What made Boog such a vibrant person, was the fact that he was both 'interesting and interested,' as Boog's friend Jim said in a story he told at the memorial. He was interested in his family and friends, his tire business, playing the drums with his band, canoeing, building his family's log cabin, and many other activities.
He was also interested in people. In his obituary, my aunt Mary wrote, "He was never tedious in his advice, but felt a few things did matter quite a lot: always reach for the bill, always ask people questions about themselves, and always eat a little bit of everything offered, preferably of different colours."
