School Story:

I envy PHS 1960 grads who grew up together with lifetime friends in Provo. The Valentine family moved to Provo during my junior year at Provo High, but I found PHS to be a safe place, and I cherish the friendships with many PHS classmates.

Voit Roper kicked me out of his English class during my senior year because I was (and still am) a smart aleck. (I later apologized to him years later while courting Shauna in his and her LDS Ward in Orem.)

Happy Birthday Judy. We did not know each other very well in high school. I had grown up in Palo Alto, CA and Buenos Aires, Argentina before returning for one year at Orem High and two years at Provo High. I was and still am a little jealous of you Provo kids who were life-long schoolmates and friends, but I very much enjoy tracking our lives through the years. The loss of Richard Anderson and John Boswell so recently has an impact on all of us. Last February I had a little flutter in my chest and ended up with five bypasses. We are so blessed to have modern medicine, aren't we? Happy Birthday to you this year of 2017 and have a prosperous New Year. Bob and Shauna Valentine, Highland, UT.

Obituary for John Wallace Boswell

John W. Boswell Jr. passed away on December 12, 2017 due to complications from Parkinson’s disease.

Born in Provo, Utah he was the son of J. Wallace Boswell and Edda Margaret Jones Boswell. He married his sweetheart, Nancy Nielsen on September 1, 1961 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

John attended Provo High School, the College of Eastern Utah and Brigham Young University. After graduation from BYU, John and Nancy moved to California where John worked for Phillips Petroleum Company and Ortho Pharmaceutical. After 11 years in California, John accepted a job in Price, Utah at the College of Eastern Utah. Following three years at CEU, John accepted a position to work at the University of Utah. During his career at the “U” he worked as the Director of High School and Prospective Student Services, the Director of Campus Recreation, the Registrar and the Director of Admissions.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he served in many different church positions including Scout Master, High Councilor, High Priest Group Leader, Bishop of the Union 27th Ward, and Stake Executive Secretary in the Sandy Utah Cottonwood Creek Stake. He treated every calling as if it were the most important. He always served with a smile.

An important part of John’s career and life was his role as a mentor. His caring interest in others was invaluable to many he worked with over the years.

John also enjoyed many pastimes and interests with family and good friends including golf, fishing, game nights, and organizing a large baseball card collection.

John and his sweetheart Nancy served a full-time mission from 2007-2008 at the Laie, Hawaii Temple Visitor’s Center. They also served together for a summer at the Hill Cumorah Pageant and as Church Service Missionaries at the Bishop’s Storehouse in Sandy, Utah.

He is survived by his wife, Nancy Nielsen Boswell; sister, Margo Boswell Trotter (Paul); three sons and one daughter: John Wallace III (Susan), Angela (David) Osborne, Gregory Stanley (Michelle) and Michael Chad (Michelle). He is also survived by 26 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, J. Wallace Boswell and Edda Margaret Jones Boswell and his sister, Dana Boswell Ellertson (Richard Lee).

We express our deep appreciation to Dr. John Steffens and the conscientious caregivers at Silverado Hospice. 

Funeral services will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at the South Jordan Utah Parkway stake center located at 9894 S. 2700 W. South Jordan, UT. Friends may call at the stake center on Friday, December 15 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and on Saturday, December 16 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. prior to the funeral service. Interment will be in the Provo City Cemetery. To send condolences, please visit www.bergmortuary.com.

From Emma Lou Jones in California.  She sent this email today,

Sorry to hear about John, he was such a great guy.  His dad was my Bishop and John was one of my ward and school friends. Also in our ward was Marilyn Miller, Ira Price, the MacArthur family, the Zabriski twins, the Christensen sisters, Jenny Lynn Weight, and others I seem to have forgotten, but never John Boswell!

Shauna and I and our kids and grandkids pray for the citizens of California in their terrible fire situation. We all just spent a week together at Pelican Bay Hill resort two weeks ago.

Bob Valentine, Dennis Payne, Dave Madsen, Patti Murphy Florence and Gary Stott at Richard Anderson's memorial service on December 2, 2017 in Murray.  Carol Ann Day was there, too, busy receiving relatives and friends.  Richard's daughter Jan Anderson gave a fascinating and detailed account of his life.  We met many relatives and friends.  Richard's remains will be buried later in a private ceremony.
