Lentz Family

Mr. Gene was the kindest and most gentle soul. After both of our children were born and shopping with us at Publix, he always made sure to smile and laugh with them. As they got older, he insisted every time they take a coloring book and crayons from Publix. Sending big hugs to his family. Robin Lentz and Family

I'm so sorry to hear of Gene's passing. I always enjoyed seeing him at Publix. After reading his story, it looks like he lived a wonderful life. Hugs, prays, and much love to his family and friends.

I was so saddened to hear of Mr. Boles’ passing. He made grocery shopping a treat! He was the sweetest person and I loved talking to him and listening to his stories. He would always offer to take my groceries to the car and I would let him because I enjoyed his company so much. He will be truly missed. Prayers for his family.

Our family loved seeing "Mr. Gene" at Publix. He always made a point to come talk to them, bring them stickers or balloons, and make them laugh. Such a sweet, genuine person. Sending love to his family, who I know must miss him dearly.

Charlton Eugene "Gene" Boles


Charlton Eugene Boles 87 passed away peacefully in his home 12/23/2022 surrounded by his family.

Eugene was born January 1, 1935, in Brooks County, Georgia to G. W. And Lillie Mae Hagan Boles. His parents passed away when he was a young boy. He and his brothers James (Louise), G W(Jean), Bobby (Karen) and Elvin (Jeannie) were taken in and raised by their uncle and aunt Oscar and Myrtle Hagan. They were raised as siblings to their first cousins Phyillis Lewellen, Ann Moughton (Bob), Robert, Wilson and Dewey Hagan (Jeannie).

Eugene grew up in Brooks County, Georgia where he met his beautiful wife Anna Rebecca Boles. They raised 5 kids.

He started farming as a young boy which taught him to become an avid gardener. Everywhere he lived through the years he always grew a garden full of vegetables. He loved to share his accomplishments with others and he also loved to share tips of how to grow your own.

Eugene moved to Florida later in life to work at Rayonier where he retired after 42 years to start work at Publix where he retired after 15 years. His favorite part of working at Publix was seeing all the children which was fitting because he used to play Santa years ago on the fire truck in Yulee, Florida.

Eugene never met a stranger. He loved to tell his life story to everyone and everyone always fell in love with his kind, tender, caring, loving heart.

Eugene was preceded in death by his wife Anna Rebecca Boles, his parents GW and Lillie Mae Boles, his brothers GW, Elvin, Bobby, Robert and Dewey.

He leaves behind his brother, James Boles (Louise); his children: Kenny Boles (Wynette), Cindy Gillikin (Tim), Stanley Boles (Beth), Tammie Siprell (Bobby) and Denise Bottorff; his grandchildren include Mary Herbert (JJ), Josh Boles, Kimberly Liles (Kelly), Daniel Boles (Christine), Benjamin Boles, Drew, Eli and Isaac Bottorff, Jacob, Mathis and Ashley Pittman, Ashley Moore (Reese), Yancy Siprell (Jenni), Brooke Siprell, Bailey Audette (Brandon). His great grandchildren include Finley Pittman, Brayden Boles, Colton, Wyatt, Electra and Rhett Boles, Sophia, Oakley and Cooper Moore, Clayton and Emberlynn Siprell, Ethan and Anna Liles, Kaidyn, Kimber and Kenna Gerry, Coleman Black-Siprell
