dad, coaching his son’s baseball team and his daughter’s softball teams. Fishing was a relaxation, and he was teaching his grandchildren. He was an avid reader, countless books over the years. With many vacations, he was always the driver, even on long trips to our yearly Tahoe destination as he liked the “scenic” view. And it was beautiful. He loved spending time and cooking with family and friends. He loved playing with his grandsons and taking all the fun road trip adventures.
