Donald Louis Boggs was born on April 6, 1928, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to Willard and Alice Boggs. Donald went to be with the Lord on September 6, 2017. He was christened at St. Lukes Methodist Church in Oklahoma City, and as an adult became an active member of the church.

Donald went on to serve our country for two years in the U.S. Navy near the close of World War II. He was based at multiple stations and was honorably discharged on April 16, 1948. Donald attended Oklahoma A&M College in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration at Oklahoma City University in 1951. During his college years, he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Sigma Theta Epsilon fraternities.

He married the love of his life, Margaret Ann Rollans, in 1954, and they took up residence in Oklahoma City where they began their family. Donald was blessed with three sons: James, Thomas, and Robert. Throughout his career, Donald excelled in every position he held, which prepared him for a successful business partnership with his cousin Ken in 1970. Donald and Margaret celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2004 in the company of their children and grandchildren.

Over the years, Donald and Margaret were very much involved in their church, scouting, camping, Lions Club, US Power Squadron, and High School Alumni Organizations. Donald especially loved square dancing. He went on to retire in 1995 and dedicated himself to his hobbies and other interests.

Donald leaves behind his sister, his lovely wife, Margaret, his three sons and their wives, nine grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren.

Donald's accomplished life was an inspiration to many and he will be missed by all.

Love you Dad!
