It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Boo Ferguson, of Ocean Springs on November 13th, at the age of 72. Mr. Ferguson retired from the National Guard and Ingalls Shipbuilding. When he wasn’t getting stuck in mud cutting grass, you could find him watching numerous baseball games on the television. Listening to the dogs run during hunting season was one of his favorite things to do in life. He was beyond proud of his grandchildren and all of their accomplishments and was sure to let them know every chance he got. He was preceded in death by his parents, Conard J. Ferguson and Maggie S. Ferguson; and two brothers, Carlton W. Ferguson and Rodney C. Ferguson. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 50 years, Barbara Ferguson; two children, Jenny (Jimmy) Ferguson-White and James Ferguson; five grandchildren, Rebecca Ferguson, Ty White, Taylor Ferguson, Kayla Ferguson, and Micheal Ferguson; brother, Lanny D. (Nita) Ferguson Sr.; sister, Elzie M. Davis; as well as numerous relatives and friends. As many knew, Mr. Ferguson was planning to go to college. He wanted to help in finding a cure for Ataxia, which is a degenerative disease of the nervous system. With that being said, the family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the National Ataxia Foundation.
