Our loving Pappy, Mr. Michael Louis Boger, 68, of Farmington passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2022.
He was born on Jan. 26, 1954 in Iredell County to the late Spencer Boger and Olga Smith Boger. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by: his wife, Mary Phillips Boger; and his brother, William David Boger.
Surviving are: his daughter, Brandi (Elton) Doub; his son, Seth Phillips; 8 grandchildren; 3 precious great-granddaughters, Aivley, Cesley, and Willow; sisters, Sandra (Jimmy) Gaither, Mary Ann (the late George) Stevens; sister-in-law, Midge (the late David) Boger; nieces, Stephanie Brawley, Shelia (Tim) Moose, Patricia Hernandez, Janet (Kevin) Hope, and a nephew, Charlie Boger.
In the beginning, our Pappy loved spending time at his Aunt Mae’s house playing with his very special cousins, The Goforth Family. He was a graduate of Davie County High School Class of 1972. Our Pappy had a love for John Deere Tractors, playing banjo, and listening to country music. He loved to visit the beach and enjoyed road trips to the mountains of Cana, Va. where he would visit his favorite produce stand for apple cider, molasses, and orange slices. He also loved riding his motorcycle with his best friend, the late Paul Whitaker. Special memories were made with Paul and his brother David as they would play cards and chew tobacco into early hours of the morning. Our Pappy also enjoyed fishing on the Kure Beach Pier.
The last five years of his life, Pappy spent with his granddaughters, Bella and Molly, playing Barbies and getting his nails and toes painted while he slept. During his cat naps, they loved surprising him with drawings on his bald head.
Our Pappy brought so much love and joy into so many hearts. He was loved by so many. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Atrium Health, Respiratory Care ICU unit for their loving and compassionate care they provided for our Pappy.
