Obituary for Sergei Thomas Bolen

Sergei Thomas Bolen died September 30, 2017. Sergei was born in the Vladimir Region of
Russia and moved to the United States in 1998. He graduated Farragut High School in May
2004, and joined the US Marine Corp. He was a Corporal in the USMC and served multiple combat tours in Iraq and elsewhere, and was a member of the 4th Marine Expeditionary Brigade/Anti-Terrorism Battalion, STA/Weapons Platoon, Bravo Company, out of Camp Le Jeune. He received numerous service ribbons and commendations, including a Combat Action Ribbon (Iraq), Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and National Defense Service Medal. He held a Rifle (Expert) and Pistol (Marksman) Qualification Badge, and received an honorable discharge from service in 2008. Sergei earned an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice in 2011.

Sergei is survived by his natural brother, Samuel Alexander Bolen, and his wife Svetlana, and
niece (Sarah) and nephew (Leone); his mother, Jennifer Bolen, and adoptive father, Forrest
Pardue, and extended family siblings Phillip and Mary Pardue; his grandparents, Don and Jan
Bolen, and aunt Janelle Bolen Sideris (fondly known as “Jelly”) and her family, husband George,
and their son, Nikos.

Sergei is also survived by his combat brothers, Richard Caldwell of Knoxville, TN, Corporal Honorable Discharge, First Battalion, First Marines, and Sergeants Baltimore, Beard, Campbell, Pickett, Snyder, and Watkins; Corporals Abraham, Algas, College, Cook and Milles; and Doc HM3 Askew.

Sergei lived a simple life and was known as a trusted friend to so many. His mother fondly
referred to him as her “Sero Bug”, whose only dream when she met him in Russia was to be a
US Marine. You made it honey. You are loved and will be greatly missed.
