He was born in Huntington Beach, CA, on May 3, 1981, son of the late Robert S. Boswell Sr.

 and his loving Mother Gale L. (Voightlander) Boswell.

 Robert loved life and loved family. He could often be found camping, boating, and enjoying the

 outdoors. His favorite holiday was Fourth of July where he would bring the sky to life with a

 Grand Finale that was remembered all year. His kind heart, protection of family, and his smiling

 humor will remain in our hearts forever. His Mother Gale would like all those who knew him to

 think of him knowing that he sends us this message (author unknown).

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me-

 When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand. That an angel came and called

 my name, and took me by the hand; The angel said, a place was ready, In Heaven far above,

 And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But when I walked through Heaven’s

 Gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at me, And told me “Welcome

 Home.” So when tomorrow starts without me, Don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you

 think of me, I’m right there in your heart.

 Surviving relatives include his Mother Gale Boswell, of Elm Creek; his beautiful

 6-year-old daughter Roree Boswell; his brothers Greg (Marlo) and Tom (Sarah), their children

 and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Robert was preceded in death by his father, Robert.
