Dr. Boren, who practiced medicine for over 45 years and was known as "Stu" by his friends and family, was born on June 11, 1924, in Houston, Texas, to Stella Gorman and W. O. Boren. He married Virginia Ann Boren in 1946. He is preceded in death by his parents, his devoted wife of 52 years Virginia, his brother W. O.

Stu grew up in Houston, attended St. Anne's Catholic school, St.
Thomas High School, and went on to graduate from the University of Notre Dame, and later he graduated from Tulane Medical School. He served as a captain in the U.S. Air Force. He was in general practice for five years before moving his family to Houston in the early 1950's, where he began practice in Urological Surgery with his good friend Dr. Robert Cox, which lasted for the next thirty-five years.
