BOGGS WAYNE E. BOGGS Husband, father, friend, DC sports fan and dedicated executive, died on Friday, January 22, 2016. We will remember his sense of humor, love of good fires and the Washingtonian, taste for the finer things in life and his mean handshake (but only with his left hand). Wayne was born on September 29, 1954 in Washington, DC and spent his whole life in Arlington, VA. He attended James Madison, Williamsburg and Yorktown High School where he met and then married his high school sweetheart. Wayne kept Arlington on its toes with his love of illegal fireworks and his cherry red corvette that you could hear from miles away. Wayne attended Virginia Tech where he majored in accounting. Wayne started his accounting career at Arthur and Anderson then became the youngest partner at BDO Siedman before becoming the Chief Financial Officer of District Photo, serving in that role for over 20 years. In his role as CFO Wayne helped the firm complete several major transactions, notably its acquisition of Snapfish, and expand its footprint internationally. He worked very hard all his life, up until the very end. Outside of work, Wayne was a football enthusiast and volunteered as an assistant coach for Arlington Youth Football for over 5 years. He was also a lifelong Redskins fan, no matter how they played. Wayne also was an avid traveler. One of his favorite locations was the Atlantis in the Bahamas where he always enjoyed a good ocean view, being surrounded by family and friends, and a cold Dark and Stormy. Wayne is survived by his wife, Debbie; his children, Brian, Suzie and Chris; and his granddaughter, Rylie. Above all, he was a generous friend to everyone he encountered, a loving husband and a devoted father. He made a difference in the lives of many and we invite you to join us to celebrate his life. The memorial will take place on Thursday, January 28 from 6 to 8 p.m., at Murphy''s Funeral Home, 4510 Wilson Blvd. in Arlington.

Dear Debbie, I met Wayne when he was with Seidman & Seidman ,which goes back many years. He went with me in 1983 when I had an IRS Audit...and IRS "accepted the return as filed" due to his fine work pointing out how they missed the information required. He was the sweetest man to work with, a great smile for me and always there to help. I just found out 2 days ago from Leo Bruette at BDO Seidman of his passing.,
All my love and know my sadness for your ( and my) loss.

Please accept my sincere sympathies. Do not underestimate the value of prayer. It is not that prayer simply makes us feel better. The " Hearer of prayer " promises to give holy spirit to his servants who sincerely ask for it. ( Psalm 65 : 2 ) Yes , more than anything else, a relationship with God can help his faithful servants to endure any and every problem they may face.
