  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family. I play with the softball team ‘Crusaders’ and enjoyed the testimony that he lived and left behind. He was an inspiration to me and our team.

  4. I was blessed to have played softball with Ken on the NABC team for a few years. Ken exemplified the Christian attitude on and off the field, but having been with him on the field more than off, I can say that his competitive spirit NEVER overshadowed his Christian spirit. Ken really loved his family, really cared for his kids. I could see in his son’s eyes that one day, he wanted to be like his daddy. I’ve heard many accounts of Ken sacrificing himself, both personally and financially, for the sake of others. Though it may be a sad time for friends and family, Ken, in his normal competitive spirit, has BEAT us to the prize!!

  11. My wife Theresa, my son Chris and myself would like to express our deepest heart felt sympathy to the family and friends of Kenneth Boggs. Chris and I coach and play for the Crusaders softball team and have enjoyed playing against Kenneth and the Sons of Thunder. Win or loose the attitude of Kenneth was always super. Chris talked to Kenneth many times and thought highly of him. It was such a shock to hear that he had went on to be with the Lord. It is so hard to give up a loved one, even though we know that they are with the Lord. Sometimes it’s hard to understand why things happen like they do, but God has a purpose. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  15. We were certainly shockd to lesrn of Ken’s passing. We fondly remember when, a couple of years ago, Ken and his workers painted our house and the great job they did for is. We are praying that the Lord will be especially close to the family at this time.

  16. Ken Boggs was a prince among men. Having met him through our business, it was not long before Ken was woven into the fabric of our lives. When our son was sick, Ken stayed in prayer for him and never failed to ask us how he was progressing. His care for our whole family was genuine and touching. Ken worked at our house fairly frequently. He and Ronnie were my favorite people to have here. They were always so sweet to my kids and so open to sharing their envouragement in Christ with me. One of my last memories of Ken is watching him in my kitchen, tickling and flipping my children, much to their glee. I will miss his smile and look forward to meeting him again in glory.

  17. Teresa, Kenny, & Didi,
    Words will never express how sorry we were to hear of Ken’s home going. I know that he is having a glorious time exploring his new home! We are the ones who are sad. Always remember to ‘Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.’ Prov. 3: 5&6
    We love you and you will be in our prayers.
    Jim, Debi, Jamie, & Alicia

  19. Teresa,Kenny,Dedi and entire Boggs Family, I have an empty spot in my heart right now. I can’t express the love I have for Ken. I can’t express what an impact he has had on my life. When I joined the ‘Sons of Thunder’ I was lukewarm in my walk at best. Ken showed me you could look a man in the eye and tell him you love him. The bond we share as a team was exemplified in his actions and words. Ken was the first to say I love you, the first to bring up a prayer request, the first to ask for an update on someone. Thank you Lord Jesus for letting me see you through Ken Boggs. I love you KB. Chris Henderson & Family

  20. I grew up with Kenny in West Asheville and we played little league together. I last seen Kenny a couple of years ago at Dolly Wood,he was there with his church. He and I are the same age, too young to go. But he left in peace. You will be missed. God Bless
