After being honorably discharged, he took a job at United Stationers where he worked until retirement and was awarded employee of the month and several teamwork awards.
He was a member of the First Christian Church for about 15 years and after retirement, he worked as a custodian and a jack of all trades, helping in any and all capacities. He loved to read his bible and read it faithfully.
Most who knew Bo would say he was very devout, truthful, caring, strong in his beliefs, and genuine all the way around. He loved his family dearly and was very close and loving with them.
Bo was a wildly, avid Greenville High School Comets fan. He enjoyed going to the games and cheering his team. The family asks that those attending the services to please wear ‘Comets Color,’ which is blue and white, in his memory.
