My heart aches ... a lifetime family friend starting back when our parents were friends. Bo was more like a family member a "cousin" versus a friend. I will miss him. RIP Bo ... may your memory be eternal!!

When I was a young boy my parents were good friends with  Bo's parents in the Delco Greek community. As we grew up our lives took different paths but we managed to stay in touch on a few occasions.   I always enjoyed his company and I was always glad to see him at the UDHS class reunions. I was grieved yesterday  to learn that Deacon "Bo" passed away last Friday.  However, I'm glad to know that he has gone to be with his Lord in heaven. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends, class mates and the Church community.

I can only ever remember Bo with a smile on his face.

He was always nice, kind and fun.

My condolences to Bo's family and close friends.

Yesterday we said our final goodbyes to Bo.  His celebration of life was beautiful and emotional.  I knew Bo from kingergarten straight through our12 years of school.  My last conversation with him just 7 weeks ago at a wedding receiption.  He was the same great guy that we all knew 50 years ago..

Several classmates attended his service,  We were instructed that if going to the gravesite, to go to our cars to join the procession.  We pulled up at the gravesite and were told to begin walking towards the wall that was in the distance.  As we approached the area, under a beautiful tree, we realized that right across the road was Upper Darby High School.  It was bittersweet.

Bo had a life of service to his family.  He was also a Deacon at his church and served his community. I feel so blessed to have called him my lifelong friend.  

Bo the memories will always hold a special place in my heart.  Your kindness, generosity and sense of humor have brought so much joy to so many.  I will miss the good times we shared together. 

Farewell my friend....Rest in Peace.

Love and laughter!

Just saw this notice. I wish to extend my deepest condolences to Bo’s family and friends. I knew him since Stonehurst Hills Elementary School and have seen him and his lovely wife, Paulette, at several high school reunions. It was always so nice to catch up with him through the years. May he rest in peace.

On 11/5/22, after 52 years, My wife and I had the pleasure to sit at the same reunion table with "Bo" and his wife Paulette. He was the same happy-go-lucky person I remembered from our days at Beverly Hills Junior
High and UDHS. My condolences go out to Paulette and his entire family.
