Kerry Boles

August 31, 1991 — April 16, 2021

Kerry Hardiman Boles, age 29, passed away on April 16, 2021. He was born to his parents, Julie Estes Boles and Hardiman Boles, on August 31, 1991, and his home was in Ash Flat, Arkansas. Kerry’s birth and life were a blessing to his mother and father. He was the first-born grandson to both families and was dearly loved by his Pop, Nana, Mimi, and Papa, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. He and his mom lit up each other’s world with their smiles, laughter, and hugs. The mother/son bond was unmatched, and it was obvious to anyone who knew Kerry that his mother would always be his #1. Kerry attended Cordova High School and was a proud graduate of University of Memphis with a double major in history and political science. He enjoyed cooking, eating, boating, golfing, and being with those he loved. Kerry loved his family, farms, friends, and pets. His childhood was full of mule rides with Lucky dog, silly string, games of hide & seek on the farm with his Aunt Carolyn and cousin Steph. His summers were full of adventures on his farm with Pop creating memories for everyone. He liked haircuts from Mimi and enjoyed the time they spent together. Kerry would not go anywhere without his best friend, Teddy! At age 12, he became a big brother to Maddy whom he loved fiercely and protected, and she him. With joy, he was Maddy’s ride home from school, meeting her at the end of the hallway. With a wide grin, he took her backpack and always offered a big hug. In his teens, he enjoyed floor-seat views at Grizzlies games and Redbird box seats with his Pop, playing golf with his dad, and fishing White River with his Papa. He also enjoyed rounding up his Papa’s cows with his dad and uncles as well as raking hay. Kerry liked working with his Nana on Beale Street doing printing and embroidery. Kerry was also a big Razorback fan. Kerry made friends easily and people were drawn to him. He used this gift in his career as a salesman first in Nashville selling Lucchese boots and then in Memphis selling vehicles. He was thrilled to be the number one salesperson at the stores in Nashville, and he flourished there in his adult life and cherished his times with his co-workers and friends. He made a new work family at Serra Chevrolet where he earned the nickname “Boots”. His co-workers loved and supported him, and his potential for greatness was obvious to them. There he met his girlfriend, Lauren. Although their time together was short, he was in love and was hopeful for a long future with her and her son. Kerry was a member of the church of Christ and most importantly knew and loved the Lord. The Lord knew him and loved him, and he is counted in the numbers of heaven. “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~Romans 8:38-39. Kerry was preceded in death by his great-grandparents: Hayden & Rexine Estes, Alvin & Maxine Boles, E.H. “Musty” & Ernestine “Tina” Musgrave; great-grandfather, Marty Vinzant, and great-grandmother, Jaye Rose.
