Timothy "Mississippi" Shawn Bogue

February 26, 1956 — October 26, 2021

Mr. Timothy "Mississippi" Shawn Bogue, Sr., age 65, of Murray, Kentucky, died on, Tuesday, October 26, 2021, at his home.

Tim was born, February 26, 1956, in Lawton, Oklahoma, to the late Sidney Owen Bogue II and late Marjorie Nell (Pearce) Hightower. As an adult, he worked steadily in the oilfields of Texas and Oklahoma, up until they eventually became bankrupt in the early1980's. He then moved to Mississippi, working for "Air Repair", managing the shop and rebuilding Steerman Crop Duster Engines. In 1994, he moved to Cadiz, Kentucky, where he managed a shop that built industrial blenders. Rather than people referring to his name, this adventure led to him picking up the nickname "Mississippi", because so many associated him and his charming personality and southern accent to where he had arrived from. Later down the road of life, he enjoyed serving and performing dedicated outreach with mentally challenged adults at Pennyrile, where his group won awards for the maintence of the Kentucky Rest area at the Tennessee/Kentucky line.

"Mississippi" trained horses for many people in and around the area of Murray, Kentucky. For the next fifteen years, he would board horses for thirty days, riding them four hours daily making sure the owners were returned their horse's with former problems or concerns mystically corrected. Before he retired, he filled bookings up to two years in advance. He became well-known and a sought after "Horse Whisperer" who rode at Wranglers Camp on the big Appaloosa named "Bandit".


Survived by his wife, Donna Marie (Fiorella) Bogue, of Murray, Kentucky. Three daughters, Sarah Deane Bogue and fiance Mike Griffin of Murray, Kentucky, Jessica Nell (Bogue) Nossaman and husband Brad, of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, Angela Gaylord and husband Kevin, of Chilhowee, Missouri. Two sons, Timothy Shawn Bogue Jr. of Enid, Oklahoma, and Joshua Aaron Bogue of San Angelo, Texas. Seven grandsons, Brody Griffin, Brayden and Lucas Nossaman, Miles, Mason, and Riley Gaylord. One granddaughter, Baeleigh Henshall, as well as several nieces and nephews. Two brothers, Sidney Owen Bogue III, Cottonwood, Texas and Bill Bierman, Murray, Kentucky. Four Sisters, Lisa (Bogue) Hamilton, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Brenda (Bierman) Hoopes, Cleveland, Ohio, Bonnie (Bierman) McQueen, Wilmington, Ohio, and Beverly (Bierman) Astin, Salt Lake City, Utah.


Tim enjoyed and became skilled in many areas, but traveling, fishing, and rebuilding muscle cars were his favorite pastimes. He belonged to many local car clubs and could usually be seen around Murray in one of those cars he so talently restored. No matter what travel destinations He and Donna visited, Tim always took his fishing pole along. He regularly enjoyed fishing with his cousin, Rusty Dickson of Buffalo, Wyoming, during their yearly trips to Kaycee, Wyoming, for Chris LeDoux Days. Every trip, it never failed, the first thing he would say to Donna, once on the road to their next adventure, was "how many miles do you think we have traveled together; probably a million. Tim often expressed gratitude and frequently commented on how blessed he felt in traveling to so many wonderful places both within and outside of the United States. Although not many knew it, Tim frequently committed Random Acts of Kindness to those in need. From buying a wood stove for a family that had no heat in the winter, to playing secret Santa and paying for a strangers groceries or Christmas presents. He preferred being anonymous during these acts, because it wasn't about what he did, but about giving to another.


Visitation will be held at the J.H. Churchill Funeral Home on Friday, October 29th, from 12:00 to 2:00 PM, following at 2:00PM with a "Celebration of Life". Afterwards, the casket will be transferred to a wagon at the Sugar Creek Baptist Church, continuing onward, fulfilling Tim's wishes for the remainder of the journey to the T bar D Ranch, for Tim's internment and final resting place.
