Obituary

On April 24th, 2022, a beautiful Sunday afternoon; Deacon Lawrence Boles, Jr., while singing and praising the Lord transitioned from this earthly life to God’s eternal glory. Deacon Boles or better known as Junior or Jaycee was born May 2, 1952, in Pascoe, Washington to his parents Lawrence 
Boles, Sr. and Rosie Smith. In his early years, he moved to Seattle and was raised by Mr. and Mrs. Smothers in the Central District. Jaycee attended school in Seattle and was a graduate of Cleveland High School. As a child he loved to swim, play basketball and baseball and he loved to fish.  
            In 1978, he married the lovely Linda Winston, and to this union Lawrence Christopher Boles, III and Salaythiea O. Boles were born.
            Jaycee was employed in the retail and customer service industries. He is most famous for his years of working at Jordan’s Drug Store and Richland’s with the Crispy Fried Chicken. He spent his early years in the Pacific Northwest and later in life he lived in the state of Alabama, where he worked in custodial services. He was known for his jokes and telling long stories, and he was a dancer to his heart. He was so competitive in games such as darts, backgammon, and chess. He truly wanted to always win. 
            Jaycee mentored many young people while being a baseball coach for a little league team. He was known for taking the time to teach his family and friends, namely his grandchildren, nieces, and nephews, how to clean and catch fish. He called himself “The Crappie King”, and he would welcome the competition from anyone that would take the challenge. Jaycee opened his home to take care of family at any time. He will never be forgotten for the love he gave to his niece LaTrecia and nephews Byron and Paul Jr., and many others.
Some of his favorite sayings: “Good Googly Woogly”, “You a lying wonder”, and “I’ll let nothing separate me from the love of God.” When you fish, he would say, “You got to hold your mouth right to catch the fish.”
Jaycee served for many years as a Deacon at Unity Christian Ministries Church of Tacoma, WA. Most recently he became a member of Woodbridge Community Church in Lakewood, Washington. He loved to praise the Lord with a shout and a dance, and when the music got right, he would belt out a song and sing unto the Lord.  
Jaycee was preceded in death by his father, Lawrence Boles, Sr, his mother Mrs. Rosie Smith, and his grandmother Mrs. Gracie Williams. He leaves to cherish his memory and to mourn his leaving this earth, his son, Dr. Lawrence Christopher Boles, III (Jacqualine) of Pacific WA, and his daughter Salaythiea O. Boles of Tacoma, WA. His stepchildren Jamesa, LaSundra, Rekita, Jawan, Jammie, Christiana, Dominique, and Angela. His siblings, Betty Spells of Moses Lake, WA., Carolyn Knox of Moses Lake, WA., Larry Boles of Renton, WA., John Lewis(Michelle) of Stone Mountain, GA, Linda Lewis of Seattle, WA, and Leroy Smith, II (Trudy) of Moses Lake, WA., Anastasia Boles of Katy, TX, Tamara Boles and Byron Boles, both of Jeanerette, LA .  A host of grand and great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and many, many friends. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
