RICHARD BOONE SR.
Richard Boone Sr., 58, of Coeburn, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 with family by his side.
Richard Boone Sr. was in the military and a coal truck driver before an injury rendered him disabled. He enjoyed building model cars, mostly 18-wheelers, and going to model car shows with his best friend, Jeff. He loved spending time with his family, friends, and most importantly his adored grandchildren. He was a loving and protective husband and a supportive and encouraging Father. His grandchildren were the light of his life. He never met a stranger. He loved making people laugh and telling you his opinion whether you wanted to hear it or not. He enjoyed being outdoors; fishing and sitting by the pool. His favorite activity was playing with his grandchildren in the pool and taking them for a ride on the lawnmower.
He is preceded in death by his parents, James (Bud) Boone and Dorothy Bryant Boone; sister Delana Davidson, brothers Harry Boone, and Tommy Boone.
Left to Cherish his memories are his wife of 38 years, Phyllis Boone; daughter, Chrissiana Trent and son-in-law, Matthew Trent; sons, Cody Boone and daughter-in-law, Ashley Boone; Richard Boone and fiancee, Jessika Moore; and Jason Boone. Adopted daughter, Megan Jewell and husband, Travis Jewell. He also leaves several beloved grandchildren; Brayden, Parker, Landon, Isabella, Alyonna, Charleigh, Jaxon, Nicholas, and Elijah. Several nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
