He was the oldest son of seven children. He married the love of his life, Ruby Jean Saunders, on January 23, 1962. He was a boilermaker for Local 132 for 32 years. His hobbies included gardening vegetables, spending time with his family, listening to Bluegrass, watching and attending drag racing events, classic cars and mowing grass-to the point of his lawn looking like a golf course.

Grandchildren; Brandon Duckworth and Lauren Duckworth; brother, Robert Boles; sisters, Jewel Rabon and Betty Ann Boles; sisters-in-law Judy Boles and Ginger Boles; half sister-in-law Carol Ann Boley.
