Donald Lee Boeth, 83, of Trophy Club, TX passed away in his sleep with a hint of a smile on his face July 28, 2020. His battle with heart, kidney and related issues is over. Our prayers for healing have been answered.

Don was born September 6, 1936. He grew up on North Topping Street in Kansas City, MO. He graduated from Raytown High School where he was an offensive lineman on the football team. He met the love of his life, Doris Kathleen Harper Boeth, while attending Central Missouri State University in Warrensburg. They were blessed with almost 63 years of marriage.

Don was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Ruby Boeth, his brothers, Walt and Bob, and his son David Allen Boeth. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his daughter Donna Wright and her husband, Robert, his son Dan Boeth, his son Dale Boeth and his wife, Jill, and his daughter Denise Maggard and her husband, Bryan. Don was blessed with 9 grandchildren: John, Christina, Elena (and her husband, Domenick), Jesi, Brittany (and her husband, James), Brianna, Brandon, Alex, and Katie, and 4 great-grandkids: Hunter, Austin, Colton and Lucia.

Don and Kathy have been grateful for their many friends, including those at Goshen Primitive Baptist, Harper, MO, First Southern Baptist, Lawrence, KS, Calvary Evangelical Methodist, St. Charles, MO, College Church of the Nazarene, Olathe, KS, The Church at Trophy Lakes, Trophy Club, TX, and First Baptist, Keller, TX.

Don’s loyalties were always to God, family, country, and later in life, the Dallas Mavericks. He worked as an entrepreneur and salesman in several industries, including auto parts, paper products, healthcare, construction equipment, and business services. Don was a corporate Vice President with ServiceMaster, headquartered in Downers Grove, IL. He had an exceptional ability to build rapport with new acquaintances, assess opportunities, and negotiate deals. He played baritone and enjoyed marching bands. He served his country as a member of the Missouri National Guard/U.S. Army Reserve and he served others through the Kanwaka 4H Club, The Gideons International and numerous church committees.

He will be missed dearly, but we have confidence that we will see him again in Heaven thanks to God’s gift of eternal life offered to all who trust in the resurrection and confess that Jesus is Lord. (See Romans 10).

A memorial service is planned for Saturday, August 1, 2020. Visitation will be at 10:00 am, immediately followed by a service led by pastor Keith Sanders at 11:00, at Keller’s Old Town Funeral Home, 220 Keller Parkway, Keller, TX 76248. Burial will follow at Medlin Cemetery, Trophy Club, TX.

Masks and appropriate social distancing will be required.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Don’s name to the Missions Fund at First Baptist Church Keller, 225 Keller Parkway, Keller, TX 76248.

I wanted share my deepest sympathies to all of you this evening learning of Don's passing. It was a true honor knowing my Godfather. I have so many sweet memories of coming to your home in Olathe Kansas to visit as a young boy to play and get to know your family. I also knew of your early plots to get Neece and I married! {HAAA!!}

I loved all of your family's kindness and generosity of spirit each time we visited with you as I grew up and became a man. Don's joy for people and for life was not lost upon me as I saw how he interacted so effortlessly with others. As I became a Pastor I strove to show the same enthusiasm as Don demonstrated for others. He loved people.

Thank you Kathy for sharing him with so many and sharing him with me as a young boy that I got to see how to be a man who could be strong and caring for people as well. God bless you and your family in this time and in all times. If you need anything, I am only a phone call away.

Love in Christ Jesus
