His childhood was spent in a farm community near Cookietown, Oklahoma. Bates graduated from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College (Oklahoma State University) (1947). Boles became a pilot and joined the Army Air Corp. During World War II, he became a bombardier, (known as BB) on the crew of the "Stumpy Joe." On their second mission, all 11 men parachuted to safety in Yugoslavia and survived behind enemy lines for two months with the help of partisans and the Russian Army. They were all returned safely to their headquarters in Bari, Italy. After the war, Bates returned to Oklahoma. In later years, the "Stumpy Joe" crew enjoyed many reunions.

Late in his career, Bates was often in Washington, DC, as he served as the Manager of Government Compliance for Gulf Oil. Bates and Helen Rae Payne were married in 1949 and had two children. They enjoyed raising Dan and Linda and were involved in coaching and community organizations wherever they lived. Retirement began in 1983 with Bates and Helen traveling the world, attending military reunions, growing tomatoes and hitting the garage sales. Bates had a passion for playing dominoes and cards, listening to country music, and following sports, especially the Oklahoma State Aggies. Bates Boles is survived by his children, Daniel Boles (June) of Belen, New Mexico, and Linda Edens (Dennis) of Spring, Texas; three grandchildren, James Edens (Laura Rebecca) of Wrangell, Alaska, Jacoby Boles of Sidney, Nebraska, and Laura Edens of Houston, Texas; and by four great grandchildren, Ander, Clara, Everett, and Lillian of Wrangell, Alaska.
