Kriss is survived and dearly missed by his devoted wife, Patty Lanting-Boatman; stepson, Anthony Ragusa; father, Dean Boatman; mother, LaVonne Gunderson; and sister, Sonja (Isaac) Anderson; and many other loving relatives and friends.
He will be dearly missed by his comembers at the Mayer Area Lions club, and his coworkers at Culligan, where he took pride in his position as an installer. He is a member of IAM Local Lodge 459.
