Ronald Kenneth Boehm passed away on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013, at his home in Anthem, Ariz. He was born March 31, 1981, to Michael S. Boehm and Elaine Edgar of Hobbs.
In May 1999, he graduated from Bloomfield High School. He attended Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo., graduating with a bachelor's degree in psychology, sociology and a minor in criminology. While attending Adams State College, he participated nationally in the track and field events of shot-put and discus.
While working at Dominos Pizza in Alamosa, Colo., he met his wife, Haley R. Jackson. They were married, June 11, 2005, and three children blessed this marriage: Kaidence Annabelle, 7; Brooklyn Hope, 5; and Samuel Lucas, 3.
In 2004, the family moved to Phoenix, Ariz., where he was employed by Anderson Security. In 2005, he began working as a corrections officer for the State of Arizona's Juvenile Corrections system. By 2008, he was promoted to the position of Youth Program Supervisor and was given managerial responsibilities. In 2011, he earned his MBA from the University of Phoenix in Glendale, Ariz.
He was an extremely hard worker and took great pride in counseling at-risk juveniles and serving alongside his fellow employees. Many of his coworkers would become his best friends. He loved to play softball and football, snowboard, golf and spend time at the lake fishing. He was often found outside spending time with friends. But more than any of these, he loved spending time with his wife and family. They were to become his greatest achievement.
Ronald was preceded in death by his father, Michael S. Boehm; his maternal grandfather, Kenneth D. Edgar; and his paternal grandmother, Sandra K. George.
He is survived by his wife, Haley R. Boehm; his three children of Anthem, Ariz.; his mother, Elaine (Edgar) Flippen of Phoenix Ariz.; brothers, Bradley R. Boehm of Farmington, Michael J.
