I met Richard Boggs in the 1950’s when we were students at Reagan County High School in Big Lake, Texas. Richard was a year older, so he was ahead of me in school – he graduated in 1953 and I graduated in 1954. I met Richard through Gene Clay Mills a classmate of his who also graduated in 1953. Several of us became really fast high school friends – Richard, Gene Clay Mills, myself (Kenneth Keener), Winston McAden, Boze Hartgrove, Jackie Holmes, Donald Meroney, David McFadden, Jimmy Collie, and others that now at my age (83) I am having trouble remembering.
Richard it seemed always had his father’s car and we often roamed the streets and the surrounding Big Lake area in his car. One night when we were driving from Big Lake in the direction of Texon, I accidently threw a firecracker under a car parked on the highway (thank goodness it did not go in the window) that was watching a drive-in movie and they started chasing us. Richard drove his father’s car as fast as it would go, and we got away but as a result the motor in the car was damaged. Richard later told us that the car had just been overhauled at the car dealership and he should not have driven it fast because it needed to be broke in again at a rather slow speed after the repair. When I heard this I offered to tell Richard’s father about what happened – but Richard said “0h No” – my dad has already took the car back to the dealership complaining about a poor repair and they are fixing it again at no cost – if my dad knew about my fast driving that night I would never be able to drive that car again!
Richard would have been a great football lineman because of his size and athletic ability but we could never get him interested in playing sports. His brother Bill who played football, basketball, and ran track, along with many of us tried in vain to get him to tryout but he said he was too busy helping his father with ranch chores. I know he was a great help for his father on their ranch and in their business near Texon. Richard was extremely involved with Future Farmers of American (FFA).
During the school year all of us boys very often spent the night together in a cabin in the back yard of Boze Hartgrove’s parents home. The Hartgroves many times had hamburgers with all the trimmings, and we played cards, ping pong, etc. Richard won more than his share of poker games! We all loved to gather at the Hartgrove cabin for fun and games.
Another thing I remember about Richard. When I was in the 10th grade and Richard was in the 11th grade we were in a biology class taught by Mr. Nunnally. Once near the end of class Richard (and others) heated some nickels and dimes with a Brunson Burner and when the bell rang the coins were hurriedly thrown out in the hall. Obviously when students saw the coins, they tried to pick them up. Of course, this caused a lot of screaming and hollering and the coins were quickly released. We all thought this was really funny – it is a wonder that we were not all expelled especially David McFadden and Donald Meroney who were the ring leaders!!
Richard, as a youngster always was fond of Mumblety-Peg a game played with pocket knives. He often tried to get others to play the game with him but in high school we all realized we were no match for him - he was too good at that game!!
Looking back on all of this --- we obviously were a bit too mischievous!!!! But we all had great fun growing up in West Texas, Big Lake, and Reagan County High School.
Over the years I would see Richard at RCHS reunions, and we had great fun remembering our past high school adventures. Richard was a great classmate and was just full of fun to be around. God rest his soul.
