Boo was born in San Antonio, Texas. As the son of an air force officer, he had lived all over the world. Boo graduated from Del Norte high school in Albuquerque, N.M., in 1977. After High school , he worked alongside his father in the construction industry. By the time Boo was in his mid 20s, he was an accomplished contractor in his own right.
Having deep family roots to the Pagosa Springs area, it had long been a dream of Boo’s to be able to move his family back to this area. In 2003, he realized his dream and was able to move his family to Pagosa Springs. There he continued his career in the construction business, while enjoying his passion for everything outdoors that Pagosa has to offer.
Boo was preceded in death by his father, Robert H. Pargin, and cousin Lynn Pargin. He is survived by his wife, Karen, son Ben, daughter Ava, mother Barbara Jean (Dannels) Pargin, sister Debra Kay Blevins, aunt and uncle Margaret and Doyle Pargin, cousin Dan Pargin and his wife Tracy.
Memorial services will be held Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. at Centerpoint Church in Pagosa Springs, with a reception immediately following.
In lieu of flowers the Pargin family has asked that donations be made to Centerpoint Church or the Pagosa Springs Humane Society.
