Ray Allen Bostwick
July 8, 1951 – October 27, 2014
Ray Bostwick, 63, of Port Orchard, WA, passed away on Monday, October 27, 2014.
It is with wet eyes and a heart of lead that I end my day. Today I say my final, silent goodbyes to my cribbage partner of three decades; to the strongest, most courageous man I have ever known.
He was steady, loyal, respectful, stubborn, defied authority, had a heart of gold, a love for animals, and an unbreakable devotion to whatever he saw as his duty.
When I asked him if there was anything he wanted to do, anywhere he wanted to go, he told me no. "Sit with me, talk with me, play cribbage with me," he said, "and remember me when I'm gone." These things I have done; the last I shall do.
I love you, Dad. I miss you.
Ray is survived by his wife Sue, daughter Shannon, granddaughter Jhordan, and by his sisters Susan and Anne.
