Robert Michael Boling


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Robert Michael Boling of Roswell died March 16, 2019 at ENMMC. Mike was born in Blackwell, Oklahoma, the eldest son of Bob and Mary Boling. He was educated in the Artesia public schools and later attended New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. He earned his BS of Geology in 1973. In 1974 he married Jamie Boling in Lima, Peru while he was working for GSI. Mike felt so fortunate to have had those experiences, working in another country and in the jungles of Peru. We all heard so many stories. He also worked for Phillips Petroleum in Denver before moving to SE New Mexico in 1983 to work with his dad Bob Boling, a longtime landman in Artesia. After his father’s death in 1991, Mike moved his office to Roswell and worked for himself. Mike loved everything about the oil and gas industry, its people along with researching and promoting new projects.

Mike leaves his wife Jamie; his son Colin and fiancé, Vanessa Vinas of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and son Blake Boling of Albuquerque, NM. He also is survived by sister Jackie Jones and her husband Roger of Artesia; nieces Pam Jimenez of Artesia and Savannah Boling of Lubbock, Tx.; great nieces and nephew Andrea, Gracie, Janayeh, Mateo, all of Artesia. Mike was predeceased by his brother Mark Boling and niece Emily Flores.

Mike received a kidney transplant in 1998 from whom we believe to have been a happy Florida lady. That assumption came from the sheer longevity of the kidney and also that Mike started liking really bright vivid colors.

Family and friends are invited to attend a “wake” for Mike this Friday, March 22, 2019 at The Liberty from 4:00 -6:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made in Mike’s honor to DonateLifenm.org (click on menu and scroll down to Contribute, indicate dedication to Mike).
