Columbia -- A celebration of the life of Paul B. Boone, of 861 Gardendale Dr., will be held Monday at 11 a.m. at the First Baptist Church of Columbia, Boyce Chapel, with burial in Woodridge Memorial Park. Memorials may be made to Columbia International University, Student Tuition Fund or to First Baptist Church Missions Fund. Visitation will be Sunday 4-7 p.m. at Dunbar Funeral Home, Dutch Fork Chapel, Irmo.
Mr. Boone died Friday, June 20, 2003. Born in Muncie, Ind., he was a son of the late James J. and Ermal E. Boggs. He was first employed by Applied Physics Corporation in Pasadena, Calif. as a supervisor in the production of electronic testing equipment. In 1961, he moved to Columbia to attend Columbia International University. He was asked to join the staff as Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds and directed the media ministry.
In 1971, Mr. Boone started Southern Service Co., an electrical contracting company, which served the midlands area for more than 30 years before his retirement and illness in 2002. He was treasurer and charter member of the Electrical Contractors Association of the Midlands.
Mr. Boone was a former deacon and Sunday School teacher. He had been a member of First Baptist Church of Columbia for many years. He always subscribed to a principle in life which says "When it is in your power, do good to whom it is due." He was known for his kindness, his integrity and his incredible sense of humor.
Surviving are his wife of 42 years, Roberta "Bobbie" Boone; six children and their spouses, Michelle and Michael Myer of Durham, N.C., Jim Boone of Leesville, Cindi and Eric Federspiel of Columbia, Paul and Jill Boone of Greenville, Mark and Kathy Boone of Irmo, Jennifer and Steve Livingston of Lexington; sister, Susan F.
