BOAG, HANK  
HANK BOAG Henry John "Hank" Boag, of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully Friday evening, Feb. 20, 2015, surrounded by his loving family. Hank was born in Jersey City, N.J. (his family promised to never give away his age). Hank was preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Anna Boag. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Ingrid; son, Paul; daughter, Kimberly and her husband, Mark Stuhmer; and four grandchildren, Paul Boag, Sydney Stuhmer, Logan Heese and Colin Stuhmer, who were his pride and joy. He also leaves behind a brother, Gene Boag; a sister, Barbara Dwyer; and many nieces and nephews; as well as his former wife, Tina who remained such a big part of his life. Hank moved to Las Vegas in 1965. He earned the respect and friendship of so many in our area. Starting as a shill at the Lady Luck Casino downtown, his ambitions and motivation took him from the Lady Luck to running several casinos on the Las Vegas strip. Hank ended his casino career in order to initiate a very successful communication center and verification company where he employed hundreds of people. Through all his endeavors he was always known for his caring generosity and sense of fairness. Along his journey with us here he made many life-long friends. He was known for his sense of humor, love of adventure, and his unique ability to make everyone laugh even at the most inappropriate times. He will be missed by so many. His memory, however, will remain in our hearts forever. A mass will be offered at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, at Bishop Gorman chapel, 5959 S Hualapai Way, Las Vegas. Celebration of Hank's life will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Hank's name to the Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation, 4141 Swenson, Las Vegas, NV 89119, where he received such wonderful care.

BORGAARD, KENT  
KENT BORGAARD John "Kent" Borgaard, of Las Vegas, passed away Feb. 22, 2015. J. Kent Borgaard was born Feb. 11, 1929, to Ray and Ethyl Borgaard. Surviving him in life are his wife, Mary G. Borgaard; and his brother, Weldon Borgaard of Cheyenne, Wyo. Kent married Mary (nee Goodson) Borgaard in 1950 and together they raised four children, Barbara Strahl (Al), Boni Moretti (Robert), Jay Borgaard and Dave Borgaard (Kristie). He also has 14 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren. Kent served in the Korean War in the U.S. Navy on the USS Boxer and the USS Princeton. He worked many different jobs providing for his family as he attended the seminary to become a pastor as his father had been. Through the years, his pastoral services took him to Pleasantville, Iowa, Sioux Falls, S.D., Des Moines, Iowa, Elkhart, Ind., and Las Vegas. He was an avid writer and published two books. He counseled married couples through his work at Oaklawn Center in Indiana in his "Recovery of Hope" program. He helped people through AA and addictions. He was the ear that everyone and anyone could bend and he'd listen intently. Kent was a man of little needs, a good sunset, a glass of wine with friends and he was content. He often said, "leave the world a better place than you found it and the rest will work itsellf out." He was the messenger of hope and joy. He will always be pictured by his family rising from his bed in the dark because the words in his mind had finally put themselves together, in a way that had danced ahead of his consciousness during the waking hours. Careful not to disturb the household, he fumbled in the twilight for his glasses and tiptoed to his office to write it all down. His words were always eloquent and flowed through him to his writings that he loved to share with the world. He was the "bridge over troubled" water to everyone he ever knew Memorial service will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1, at First Christian Church, 101 S. Rancho Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89106. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to, Vegas PBS, 3050 E. Flamingo Road, Las Vegas, NV 89121.

HAYNES, CHRISTIE  
CHRISTIE HAYNES As someone who had a passion for discovering the history of others, it is no wonder that Christie Haynes wanted to leave a long legacy of her own, 98 years is a full life. During her life, Christie found pleasure and developed talents for many things, particularly learning, educating, and helping others discover their family histories. Christie LaVerne Hermansen was born March 3, 1917, in Preston, Nev., to Nettie and Christian Hermansen Jr. As a young girl she developed a love of reading and later went on to attend Utah State University and University Nevada, Reno, where she earned a degree in education, not something a lot of women did at that time. Christie married Reginald Scott Haynes Feb. 21, 1942. Together, they lived in Ely, for 23 years, before moving to Las Vegas with their four children, Richard, Connie, Paul and Pattie. Christie was also a loving stepmother to her stepson, Mike Haynes. Christie's love of reading and teaching stayed with her for the duration of her life and she was a very devoted educator. Often, some of her students would arrive to school hungry, as their parents could not afford breakfast. When she discovered this, she started bringing loaves of bread and bananas with her to school each morning, so that her students would not have to learn on empty stomachs. Once she retired, Christie continued to share her love of books by teaching adults how to read. Well into her 90's, Christie was also adept with computers and would frequently e-mail friends and family members, something her grandchildren would often brag about. Along with learning and educating, Christie loved helping others put together the pieces of their family trees. She volunteered for many years at the Family History Center in Las Vegas. She also loved researching her own genealogy and eventually became a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution after the age of 95. Christie Haynes passed away peacefully on her wedding anniversary, Feb. 21, 2015 (officially recorded as Feb. 22), in the company of her two loving daughters. She is survived by four of her five children, Richard Haynes (Marilyn), Connie Price (Sherman), Paul Haynes (Laurie) and Pattie Heaton (Russ); as well as 19 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren. Christie's stepson, Mike (Karen), passed away in 2013; as did her stepgreat-grandson, Ryan Horne in 2014. Her family would like to thank her many doctors and the kind professionals at Nathan Adelson Hospice. Christie Haynes was cherished by many and will be missed. Viewing will be 10-11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, with services following both at Black Mountain Stake Center, 400 S. Water St., Henderson, NV 89015.
