On Saturday, February 4, Charles (Buddy) Boswell, beloved husband , father and papa passed away suddenly at the age of 57.

They married in August 1988 and had two daughters.
Buddy, as most of his friends and family knew him as, spent many years working in the kitchen as a cook, did roofing, and many other jobs before starting his own handyman/ lawn business in 2000.
He was a man of many talents. He could fix and do anything. And always had a lending hand to help.
Buddy was a simple man. He loved spending his time fishing, hunting and gardening. He loved time with his family and hosting Sunday family dinners. He looked forward to picking up his grand babies from school. They were his pride and joy. He loved his football SF 49er’s and the words “You were right.”

I’ve finished life’s chores assigned to me,
So put me in a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole,
For I’ve been invited to the fish in’ hole.
Where everyday is a day to fish
To fill my heart with every wish
Don’t worry, or feel sad for me
We will miss each other for awhile,
But you will come and bring your smile.
That won’t be long, you will see
To all of those who think of me
Be happy as a go out to sea
If others wonder why I’m missing
Just tell them I’ve Gone Fishin’
To send flowers
to the family or plant a tree
