In his all-too-short life, Bo made many good friends, distinguished himself in his profession, traveled widely, and touched many lives. Although there was more he hoped to do, he accomplished much in his very full life. If one word could describe Bo, it would be dedicated. Dedicated in faith, family, friends, and profession. Bo attended Atlanta High School, where he earned numerous accolades in both academics and athletics. He was a Top Ten Scholar and a decorated athlete, running cross country and track. He earned all-state, all-region, and all-district honors, claimed individual regional and district titles, and guided the Atlanta Rabbit track team to a 3A state title with a victory in the 3,200 meter and a second place finish in the 1,600 meter.

While at Baylor, he was a cross country first team All-Big 12 Conference runner and an Academic All-American. Bo was active in Boy Scouts, earning the rank of Eagle Scout and was inducted into the Order of the Arrow. The Scout Law and Oath taught him to be prepared, love God and country, and initiated a life-long love of wildlife and nature. His favorite place, next to his home and family, was Caddo Lake. Bo attended medical school at Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Ft. Worth. In 2015, he completed his Residency with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
