On Tuesday, June 22, 2021, our precious father, grandfather, brother, uncle,
cousin, and friend William H. Boone Jr. 88, was called home to his eternal
resting place. William H. Boone Jr. was born to the late William Boone, Sr.
and Bestie Harris on October 22, 1932, in Suffolk, Virginia.

William was educated in the Suffolk Public School System. William was an
outstanding football player in his athletic career. He proudly and faithfully
served in the US Army for many years. Later in his adult years he moved
with his family to Norfolk, Virginia. William worked and retired after 30
dedicated years of service at the Norfolk Naval Base.

William was full of life, and he always kept a smile. William enjoyed
interacting with his friends at McDonald’s and traveling on the HRT bus
to Oceanview. His favorite football team was the Minnesota Vikings and
he loved to watch the NFL Playoffs. William loved candy, he would always
ask his children to bring him coconut peach buds, and Broc Hard Candy when
they came to visit.

William H. Boone Jr. accepted Christ at an early age and he was a spiritual
gentle giant for the Lord. He found comfort in listening to gospel music and
often enjoyed his favorite artist, Luther Barnes.

William was preceded in death by his lovely wife Alice V. Boone, brother
John Boone and sister-in-law Gladys Parker.

He leaves to cherish his precious memory: 7 children, William of New York,
Larry (Willa), Shelia, Rosalind all of Norfolk, Raynell (Wanda) of
Portsmouth, Keith (Cheryl) of Norfolk, Sylvia (Antonio) of Chesapeake, and
special son Harvey Knotts of Norfolk. 1 brother Bernard Boone, 2 sisters
Mable Ferebee of Norfolk, Wanda Cakie Boone of Suffolk, 2 sisters-in-law
Pastor Catherine Skinner and Alma Wright (Raymond) of Suffolk, Va. 6
grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, and 6 great-great grandchildren.
William H. Boone Jr. will be forever missed, and his legacy of love will
continue to reign in the hearts of his family and friends.
