Don Roddy Boggus
Don Roddy Boggus, 78, departed this earth to the comfort of Jesus his savior on September 19, 2017, at home surrounded by family after a lengthy illness. He was the husband of Mary Lou Boggus of Wilson, Texas. They shared 57 years of treasured marriage.
Born in Fort Worth, Texas on November 11, 1938, he was the son of Louise Easter Bills and Bert Roddy Boggus. He attended Lubbock High School and graduated from Texas Tech University. He worked as a CPA for many years in Corpus Christi and most recently in Houston.
He was a member of Second Baptist Church in Houston were he had served as a deacon. Due to recent physical limitations he had enjoyed attending nearby Sugar Creek Baptist Church. He was also a member of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants and Antique Automobile Club of America-Gulf Coast Chapter.

Gospel music, laughing with friends and watching old westerns were some of his favorite pastimes. Known as the “sound man” and the one non-singer of the family, he loved music and operated the sound equipment with precision.
