The Boggs Family.
Three happy little boys, beautiful mom and dad. Life had its rough spots, its belly laughs, tug of wars, sports, and God shared by all the Boggs. The boys, Jordan, Aaron, and Danny, grew into amazing men; loved, protected, guided, enjoyed, and shared by their parents, Rita & Joel. They are a connected family. A linked family.
Daniel McKenzie Boggs was born May 10, 1993 to Joel and Rita Boggs, the youngest of three sons. He passed away October 2nd, 2018 at the young age of 25.
Daniel’s heart and passion in life was to serve those around him. He was so tender-hearted and in tune with the feelings of those around him that he made it his own personal mission to be there for other people. As he gave himself and poured into the lives of others he struggled deeply with the loss of his oldest brother and best friend, Jordan Boggs who was killed by a drunk driver on April 7th 2012 followed by the loss of his beloved mother, Rita Boggs to Pancreatic Cancer on October 17th, 2016.
With the highs and lows of life, from extreme excitement to extreme depression his struggle from addiction is what put an end to his life.
This loving family has suffered the loss of three of its precious family members within a very short span of six years. Many of you have expressed a desire to help defray travel, lodging, and associated expenses involved with the two memorial services both in Fairbanks, Alaska on October 13th and in Newberg, Oregon on October 27th. The Boggs family has worked tirelessly to remove every obstacle to pay off Jordan's estate and Rita mountainous medical bills. They have done that. Now The Boggs family needs our monetary wings to help them through this time of need.
