Funeral services for William Chanson Boman II, 44, of Cookeville, were held at 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, from the chapel of Goff Funeral Home in Monterey. Interment followed in Welch Memorial Cemetery.
The family received friends from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19, at the funeral home.
Chanson was born Oct. 18, 1973, in Crossville to William "Bill" Boman of Monterey and the late Nancy Nickens Boman.
He passed away Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017, in Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. When a soldier goes to war and saves a bunch of people, they give him a Medal of Honor and call him a hero. Chanson had made the same decision when he decided to save others by being an anatomical organ donor. He is a hero.
He was a computer technologist, working with DeKalb County Schools in the IT department. He was a graduate of Monterey High School, class of 1991. He was also a graduate of Tennessee Technological University, graduating with a degree in microbiology. He worked as a microbiologist in Virginia with ATCC and in Red Boiling Springs, TN, with Nestlé Waters.
He is survived by his father, William "Bill" Boman (and Mimi and her son, Will) of Monterey; a sister, Christian Boman of Crossville; and his fiancée, Tiffany Boyd of Cookeville.
Bro. Harry Nickens and the Rev. Danny Allen officiated at the services.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be given in his memory to Tennessee Donor Services at www.tbs.dcids.org; 1600 Hayes Street, Suite 300, Nashville, TN 37203.
D.M. Goff Funeral Home, Inc. is in charge of arrangements.
