He will be cremated at Sutton Memorial Funeral Home Crematory, per Carrol’s request. There will be no services.

He was the elected Sheriff of Pitkin County (Aspen), Colo., from 1966 to 1976. He was in law enforcement or security all of his life.

He worked in the Federal Courts for 10 years in Reno, Nev.

He was tired of the big city of Reno, so in 1999 he and his wife moved to Golden Valley, so he could retire. He just couldn’t do it, so he worked in security at the Superior Court in Kingman until he became too ill to work.

He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Carol L. Whitmire; daughter, Kathy Arndt of Oklahoma; sons, Lonnie, Kenny, and David Whitmire; and daughters, Joy Hale, Cheri Brown and Debi Upchurch, all of Colorado. He is also survived by 14 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; two brothers, Bill Matthews and Donald Matthews; two sisters, Donnia Myers and Elaine Satterfield all of Colorado; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Thomas D. “Bo” Boggio, 74, went to his Lord that he loved so much on Friday, March 24, 2006. He was born in Los Angeles on May 1, 1931.

Tom was a resident of Mohave County since 1968, where he retired from the Mohave County Sign Department. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, retiring after 17 years of serving his country.

Tom was a member and deacon of College Park Baptist Church, which he dearly loved. He had many brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ in his church families.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Helen Miller; and his sister, Pat.

Tom is survived by his wife of 25 years, Phyllis; his children, George Boggio, Michael Boggio, Rebecca Boggio, Larry Lyman, George Lyman, Gregory Lyman, Cheri Lyman and their families; as well as a stepsister, Joanne; sisters-in-law and brothers-in law, Royce and Amy Hatch, Willie and Sandy Hatch, Alvin Hatch, Calvin Hatch, Marie Bray and Gerlan Fugate; many grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces; nephews; and many friends.
