of Little Rock, AR
October 30, 1948 - July 2, 2020
Myron Timothy Boe, 71, of Little Rock, died surrounded by family at home on July 2, 2020, after a long illness. Tim was born in New Orleans on October 30, 1948 to Elaine and Roger Boe. He was predeceased by his parents; his aunt, Vivian Tracy; and uncle, Charles Tracy. He is survived by wife, Susan; two daughters, Elaine Ruth and Vivian Emilia; brother, Michael Boe (Anita); and nephew, Timothy Boe. He delighted knowing his daughters would have each other's friendship for life, because he shared the same bond with his brother. His girls will remember him in the dove and the ladybug. Tim attended Annunciation Academy, 1962, and Pine Bluff High School, 1966. He received his Bachelor of Arts (Phi Delta Theta), 1970, and Juris Doctor, 1973, from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville and his Master of Laws, 1976, from Southern Methodist University. He was a commissioned officer in the United States Army with the Adjutant General Corps. Upon his death, Tim was a senior partner at the Rose Law Firm, which he joined in 1980. His mentorship of young lawyers and care for his clients fostered lasting friendships.Tim's 46-year career included Pine Bluff City Attorney, 1974-1975; Arkansas Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission, Commissioner (17 years); Arc of Arkansas, Board of Directors; American Employment Law Council, Charter Member; Arkansas Bar Foundation, Board of Directors; Arkansas Supreme Court Board of Legal Specialization, Chair; Arkansas Bar Association: Fellow, Chair of Labor Law, House of Delegates, Golden Gavel Award; American Bar Association Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity Law, Labor Section; American Bar Association College of Labor and Employment Law, Fellow; Pulaski County Bar Association; Chambers USA; The Best Lawyers in America-Woodward/White; Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Lawyer Rating; Mid-South Super Lawyers; Arkansas Continuing Legal Education, Best of CLE; Who's Who in American Law, of Emerging Leaders in America, in Finance and Industry, in the South and Southwest.Tim's passion for the law manifested in everything he did. On the courtroom floor he was a master of rhetoric; everywhere else a Shakespearean orator in-progress with index cards for sonnet memorization in hand. He was a man steadfast in love for his family as well as his work. Discarded trial evidence boards served as canvases for weekend-long father-daughter painting sessions. Only when smearing paint on faces or cooking his post-Saturday-mass shrimp could he be caught without his signature bow tie. To honor Tim's deep-seated belief in equal access to justice and in the dignity of all persons, please consider these organizations in lieu of flowers.

Or, Central Arkansas Library System, CALS Foundation, 100 Rock St, Little Rock, AR 72201, www.cals.org/giving.The family will have a private internment. Once circumstances allow, family and friends will be invited to gather and raise a Hendrick's G&T to this beautiful man. From his altar boy days to attending his daughters' every school mass, Tim's Irish Catholic faith, especially the rosary, supported him. His family received a daily text that he had prayed a rosary for them. Until we can celebrate Tim's life together, we hope you will take a moment at noon on Monday, July 13 to find similar comfort in saying a prayer or rosary for Tim..
Just became aware of Tim's passing. My condolences to the family and close friends. My relationship with Tim was professional and I and some of my colleagues at GHD had the chance to travel all over the country and work along side Tim doing the work he loved (helping his clients with workplace health and safety). Tim was always a delight to be around and we enjoyed his company and stories of New Orleans and Pine Bluff immensely. Very sad for all who knew him and worked with him. He leaves some big shoes to fill in the AR legal community. Rest in peace Tim. It was a pleasure knowing you.
Dearest Susan and the Sweeties:My heartfelt condolences for your loss of your husband and father. When I heard, I was shocked and greatly sadden as I knew we had lost a most excellent attorney, but also an exemplary man. He sat the bar high and broke the mold. It genuinely was my pleasure to work for him for all those many years. I learned so very much from him.Every day is a holiday,Every meal is a feast,Every line is a formation,Every formation is a parade!Again, my heartfelt condolences to you all.Lana
Dear Boe Family -- When Tim & I were young, we toiled in the Pine Bluff, Ark. courts and became friends. I've spent a lifetime observing this man, who I can say without reservation, was very bright as well as admirable. What made him so successful was not just his legal abilities but his kindnesses, Tim's thoughtfulness, loyalty to his friends and his understanding ways were well noted. He was a good man and I shall miss crossing paths with him. (The actor, Matthew Broderick would be honored to say he resembled such a fine attorney.)
Susan--tho it has been many years since seeing Tim, my fond memories of our friendship have lasted the test of time.. My deepest regrets to you and the girls. Ed Passini
Susan,I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for you and the girls during this difficult time. I pray for comfort and peace. He will certainly be missed. I always enjoyed when he came in with that warm smile and when he would come in with flowers from "his bride". May he rest in peace!
Susan,My deepest condolences to you and the girls. You are in my prayers, Mindy Stewart
Susan, I am so sorry for your loss of your precious husband Tim. Myheart goes out to Vivian and Elaine Ruth as well. You and Tim have been such loving parents. I know that you are all aware he loves you still.
Susan, Elaine & Vivian, I am so sorry for your loss. Tim was such a great guy. I had the pleasure of meeting him in a case where we were on opposite sides. We became friends upon discovering that we were both swimmers. He was the kind of lawyer that I always aspire to be -smart, talented, and compassionate. Add funny with a great wit and you have Tim Boe.It was from the U of A Law School Alumni letter that I learned of his passing. I immediately prayed a rosary for him and you. Peace,Butch

Susan, you and your family are in my thoughts and in my prayers. My rosary will be offered for Tim. God bless you all.
Tim was a good friend to me and I miss him.
I didn't know Tim's family, as my relationship with him was based on his using me as his railroad expert for the past several years. Tim did talk about his daughters from time to time, and I know he was very proud of them and much in love with them and his wife.I cherished the time I got to spend with Tim whenever the occasion permitted it, and knew him to be a man of honor and integrity. I will miss him, and sorrowful for his family in their time of grief. God Bless
Tim was a superstar lawyer but more than that he was a superstar human who knew what was important in life and cherished it; his family was his greatest treasure.
Chloe and I are so sorry for your loss. We will be thinking of you all in the days ahead.
Dear Susan, Elaine Ruth and Vivian,We are deeply saddened by the passing of Tim. We are comforted in knowing that he was surrounded by his girls during his last days. We have many good memories of times together, and we regret that we were not aware that he was not well. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I pray that we will be able to celebrate his life when we are able to gather. In the meantime, we are sending you hugs of comfort. We know your faith will be a source of comfort to you during these times. With our love,Mildred, James and Sonia Helen.
Sending so much love to to the Boe family. I feel honored reading about such a wonderful person. I know he is so proud of you, Vivian.
Rest in Peace, brother Boe.
