R. D.'s parents were Clark Alexander BOREN & Mary Willie ADAMS. R. D. is buried beside his mother, Mary Willie BOREN.
R. D. was fatally burned in a truck accident close to Burnett, Texas in 1941. It had been reported that the oilfield truck in which he was riding had a gasoline leak that had not been repaired by the company that owned it.
The truck caught fire while R.D. and the driver were on the highway in route to a job site. In the process of pulling off the highway, the driver lost control of the vehicle and it struck a tree at the side of the road and turned over. R. D. was thrown clear but sustained third degree burns over most of his body.
After a few hours in the hospital in Burnett, Texas, R. D. died on October 29, 1941 and was buried in Burkburnett, Texas on November 1, 1941.
Two other men, Henry Travis FULLER and Horace Arthur WOOD were also killed in the accident.
