Obituary

Obituary for Bob Bos

Robert James Bos, Jr. of Wichita, KS passed away 29 June 2020 from complications with heart disease at the age of 75.

Robert was born in Chicago, Illinois. Bob graduated from Tuley High School in Chicago, Illinois. In 1961, he enlisted in the Army and retired after 20 years of service in Colorado Springs, CO with his wife and two children. During his Army career he was stationed at numerous locations in the U.S. and Germany. He also fought in the Vietnam conflict during 1966-1967 for which he received a purple heart. He earned numerous Army medals throughout his distinguished career. After military retirement, he worked in real estate and also in the logistics medical field. Robert (aka. Bob) was known in his personal life to be the life of the party in social gatherings telling great stories and appreciated a good joke.

Robert was a 32nd degree, Scottish Rite, Mason and Shriner and was active at most military locations. His favorite lodge was Outpost 895 in Berlin, Germany.

During his second career, and with his current spouse and four step-children since 1996, he worked as a Director of Housekeeping for nursing homes and hospitals in various locations to include: Topeka, KS; Aurora, Denver, and Colorado Springs, CO. Then he was Director for Environmental Management in VA hospitals in Fayetteville, AR and in Wichita, KS. He retired from this career in 2013. In retirement, along with his spouse, he enjoyed spending time attending estate and garage sales enjoying the hunt for that special item as well as fixing broken clocks and re-selling these items. He always took great pride in his belongings, yard, home and was continuously planning and engaging in updates to his real estate. He always left a home in better condition than he received it. Most important to him, he was patriotic and loyal to his country keeping a U.S. flag flying almost every day.

He was preceded in death by his mother Zeta Elvira (Carrier) Bos died 1987 in St. Petersburg, FL, father Robert James Bos, Sr. died 1991 in St. Petersburg, FL, brother Samuel Scarf Bos died 1977 in Chicago IL, and father-in-law, C. Wayne Hackett died 2013.

Bob was an amazing Grandpa. He was so loving, always cracking jokes, and could always find you the best deal on anything you needed. He made the best breakfast and he loved my grandma so well! Heaven truly gained someone great when you arrived. I’m so blessed God gave me 21 years with you❤️ Miss you already❤️
