Knew Bo in Gillette Wy. Lost track of each other. All of these comments about him are so right on. Such a super nice generous person.

Bo was a good man and a good friend. It's tough to lose the good ones, and no good thing ever dies. God's peace to you and your family.

I'm shocked and saddened by the news of Bo's death. I can hear his hearty laugh and see his infectious smile so easily. He was a good friend since high school and a neighbor in Central City. He put us up in the school when we came out to ski. He will be greatly missed!

My deepest sympathies go out to Bohunk's family and friends. Dwight was one of a kind and every memory I have of him is always accompanied by a smile. Rest in Peace my friend.

My sympathies to all who loved Bohunk. What a great guy! I will miss his smile, laugh, and the stories we shared. Love you.

I haven't seen Bo in a long time but I know if I had the chance now it would be just like "old" times. He was a fun and decent man who will be missed.

Bo, really sadden by this news, I will remember stopping in to see you in Central City and really never knowing what we would do, but it was always fun. Mistery meat stew to basketball, I was always surprised. Sorry we missed you last summer, thanks for the fond memories. Richie

Bo, we are saddened that another Amoeba has fallen but you can now join Chap and McGinnis. They say that what a man does each day will determine how they will be remembered tomorrow. I will remember you as a gentle and generous soul who laughed, cared, and gave his license plates to Buddha!!!!

I roomed with Dwight at SDSU in the early 1970s and stayed in touch for many years while living in the Black Hills are. Many fond memories of a really good guy!

I was shocked & heartbroken to hear of Bo's passing. He was such a nice guy w/a great sense of humor! I will never forget his generosity when he let me hold a benefit for the animal shelter in his school gym & who can forget the 'Door Prize' that was actually a door! He kept it for quite a while from what I understand. RIP Bo...you were one of a kind!
