Glad I found this tribute site.
I met Jeff in the 9th or 10th grade at Reagan High School when his family lived down the road from us
Jeff was always a free spirit, enjoyed the outdoors a much as I... We spent hours and days together snake and lizard hunting around the Austin area.
We shared an apartment together for a few years.
My life changed, I got married, had kids, and all that and had lost track of him over the years.
For a long while, as others had, believed he had already passed away. Which turned out not to be true when he pinged me on LinkedIn maybe 2yrs ago. He was out on the highland lakes working as a camp site host.
Even as I tried, I lost track of him again..
I just recently moved from the Austin area to Corpus Christi, only to find out he was living in the Rockport area. We were finally able to spend an afternoon together, and I was able to return to him some of his most cherished art pieces he had done for me.
I always felt like Jeff struggled to fit into life here, in this place and this time, and wish him gods speed, and hope his soul is finally at rest!.

I love you man!

I think of Jeff as a renaissance man. He was my friend and hunting buddy. We shared many good times hunting of which some were real adventures. He could stay in the field hours on end. Jeff was talented in many areas. He was an artist, sculptor and he loved music. He was very interested in Native American life and culture. Jeff was extremely bright and knowledgeable in many subjects. He was a free spirit and a vagabond. Although Jeff had many health issues he persisted. Rest in Peace MY FRIEND.

Jeff Boobar - Obituary

Jeffrey Scott Boobar age 57 of Austin, Texas passed away on May 6, 2021 at Cedar Park Regional Medical Center with family by his side. He was born June 20, 1963 in San Antonio, Texas to John and Sara Boobar. The family moved to Austin in 1973 and he graduated from John H. Reagan High School in 1981.

Jeff was a talented artist and sculptor and shared his artwork in several different ways and places including Minnesota where he lived for many years, Austin and the Highland Lakes area. He was most happy when he was outdoors in the wilderness searching for dinosaur bones, Indian tools and arrowheads. Jeff held a few different jobs during his lifetime including working for a local billboard company in Austin and Dairy Farm Milk Tester during his time in Minnesota. Most recently he was working as a volunteer Park Ranger in multiple State Parks in Texas and sharing his knowledge of the outdoors in different programs for the park guests. His first love however was creating art and that always brought him the most joy.

He never met a person that he didn’t call a friend and he will not be forgotten by any for the interesting stories he could share of his adventures and his knowledge of many different subjects.

Jeff was predeceased by his father John Oscar Boobar. He is survived by his mother Sara Cartwright Boobar, sister Denise Callahan and husband Mike Callahan , brother Dan Boobar, nephew and nieces Chris Callahan and wife Amber, Ryan Callahan and wife Jasmine, Lisa Sanchez and husband Isaac, Megan Boobar and Shawn Boobar and many more family and friends here and across the country.

A Celebration of Life is being planned for the near future. For those wishing to honor Jeff’s life we suggest donations to the American Heart Association, Austin Art Alliance or a charity of your choice.
