Mr. Bozeman rode a Harley Davidson motorcycle and was a member of the local motorcycle club, “The Gantt Mafia.” With that passion, he participated in many benefits.

He was a 1977 graduate of Red Level High School.

Most of his life he worked as a large equipment mechanic and could repair most anything. He was a long-standing, loyal employee with Wiregrass Construction Company.
