Kind-hearted and sharp-witted, Boe’s charismatic nature was infectious, and he invariably won over any room he ever bounded into. His friends and family will forever remember the charming boy with the crooked smile, the straight-A student too smart for his own good, the athlete who towered above just about everyone.
But they will also remember the dark path that ultimately took his life.
The painful cycle of drug addiction and the constant battle to get clean was a struggle that consumed Boe in entirety, the specter of his addictions extinguishing the bright light of this brilliant young man far too soon.
He is survived by his darling daughter Layla, best friend Katelyn Blume, mother and stepfather Beth and Dennis Tweed, brother and sister-in-law Joseph and Domenica DeLillo, grandmother Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, and a heartbroken extended family.
There is no greater tragedy than the potential of youth snuffed out before its time. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Boe’s memory to www.Shatterproof.org, so that our pain can prevent another family from feeling this devastating loss.
