Tanglewood Cinema was also destroyed by fire.

The facility was constructed back as Happy J Skating Rink.

The facility is now Tanglewood Events Center.

Boze also enjoyed singing and was a member of the Cousinaires gospel music group which included Jack Dillehay, Robby King Swann, Harold Halliburton and Joe Hiett as pianist.
