Richard G. “Rick” Bosse, 62, of Peabody, died at home, attended by his wife, Deborah A. (Moreau) Bosse, on July 23, 2017, following an unexpected battle with an aggressive form of cancer.
Born and raised in Salem, Mass., he was the son of the late Arthur W. and Carmel M. (Madore) Bosse. A graduate of Salem High, Class of 1972, he attended Essex Agricultural and Technical Institute where he studied forestry. He also graduated from the General Electric Machine Apprentice Program as all around machinist. Rick worked for 37 years at the GE Aircraft Division at the Riverworks plant in Lynn. He worked various product lines as a machinist, ending with the last 10 years as a PC work inspector and machinist.
Rick was an avid sports fan of the Boston Red Sox, Celtics and N.E. Patriots. He and his wife and team-partner were serious Tournament Bass Fishermen in both Federated & Casual Clubs in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for over 16 years. Together they fished the entire New England area. He also belonged to several Candlepin Bowling leagues for 10 years. A man of many interests, Rick enjoyed traveling, the outdoors, hiking, camping, snowmobiling, and tennis. His hobbies were gardening, genealogy, CB Radio, music, and crafting cigar box guitars.
In addition to his wife, Deborah, together since 1976, he leaves a brother, Norman A. Bosse of Centerville, Va.; two nieces, Pamela Baet and Erin Bosse of Winchester, Va.; a grandniece, and three grandnephews.
