Arthur (Sonny) Harris Boyum


Mon, Feb 25th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Obituaries

Arthur (Sonny) Harris Boyum Jr. 76, went to be with the Lord very peacefully February 25, 2013 with his family by his side. He was born November 16, 1936 in Rushford, Mn. to Arthur Sr. and Helen (Johnson) Boyum. He is survived by his three children Jamey (Tina) Boyum and son Nathan, Longview Tx., Randy Boyum, Denver, Colorado, and Kristin Boyum, sons Damian and Dimitri, Boca Raton, Fl., and his children's mother Donna Boyum, Avon Colorado, his siblings Ross (Sharon) Boyum, Nancy (Dean) Brown and his niece, Michelle, and nephew, Daniel. He is preceded in death by his parents, nephew Brian and his companion Christine Furticella.

Art's early years working on the family farm eventually gave way to life as a salesman, and he could probably sell water to fish. Except that all fish feared him because of his relentless hobby as a fisherman. So he decided to make money by he going into seed corn sales. After all, he grew up with corn.

The seeds eventually landed him in Colorado where his love of the land and water led him to Jeep trails and days of skimming across the water on skis and on skates.

He eventually became a supreme roadside chef serving roasted corn and baked potatoes to thousands of people in locations throughout the midwest and southern United States. He hadn't sold an ear in years, yet some still ask about him about his corn even now.

His love of sports cars was only matched by his love of his Australian Shepherd Andy who spent many hours as his co-pilot.

His later years with Christine were filled with travel from the Gulf Coast to Minnesota, stopping often to toss coins into slot machines, to wonder at the flight of eagles, and to eat many fried pickles.

Art was a farmer, a salesman, an entreprenuer and a better father than he ever realized.

Memorial Services will be held Wednesday, February 27th, at 1:00 p.m. at Hoff Funeral Home with viewing one hour in advance. Burial will be at Arendahl Cemetary followed by lunch and fellowship at Arendahl Church. Memorial contributions may be given to the family.
