Thomas Boggs

Thomas Boggs, 63, passed away this week. One of the obituaries rightly stated that he cast a giant shadow in Memphis.

Boggs’ first career as a musician included playing with The Box Tops and Flash and the Board of Directors. The Box Tops are best remembered for hits such as The Letter, Cry Like a Baby (late 60s) and I Shall Be Released. In his second career as a restaurateur, he developed the local landmark Huey’s and expanded the concept into seven locations. The Chronicles wrote about Boggs and Hueys at

Our prayers are with his family and friends.
