As a man who enjoyed life’s simple things, Bo would not want a lengthy remembrance here.  Instead, he wrote his own obituary in the hearts of those who knew him. If you had the pleasure of calling him a friend, you know what a devoted friend he was. Whether it was getting your car back on the road or fixing a leaking sink, Bo would be by your side no matter how long the job lasted.
He is preceded in death by his mother Nellie Lutsy, step-father Patsy Lutsy, sister Brenda Lutsy, and brother Bobby Adkins. He is survived by brother David (Christi) Lutsy, sister Elizabeth (Glen) Peters, sister-in-law and faithful friend Evelyn Adkins, special friend Laura Wilson, and a host of loving nieces, nephews, and friends.
Services will be held at noon on Saturday at Rumble Community Baptist Church in Ashford—where he was a devoted member, having missed only three services in 17 years—with Rev. Richard Harold officiating. Friends may call one hour before the service. Interment will follow at Rumble Heights Cemetery.
