Mr. Norman Harold Boger, Jr., 72, of N. Myrtle Beach, S.C., formerly of Mocksville, died Tuesday, May 23, 2023.

He was born July 23, 1950, in Rowan County. Norman graduated from Davie High School, class of ’68, and had attended Davidson Community College. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves. In 2012, after 41 years, he retired as co-owner of Horn Oil Co. Norman was a member of First United Methodist Church in Mocksville. Norman was an avid outdoorsman. He loved fishing, hunting, and organized his own game preserve.  Throughout his years on the farm, he raised cattle and horses.  Time on the farm was also spent enjoying the friendships with those who shared his love of the outdoors. Family vacation time was spent at the beach, which they loved so much, they decided to retire there.  Norman especially enjoyed time with his buddy and light of his life, his daughter Kelly. He enjoyed her tagging along with him around the farm and at Horn Oil riding in the oil truck. After moving to the beach, they spent countless hours shelling on the beach. Norman was a very generous man and would give whatever he could to help someone else.

He was preceded in death by his father, Norman Harold Boger Sr.

Survivors include: his mother, Ann Boger Cranford; his loving and devoted wife of 51 years, Kathy Canupp Boger; daughter, Kelly Boger Smith (Eric); a sister, Sandra Hall (Lewis); and niece, Lori.

A memorial service will be conducted at 2 p.m., Saturday, June 3 at First United Methodist Church with Rev. Wes Sink officiating. The service will be available to view on the funeral home website. The family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the service.

The family is very grateful for special nieces, who were loving and supportive through the difficult days to the end, Deree, Jennifer, Summer, Lindsey & Abbey.
