Keith of Beckley, WV, James Boggess of Louisiana, Joshua Boggess of North Carolina, and Kaitlyn Boggess of North Carolina; many grandchildren; extended family and friends who will miss him dearly.
Joe spent nearly 15 years of his life underground as a coal miner and was a mechanic most of his life. He was a master and genius at fixing anything and had a passion for his 1946 Ford. He was an outdoors man who enjoyed camping, riding his four-wheeler, and most importantly, spending time with his friends and family.
