Emma and Little BoI, just learned of your loss. I worked with your dad and think we started about the same time. I just wanted to tell you what a great guy he was.

Bo was a gentle giant. Always nice, helpful and gracious in business and personal dealings. The children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis are enjoying popcorn daily with Bo's help in us securing a popcorn popper for them. May God bless Bo and his family.

So Many great memories of our time together at my Gold Medal. My heart hurts for you, Little Bo ,Emma and the rest of the family. You always called me boss and I called you Big Daddy. You were such a treasure and gift in my life. Remember you cooking us steaks at trade shows and ironing my wrinkly clothes. Cause that's who you were . A thoughtful caring person. I could go on and on. But I miss you so much brother.. Love you

My thoughts and prayers go out to all friends and family of Bo. I know that I will miss his silly grin and kind soul. He was always so kind to me. Seemed so stern at 1st until I really got to know him. Thanks Bo for always lifting people up. Rest in Peace.

I remember all the times you made me laugh. You had that ability to make anyone smile with just a few words. Your character will live on in everyone's memories of you. Rest in Peace Bo. Your work here is done

As a fellow Marine, Bo and I became fast friends while in the Popcorn business. Such a graet guy. For 20 yrs., I made sure to bring him a Marine Corps Birthday challenge coin to the Gold Medal annual dealer mtg. in Cincinnati. His last yr. with Gold Medal he presented me with a leather Marine corps jacket! Itreasured it then and even mor now... Fair winds and following seas my friend.

Very sorry for your loss. I loved coaching with Bo. He always loved the kids he coached and was a great motivator. I will miss talking about the boys playing baseball. He had such a big heart. He loved talking about his kids so much!! He was so proud of his kids. He is a great guy who will be missed.
