Obituary of Alvin Henry Boenker III

Alvin Henry Boenker III, founder of The Al Boenker Insurance Agency, Inc. and other insurance platforms, passed away on March 29, 2024, after decades of building family, friendship, and enterprise.

"My father was a larger-than-life character who was loved by those close to him and those he met in passing," shared his son and ABI / Alinsco Chairman Al Boenker IV. "He was the living example of a Texas gentleman with a gracious spirit and a heart the size of Texas. The personality millions saw in his TV commercials over five decades was the man he was at all times."

Al passed away surrounded by family after a short illness. He is survived by his son, Al Boenker IV and daughter-in-law Gloria Boenker; daughter, Ashley Osborn and son-in-law Byron Osborn; and grandchildren, Joelie, Oaklie, Quinlie, Cameron, Cole and Trigger.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Sue Nell Boenker, and his grandson, Al Boenker V.

Al was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. He attended Castleberry High School and married the love of his life, Sue Boenker on December 5, 1970.

Al Boenker opened his insurance agency in September of 1972 in Fort Worth, Texas, on Jacksboro Highway and built an insurance organization that included an agency, a managing general agency, and an insurance company serving Texas. He also founded a corporation in Mexico serving the Republic of Mexico. His wife, Sue Boenker, built one of the largest Allstate agencies in the United States.

Al loved his grandchildren deeply. He listened to Christmas music all year long and carried the joy of the season with him at all times.

His faith in Jesus Christ was the pivot point of all he said and did in life.

“My mom and dad were a wonderful example of godly marriage. Their example of loving God first, family second, and then others was a foundation in our home. They had loving hearts and cared for people and taught us to do the same,” said daughter Ashley Osborn.
