Boozie never met a stranger and even though he had a big family his group of "Ole Pal's" and his "Ole Buddies" reaches far and wide. Most all of his Pal's thought he was called Boozie because he "liked to throw back a few" but that is not the case. The truth is in 3rd grade a substitute teacher mispronounced his last name and called him Mr. Boozie, That was it, his Fontanet school Buddies started calling him that and it lasted a lifetime. We are going to miss his laughs, his stories and his pranks as well as the gifts he made and gave so freely. At the end he was very sick and his family would like to thank Bobby Miller for staying with him and taking care of him so he could be at home. And Missy...Booze said that your veterinarian skills came in handy while helping with his wound care! Lol Thank You! Boozie will have a graveside service at 1:00p.m. on Monday, April 9, 2018 at Adkins Cemetery at 9501 N. Baldwin Ave. in Fontainet, In. Bill Herb will be officiating. Following the service we will have a Celebration of Life at the FACT building in downtown Fontanet. Please come join his family with your stories and laughs. There will be lot's of good food, family and friends. Most important of all is that Steve had said the sinners prayer and gave his heart to the Lord after calling for the Chaplin this past weekend again. It wasn't the first time but Thank you Jesus it was the last and most important business that he took care of on his own.  2nd Timothy 4:7   " I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith"
