Larry Boles, 77, of Breckenridge, passed away on Thursday, December 2, 2021. His funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, December 6, 2021, at Gunsight Baptist Church, with Dick Garcia officiating. Under the direction of Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home, his interment will be at the Gunsight Cemetery and will immediately follow the funeral service.

Larry Hughes Boles was born on July 7, 1944, to Hershel and Louise Boles. After graduating from Breckenridge High School, he married Janis Faye Walker, and together they raised two sons: Shane and Zabe.

Larry was ornery and loyal. He quietly and humbly provided for his family. Larry was always willing to help those in need. He believed in honesty, integrity and did not mince his words. He was well known for mercilessly teasing and harassing those that he really liked. His funny pranks and sense of humor endeared him to his family members as well as his work families.

Larry was a stern and no-nonsense father who not only always took care of his sons but also taught them both to provide for their families and maintain a strong work ethic. His grandsons could do no wrong, and he would loudly and proudly say “I love you” to them from across a room in front of anyone.

A Breckenridge native, Larry spent his younger years building fences, hauling grain, and hunting with his friends and family. As a young adult, Larry worked for R.E. Dye Mfg., Lone Star Gas, McDowell Chevrolet, and Walker Motors. Larry then worked in the oil and gas industry for Petco, Damson, McClymond, along with Breck Operating, from which he retired in 2019. Larry made lifelong friends throughout his career and enjoyed keeping up with their lives, families, children, and grandchildren.

Larry was a proud supporter of the Stephens County Junior Livestock Show and provided many, many students with pigs, buckles, and add-ons throughout the years.

Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Hershel and Louise Boles, and his sister Betty Wiloth.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Jan Boles; sons, Shane and wife Cory Boles, and Zabe and wife Catherine Boles; grandsons, Tristan Boles, Geurin Boles, Hagen Anderson, and Bailey Boles, all of Breckenridge. He is also survived by his brother, Hurley and wife Donna Boles.

The family would like to thank those that have prayed, called, visited, and sent condolences. The outpouring of love shown to the family has been such a blessing at this time.

Memorial donations in Larry’s name can be made to the Gunsight Cemetery Association or the West Texas Rehabilitation Center. Condolences can be made online at
