OBITUARY

William "Bill" V. Boring

January 14, 1929March 12, 2013

William “Bill” V. Boring, 84, of Evansville, passed away Tuesday, March 12, 2013, at Deaconess. He was born January 14, 1929, in Detroit, MI to the late Vernon and Ida (Wright) Boring.

He seldom said “I Love You” in words we can recall. He felt it not the manly thing to do at all, deep within our hearts, we know that love was really there, his eyes, his touch, the things he did all told us that it’s true. And now it’s time to say “Goodbye” to father, to grandfather, to friend. Sweet memories and love remain of him, ones that will not end.

Bill was an Army Korean War Veteran of the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment, serving in the 11th Airborne Division. He was a member of the Elite Rakkasans Unit from 1948-1952 and a recipient of a Purple Heart, a Korean Service Medal with Arrowhead, a UN Service Medal, an Occupation Medal (Japan) and five Bronze Service Stars. He was also a member of the Masons and was a Shriner, at one time serving as President of the Shriners Oriental Band. He was a Kentucky Colonel, member of VFW 1114 and American Legion Funk Houser Post 8. He swore to Bunker Hill and was a charter member of Amvets Post 84. Bill enjoyed putting together train sets, collecting political buttons, was an avid baseball card collector and a fan of crossword puzzles. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and will be greatly missed by his family.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Jenny; daughter, Cindy; grandson, Allen Boring, Jr.; and great-granddaughter, Elizabeth Ann Zoller.

Bill is survived by his sons, Allen (Mary), Bill Jr., and Bob (Amy) Boring, all of Evansville; daughters, Barb (Nick) Morrow of Las Vegas, NV and Denise (Randy) Ashby of Evansville; grandchildren, Ben (Christie) Boring, Jeffrey Sapp, Jonathan Boring, Scott Barnes of Orlando, FL, Jennifer (Mark) Zoller of Las Vegas, NV, Matt Macken, Brittany Ashby Barnard, Michelle (Chris) Hamer, Brady and Anna Boring; great-grandchildren, Amber Zagrodzki of Colorado, Michael Boring, Courtney Boring, Justin Sapp, Jade Boring, Brittany Sapp, Trinidy Boring, Preston Kyle Barnard, Bella and Cruz Zoller, Brady Hamer; and many loving nieces and nephews.

Friends may visit Friday, March 15, 2013, at Alexander West Chapel from 2:00 to 7:00 PM. The Vanderburgh County Retired Veterans Memorial will conduct a military service at 7:00 PM.

To the family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Bill was my neighbor, across the street on Glendale, several years ago. I remember him as a kind, gentle man. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I remember Uncle Bill always letting me sit next to him and we would look at family albums. He never got impatient when I asked who everyone was or why a picture was taken. I really enjoyed going to Mawmaws or "Uncle" Allen house, because I knew he was going to be there. He was a beautiful soul. I'll miss you Uncle Bill. My love goes out to my family today.

Bob, it has been a long time since our skating days at Burdett Park and you will probably have a hard time remmebering me. I just wanted to say how sorry I am to see the death of your dad. I don't think I ever met him, but I do know that our Dad's will be the most important person in our life's. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
