Boni enjoyed visiting and fellowship with his family and friends. He worked as a Service Technician at Robertson Rentals for almost seven years. Boni loved the outdoors — traveling, gardening, camping, and fishing (even when he came home empty handed). Boni was very kind, and willing to help anyone in need — his life especially shone when in service at his church. Boni will be dearly missed by his loving family and friends. The family wishes to sincerely thank everyone for attending this service and offering their support. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated, and will always be remembered.
