Condolence: Wonderful man who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. A caring and supportive Dad to my great niece Lydia. Always a kind word and a beautiful smile. His kindheartedness will never be forgotten.

Condolence From: Trudy Stine
Condolence: What a wonderful man and friend! I worked with Boots, never heard anything negative about him and never heard him say a negative word about anyone. He would visit my husband Chuck's garage and want something fixed, in turn Chuck would borrow his Kubota when he needed it. One day Kenny and Boots stopped by and Jimmy laughed and said, "Now this is different a black man with a white chauffer!" Heaven is getting a truly special person and I am sure Chuck is there to greet him at the gate. You will be missed!

Condolence: So very sorry to hear of passing of my boyhood friend Boots.. it’s been so long ago but I have vivid memories of him and I getting into things in and out of school. He used to drive a Metropolitan Rambler and he would race me in my 51 Plymouth from the corner store to the bridge.. the good ole days.. he was a great friend with a compassionate heart.. I’m sure he will be missed by family.. Praying for you all.
