Jesse L. Boware

July 28, 1961 — February 5, 2023

Akron

Mr. Jessie Lee Boware, was born on July 28, 1961, in Akron, Ohio, the son of the late Jesse and Maedora Boware.  Mr. Jesse Lee Boware was a graduate of John R. Buchtel High School.  "Griff Nation!"  
Afterward, He went on to work for Gojo Industries for a little over 19 years, before retiring due to health concerns.
During that time, Jesse met and remained with the love of his life, Sheila Johnson, for nearly 37 years.  When you seen him, she was never too far behind, including hospital stays.  (Neither one stayed overnight without the other).  They were Heaven sent for one another.  Jesse was a man known for sticking to a schedule, he was very regimented.  Every morning he would rise at 4:00 AM, look over the internet till 5:00 AM, CNN until 6:00 AM, head to the gym to workout until 8:00 AM, go to the store to pick up odds and ends, before making his way to McDonalds for coffee, and back home for breakfast.  Jesse (Moochie), as he was lovingly called, loved to shop, and his closet still proves it!  He was the person you could count on to call and check on everyone, and make sure that no one was in need.  And he enjoyed the time he spent talking with his brother Theion (Gooney), and his sister Vonceil (Bonnie) over the phone about any and everything going on in the family.  He loved to dote on his nephews and nieces, whenever given an opening.  He will be sorely missed.

Mr. Jesse Lee Boware leaves to cherish his memories:  loving life partner of 36 years, Sheila Johnson; adopted daughter, Sheila Hullum-Beach "China Doll", adopted son, Anthony Hullum Jr., Brothers, Theion Feaster (Linda) , and Melvin Boware (Younka), of Akron, Ohio.  Sisters, Vonceil Brown (Michael), Diane Boware of Phoenix, AZ, Jacqueline Boware, Betty Jean Dixon, Sue Ellen Boware, and Theresa Boware (Tony Lindsey), all of Akron, Ohio.  Sisters in love, Annie Pearl O'Neal, Mandel Tate of Akron, Ohio.  Brother in love, Frank Johnson of Akron, Ohio.  Best friends, Frank Johnson, Phil Gattis, and William Smith "Monk" all of Akron, Ohio.  As well as a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, aunts and friends.
