Chris Boman

Christopher Thomas Boman passed away tragically on Monday evening, May 6, 2013 in a Motor Vehicle accident east of Chase, BC at the age of 24 years.

A celebration of life service was held from the chapel of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm, on the afternoon of Friday, May 10th at 3 p.m. with Jack Bowers the funeral celebrant. A reception followed in the Mountainside room, allowing time for family and friends to continue sharing memories of Chris.

Born in Salmon Arm, BC on August 5, 1988, and except for a couple of years in Kelowna and then Northern Alberta working in the oil patch, Salmon Arm was his lifetime residence. He was enrolled, and enjoying, his welding apprenticeship with Okanagan College in Kelowna, working with his father in Salmon Arm on weekends. Chris is well remembered for living life with passion, his good nature, making friends with everyone he met, and zest for making all feel special.

Chris leaves his loving and dedicated family; mother Tanya (Daryl Campbell) of Cranbrook, father, Tom Jr. (Mavis) of Salmon Arm, siblings, Ashley, Tanner, Haylen and Moriya, grandparents, Tom and Donna Boman of Salmon Arm, uncles, Darrell (Angie) Boman (with cousins, Silas and Hunter), uncles Richard and Jeremy Messer, many other uncles, aunts, cousins, as well the Mower and Stupka families, and a host of friends.

Chris always assisted with the Salvation Army Christmas Kettle drive, and he would be honored if friends continued his love to help others in need.
