Bobby Gustene ‘Booger’ Strickland

Bobby Gustene “Booger” Strickland, 64, of Patterson, passed away Tuesday, August 16, 2022, at his residence.

Born in Jesup October 31, 1957, he had lived in Pierce County all his life. He was in the logging business working for Wall’s Timber. He could fix anything and loved to play pool, logging and nature. He also loved Elvis which is ironic seeing as how he passed away on the same day as Elvis.  

He was a son of the late Ray Gene “Bull” and Betty Thornton Strickland. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn Smith Strickland.

Survivors include his son, Nick Strickland (Rhiannon Williams), Offerman; four sisters, Angela Strickland, Roxanne (Benji) Davis and Donna Gill, all of Offerman and Tonya (Danny) Parker of North Carolina; two brothers, Ray Gene Strickland Jr., Offerman and Tony (Amanda) Guy of North Carolina; a granddaughter, Bristyl Strickland; his step-mother, Beulah Strickland, Blackshear and several nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19, at the funeral home.
