In his spare time, he cared for the lawns of many doctors of the Mississippi Coast. He is most famous as Guitar Bo, where he traveled from coast to coast performing with this band.

He took time out to show family and friends as well as grandchildren how to play the guitar. He was a modern-day BB King.
