Dennis W. Boswell “BOZ”

Dennis W. Boswell passed away at Methodist North Hospital Saturday, December 5, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents, Warren and Patricia Boswell and his sister, Lynn Boswell Wilson. He leaves his wife Phyllis, brother Gary (Marilyn), daughters Karen Boswell Spiva (Ben), Shiloh Nicole Boswell, bonus sons Trey Friend (Brittany), Will Friend (Anna), AJ Friend (Michaela), 2 grandsons Jake and Ryan, 6 granddaughters Natalie, Ryleigh, Ellie, Bethany, Astryd and Merida.

He was a Marine and a patriot who loved God, his family and his country and was willing to give his life for any of them. For most of his life he was involved in law enforcement and fire services. He was also a history enthusiast for his entire life and was passionate about history preservation. His greatest accomplishment was finished in November of this year when he completed and opened his own military history museum, “Flight Line Museum”. It was a lifelong dream of his that he was able to accomplish.

He loved his family with all his heart and never hesitated to respond when called upon. He was so proud when Jake joined the ROTC program at college and began his journey into serving his country in his “Paw’s” footsteps. He was proud of Natalie for being an Honors student at Bartlett High School. He was also proud of his younger grandchildren as well and had high hopes for their successes in life. Most of all he was a dog lover and loved his 5 fur babies more than anything. They were the light of his life and he doted on them as well as the grandchildren. They will miss him greatly as we all will.

He was the light of his wife’s life as well. Even though it took them a long time to find each other, they both knew that they were meant to be together and had many things yet to do. He will be greatly missed there as well.

Dennis was one in a million, he was one of the finest men I have ever known. I met him over forty years ago and after you got through that tough marine exterior you found a loving caring man. We had many fun times hunting and fishing and I will miss him greatly. Love you brother.
