William James Boswell

Date of Death: May 16, 2023


William (Bill) Boswell March 15, 1948 – May 16, 2023

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Bill Boswell, a devoted husband, loving father, and doting grandpa. He fought a brave battle against cancer but peacefully left us on May 16th, 2023.

Bill was a devoted and caring husband to Cheryl, his partner and best friend for 48 years. Their love was an inspiration to all who witnessed it—a testament to the strength and endurance of a deep, unwavering bond. They navigated life’s joys and challenges together, supporting each other with unwavering love and devotion.
As a father, Bill was an exceptional role model and a source of unwavering support and love. His children, Krystal and Bradley, were the light of his life, and he took great pride in watching them grow and achieve their dreams. Unfortunately Bradley passed away in 2017. As a grandpa, Bill showered his grandchildren with affection, laughter, and endless love. He cherished every moment spent with them, creating treasured memories that will be cherished forever by Brooke and Pyper

Bill was an exceptional man, known for his unwavering integrity, kindness, and sense of humor. He possessed a brilliant mind and a remarkable work ethic, excelling in his career of real estate. His dedication and passion for his work were evident to all, and he inspired countless colleagues throughout his professional journey.

A celebration of Bill’s life will be held in the Fall and in lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made to Penticton Hospice or Canadian Diabetes Foundation.

Cheryl and Krystal, I’m so sorry for your loss. Billy was a great man and is greatly missed.

From: Dave Brown

To a truly unique person, you will be missed Bill. I enjoyed our daily coffees and your intensity. Some great fishing trips together on the island for steelhead and salmon. There were many laughs. Your energy was unsurpassed.

On the drive back, after a steelheading trip, we rolled the truck on the Hope Princeton after hitting black ice. You were hanging upside down by your seatbelt. There was a semi on his horn hard and we could see his headlights and jack knifed truck sliding our way down the hill. We scrambled to get out. I hit your seat belt release and you landed on top of me and used me as your step ladder to climb out the window. Watching that semi slide past our vehicle missing it by a few feet was quite the experience. as we sat on the snow bank we had climbed up in a panic.

In typical Bozzie fashion you watched that semi slide by and said, in a dead calm voice “that was interesting” .

You will be missed by many as you were truly unique Bill.

God bless you and your family.
