Patrick "Hippy Pat" Boven

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Patrick "Hippy Pat" Boven, a resident of Alpena, AR, was born Oct. 12, 1944 in Chula Vista, CA, a son of Henry and Bobbie (Wise) Boven. He departed this life Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013 in Alpena, AR, at the age of 68 years.

Pat's life was a great affection for animals and relishment of the outdoors Pat enjoyed fishing and hunting; and once the harvest was in Pat knew how to cook and serve on a plate. Hippy Pat was known to "have a cold brew" with friends in Green Forest, and if you met Pat he was in individual that you could not help but "like." I guess the best way to describe Patrick Charles Boven "Hippy Pat" is "Pat loved life and life love Pat."

He is survived by wife, Diane Dozier of the home; three sisters, Sally Albertson of Chula Vista, CA; Marlene McClain of Chula Vista, CA; Linda Trujillo of Houston, TX; sister-in-laws and spouses; Donnelle Pesson and husband Karl of New Iberia, LA; Debra Rayburn and husband Dale of Denver, NC; several nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Bobbi Boven.

There will be no formal services at this time. Cremains will be scattered on the 40 acres of nature south of Green Forest and Alpena that for the last 24 years he has shared as home in the woods with Diane Dozier, wife, life companion and the love of his life. Cremation arrangements were made with Nelson Funeral Service. Online condolences may be sent to the family at
