Quinton was born in Mexia on May 9, 1990 to Samuel J. Bozeman and Sharon K. (Rains) Bozeman Schoen. He grew up in Groesbeck, attending Groesbeck High School, where he played on the Groesbeck Goat football team, ran track, and especially enjoyed his welding class. Quinton graduated in the Class of 2009, and he also earned his Welding Certification in 2009 from Panola College. He continued to love welding as an occupation for some years. Quinton spent a lot of his youth with his grandparents, Gilbert and Linda Rains in Center. After his graduation, he worked in various welding jobs, including some jobs in Center and Lufkin while living with the Rains. He also lived in Oklahoma during a time his mother was living there, working with Quad Graphics as a pressman assistant with his stepfather. All his life, Quinton’s big love of life was hunting and fishing and being outdoors. He spent countless hours with his father, both grandfathers, and big brother Seth, hunting, year-round. He loved to fish–anywhere there was water, even in a mud hole as a little boy. Digging in the dirt was always a part of Quinton’s life. As a little boy, the grandparents at Center gave Quinton and Seth some digging equipment toys, and they proceeded to use these to dig a hole big enough to be their “cave” under the edge of the house. They grew from there to digging their own swimming pool; between five kids with shovels, they dug a hole 4-1/2 feet deep, 11 feet wide and 15 feet long, and his dad lined it was plastic and filled it with water. The kids had a blast in the sandy water. For the past few months, Quinton was back to digging in sand, being employed at Superior Silica south of Kosse as an equipment operator. He absolutely loved this job and told his family he was a “grown kid in a big sandbox.” Quinton was friendly and outgoing and never met a stranger; he was loved by all his family and many friends. Quinton knew his Savior. He accepted Jesus at seven years old, at the Lost Prairie Baptist Church while Reverend Jerry Fulton was the minister. He read his Bible and kept one with him at all times, and never missed an opportunity to share his testimony and discuss the Bible with others. He moved his membership to Lake Limestone as a teenager, but also attended White Rock Missionary Baptist Church while in Center and also the Prairie Grove Baptist Church. He has now gone to live in his eternal home with the Lord and Savior. Quinton is survived by brother, Seth Bozeman of Groesbeck; his mother and step-father, Sharon and Jeffrey Schoen of Lufkin; his father, Samuel Bozeman of Groesbeck; maternal grandparents, Gilbert and Linda Rains of Center and paternal grandparents, Delmer and Jane Bozeman of Groesbeck; aunts and uncles, Karen and Archie Hayley of Mt. Vernon, TX, Sheila and Ronnie Vaughn of Bayou Vista, TX, Michael Rains of Austin, Thalia Woitena of Texas City, and Delmer and Laura Bozeman of Alvin; numerous cousins, and many friends.
