KEVIN flew away from us on Friday August 10, 2007 in Tucson, Arizonia at Tucson Medical Center with his Mother, Father, Brother, Sister & very special friends by his bedside. He was born in Wichita, Kansas and left us at the young age of 37 years old.  However, he had traveled & seen more of the world than most of us will ever see due to his Air Force Career and other recent jobs.

Boswell, mother Beverly A. Boswell, Sister Janet G. Webster of Rose Hill, Ks. brother Ricky W. & wife Gina Boswell of Derby, Ks.  He also leaves behind three nieces & one nehpew; Carly & Devin Boswell, Mackenzie & Makayla Webster who loved him very much.

I met Kevin on in Texas.  He was a wonderful, handsome and fun filled guy to be around.  He enjoyed hanging with Lori...I remember them coming to my office in that Mercedes convertable on a summer day to tell me they were headed to Fort Worth for the day, and how cute they looked with wind in their hair and smiles on their faces.

I can't believe my shock today when I randomly decided to google some old friends to see what they were up to and discovered that Kevin was no longer here. He and I were close friends and on-again, off-again sweethearts for about 10 years. I feel so lucky to have had him in my life while I did. I really loved him and have nothing but fond memories of Kevin. While our lives ultimately took us in different directions, we always cared for one another and remained on good terms.


In 1995, I spent a month with Kev in Germany and we had so much fun. I met Bernie, and of course Cobolt on that trip. I know some friends are now taking care of Cobolt and I am glad he has a good home. Kevin loved that cat! We took many sight seeing excursions around Germany, Luxembourg and also Brussels. He also visited me in Texas many times. I will look for photos to post in the coming weeks.


For everyone out there who loved Kevin, my prayers are with you. We will all miss him.

Today would have been Bos' 39th birthday. I'm spending part of the day remembering him fondly, looking at photos, and thinking of all the fun adventures we had. He came to visit us here in Monterey a while back, and if he were here today, we'd be at the beach for sure!  Fun ~ Sun ~ Laughter


Happy Birthday in Heaven Kevin!!!

I retired from the USAF in 1992 after 30 years and went into the insurance and investment business.  In 1995, my company asked me to go to Germany and I agreed as long as I could go back to Spangdahlem where I'd been the Base Commander in the 80's.  I met Kevin, probably on the golf course and we became great friends.  We played golf together a lot and spent our share of time on the 19th hole.  I guess the best moment came when we were playing the German course near Bitburg and on a par 3, The Boz got a hole in one.  Needless to say, the clubhouse made money on him that afternoon.  His German improved significantly that afternoon as everyone on the course came by to congratulate him.  One of my other neat memories is of him having my wife and myself over to his apartment where he cooked us a great dinner accompanied by fine German wine.  Kevin was a truly special young man and although there was a 30 year difference in ages, it was like having another son.  I know he's looking down on his Mom and telling her not to worry.

I was also stationed with "Boz" in Crete. He always had an easy smile and a great attitude. The group of friends from Crete probably still quote Boz’s greatest lines. He always had the perfect thing to say. When all of us female airmen were (as Boz said, yapping) He told us to stop yapping. We did for a few seconds and started back up again, so Boz said, "Shut up, shutting up." I dragged home two cats from Crete as well. Since I lived in the dorms, I used to have to bring them into the warehouse to run around. I always caught Boz playing with them. I'm sure they're probably descendants of Bob the Cat as well. The thought of Boz will always bring a smile to my face. Cheers to you.

My deepest condolences.  May these few words from the Holy Scriptures bring you comfort in your time of grief...

John 11:32-45

32 And so Mary, when she arrived where Jesus was and caught sight of him, fell at his feet, saying to him: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping and the Jews that came with her weeping, groaned in the spirit and became troubled; 34 and he said: “Where have YOU laid him?” They said to him: “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus gave way to tears. 36 Therefore the Jews began to say: “See, what affection he used to have for him!” 37 But some of them said: “Was not this [man] that opened the eyes of the blind man able to prevent this one from dying?”

38 Hence Jesus, after groaning again within himself, came to the memorial tomb. It was, in fact, a cave, and a stone was lying against it.39 Jesus said: “TAKE the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it is four days.”40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Therefore they took the stone away. Now Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but on account of the crowd standing around I spoke, in order that they might believe that you sent me forth.” 43 And when he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Laz´a·rus, come on out!” 44The [man] that had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his countenance was bound about with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Loose him and let him go.”

45 Therefore many of the Jews that had come to Mary and that beheld what he did put faith in him;

To the Boswell Family,

My sincerest condolences to you all, and my prayers are with you for what must be the most difficult time in your lives.

I was stationed in Crete with Kevin, and remember him as being kind hearted and incredibly sweet.  I recently re-established contact with a few of the people we were stationed with while on Crete, and we were all wondering where Kevin was.

 I am truly sorry to hear this news, and wish you all the peace that can only come from knowing that your son and brother now walks with God. 

God Bless you all, and keep you-

Ida and Tom Gallardo On-On Kevin August 27, 2007

Tom and I met Kevin in Kuwait. Kevin and I worked together in the same warehouse for different companies.  As I was new to Logistics, Kevin was a lifesaver with all the assistance he provided.  Kevin also lived in the same apartment building, so you might say Kevin, Tom and I spent 24 hours a day together.  At the end of my employment in Kuwait, we went all out and went to Dubai with Kevin.  We splurged by staying at an elite Golfing Country Club.  We dont golf, but we wanted to stay at the same hotel so we could spend more time together with Kevin.  As anyone that knows Kevin, we had a great time with him!


We were lucky to have Cobalt come and live with us in Sierra Vista, Arizona.  He was a bit lost the first two days, but now he owns the place!  He sleeps under our bed and has a lot of space to wander safely outside.  We know he still misses Kevin as much as everyone else, but Colbalt is adjusting very well.  If I can post some pictures of Cobalt at his new home I will.


Kevin, we keep you alive in our thoughts and miss you.  Tom and Ida Gallardo
