Jr was the nicest guy and a good friend. I will miss his visits to the garage where we could talk racing for hours. Loved to see him racing back in the day. He will be missed. We will keep the family in our prayers.

My heart and prayers are with Diane, Terri, Judy and family members. My first memories of Junior started with his pick up truck! Then racing at Winchester Speedway with my Daddy at his side. Later a family trip to Virginia Beach to vist me. Remembering how Junior and Daddy shared a friendship. My love to all who shared his time on Earth.

My Condolence goes out to the Boone Family. “Junior” was a great guy and always seemed to have a smile on his face. The “ Dirt Tracks” have lost another “WARRIOR”. I will miss “ Sneaking Up “ on you in your pick-up truck in the Winchester Speedway Pits Parking lot and tapping on your driver window and watching you “jump” ! :-) . You were a Great Guy and you will be missed. When i hear Thunder from now on, I’ll wonder if its you leading the Feature in Heaven. .........GIT ‘EM !!!!
