Raydean Boggs, son of Eugene and Mabel (Morgan) Boggs was born June 8, 1934, at home in Weldon with an MD in attendance. Their home was in the rural area of Clarke County. Raydean passed away July 23, 2014, doing what he liked to do; farming his ground.
Raydean attended and graduated from the LeRoy School in 1951. He joined the National Guard and also worked hauling livestock for people and farming. Later he worked for the Humeston Livestock Auction and continued until he was 80 years old, when the Lord called him home.
He lived all his life on the farm in Weldon where he was born and raised. Early on he raised hogs and then later focused on registered Angus cow/calf herds. Raydean dedicated some of his earlier years to the National Guard in Chariton. One of his other passions was 4-H and the participation of himself and through some of his chosen young people at the Wayne County Fair.
His parents and only brother, Russell, preceded him in death.
Nieces, nephews and many friends survive Raydean.
There will be a celebration of life held at the Humeston Sale Barn on Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. with all those members of family and friends wishing to attend can gather to share stories and tales of Raydean’s life.
