Boone June: Beyond The Sunset To The Center Of The Earth


Pat Boone was born in Jacksonville, Florida, the son of Margaret (Pritchard) and Archie Altman Boone. His family moved to Nashville from Florida when Boone was two years old. His younger brother, whose professional name is Nick Todd, was also a pop singer in the 1950s and is now a church music leader.

In a 2007 interview on The 700 Club, Boone claimed that he is the great-great-great-great grandson of the American pioneer Daniel Boone. He is a cousin of two stars of western television series: Richard Boone of CBS’s Have Gun, Will Travel and Randy Boone, of NBC’s The Virginian and CBS’s Cimarron Strip.

In November 1953, shortly before he turned 19 years old, Boone married Shirley Lee Foley. They have four daughters: Cheryl Lynn, Linda Lee, Deborah Ann (better known as Debby), and Laura Gene. Starting in the late 1950s, Boone and his family were residents of Leonia, New Jersey.

In college, he primarily attended David Lipscomb College, later Lipscomb University, in Nashville. He graduated in 1958 from Columbia University School of General Studies magna cum laude and also attended North Texas State University, now known as the University of North Texas, in Denton, Texas.
