August 31, 1962July 7, 2020

Manchester, ME - Bryan Arthur Bosse passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 6th, 2020.

He was born in Lewiston to Roger and Pauline Bosse on August 31, 1962. Growing up Bryan enjoyed playing baseball and hockey with family and many friends and graduated from Lewiston High School as a member of the hockey team. He was a Master Carpenter, taking great pride in his work. Bryan worked and lived with a tireless passion, earning him the nickname TAZ.

He loved the outdoors, whether it was riding his motorcycle, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, boating, or more recently touring in his Z4. He had special memories of his time spent with family and friends at Northeast Carry on Moosehead Lake, a place he truly loved. Bryan had a huge personality that was accompanied with a big and generous heart. His unbridled spirit will be missed by all.

Bryan is survived by his daughter, Kyra Bosse and fiancee Mike Rawstron; mother Pauline Bosse; brothers John and Nancy Bosse and Mike and Helen Bosse; sister Carol and Bill Pelletier; his ex-wife and friend, Kim Ricker; his beloved dog, Woodstock; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Roger Bosse.

A celebration of life will be planned at a later date.

A devoted father, brother and son who loved his family above all for sure. How could you not hear it in his "voice". Fond memories of Bike Week and camping at Gunstock Mountain. A personality bigger than the White Mountains themselves. God Bless Kyra and family.
With sympathy,
Mike Voisine and family

So many great memories growing up together with the cousins. Lots of fun times at my parent's pool, lighting up the old charcoal grill, and watching fireworks. I will miss his smile and big personality! He was taken way too soon. Sending hugs to the whole family.

Bryan was a free spirit who lived and worked hard his entire life. He was taken from us way too soon and each of us will miss his loud gravel voice and generous heart. He was a toasted marshmallow with a crusty exterior but soft & mushy on the inside who truly loved his family which was demonstrated in a variety of ways over the years. A caring son and compassionate brother, he can now rest in peace with Dad until we meet again.

The Bosse family would like to send their sincere appreciation to all who have sent cards, calls, flowers and comments on Facebook and this memorial page. Your condolences/thoughts/prayers have meant so much to Mom, John, Mike, Carol & our extended family, more than you know.

Rest in peace son/brother.


Mom, John, Mike & Carol

My deepest sympathies and condolences to Carol and the entire Bosse family. There were so many fun times with Bryan. His presence was always known. My fondest memories were at Tim Tardiff’s Barn, 494, Stevie’s house and countless Impromptu social gatherings spread out around L/A. Rest easy Bryan.

Gone way too soon my friend. Way too many memories. I can hear your voice "WOODY" . And of course my daughter had to be born on your birthday, just so I would never forget you. Rest in peace my crazy friend. See you on the other side. We can ride Harleys again. (find a good road)
