Donald "Donnie" Ray Boger Jr. was born Feb. 10, 1977, in Cleveland, Ohio, to his parents, Donald and Barbara (Lasco) Boger Sr., and passed away Jan. 3, 2014, in Fort Myers.
He is survived by his loving wife of eight years, Debra Lynn (Moreau) Boger; brothers, Christopher (Marci) Boger and Anthony "Tony" Boger; mother, Barbara; father, Donald; grandparents, Peter Lasco and William (Charlotte) Boger; nephew, Dominic Boger; 14 feline babies; and many friends and family who will miss him dearly.
He was a funny likeable guy; anyone who met him couldn't help but like him. He had a charismatic personality. He loved his family and friends. Anyone that needed help knew they could depend on him to be there for them. He loved scuba diving, hunting, Oreo ice cream and sweet tea. He loved his mother's French silk pie, peanut blossom cookies and homemade pasta. He also enjoyed watching movies with his wife after work late at night.
