Marquis “Steele” Lettrell Boga


Marquis Lettrell Boga was born on June 1, 1995 in New Albany, MS. to Tamela Boga.

He professed his faith in Christ Jesus at an early age at Hopewell # 1 M.B. Church, where his grandmother, Effie Boga, brought him every Sunday.  He was an active member in his youth and a long-time member of Hopewell # 1 in Holly Springs.

Marquis was loved by his family and so many people!  He was friendly to all and was so ‘happy-go-lucky’.  His desire was to make all he came in contact with laugh and just dance, dance, dance!  His favorite colors were red and black, and he loved to wear them.  Marquis was disabled, but he helped the family in looking out for his grandfather. 

Marquis departed this life on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at approximately 7: 15p.m, at the Marshall/Benton County line, in a tragic accident that will leave his family and friends permanently scarred for life.
