Longtime Boise Parks employee Joe Boggs passed away on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at his home of natural causes. Joe was a fixture at Willow Lane Athletic Complex in Boise doing field prep and was the night supervisor for softball. He umpired with the Boise Softball Umpire Association. A memorial service in his honor will be held later this summer at Willow Lane.
Earl Killian, of Boise Parks, said:
"It is with great sadness that I report to you all that Joe Boggs lost his battle with cancer over the weekend. Joe passed away at home in the early hours of Saturday morning. The family has asked that we put on a Memorial Service for Joe, at Willow Lane Athletic Complex this Summer. We all have lost a great steward and friend. We will miss you Joe, very much! "
