Mr. Boatright served as County Commissioner for District Five from November 18, 2008 through November 21, 2016, and as Chairman of the Board on two separate occasions. Mr. Boatright also represented Nassau County on numerous other Boards and Committees including the Transportation Disadvantaged Local Coordination Board, the Economic Development Board, the Small County Coalition, the St. Marys River Management Committee, Value Adjustment Board, the Canvassing Board, JEA's Board of Directors, and the Local Mitigation Strategy Task Force.
Mr. Boatright always treated his fellow commissioners, county staff and constituents with respect and fairness. He was known and loved for his kindness and his great sense of humor. Even after his term as County Commissioner had ended, he continued to be active in the community and maintained life-long friendships with many members of the County staff. He will be greatly missed by all of us.
Mr. Boatright's family will receive friends for visitation on Monday, December 17th from 5:00-8:00 p.m. and the service will be held on Tuesday, December 18th at 11:00 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Callahan.
Please pray for Mr. Boatright's wife, Tonya, their boys, Steven and Jeremy, and his grandchildren as they suffer the loss of this kind and generous man.
