Gary Ralston Boss, aged 76 years, of Black River Road, Springhill, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, March 9, 2018. Born in Springhill, he was the son of Evelyn (Skidmore) Boss, Springhill, and the Late Eldon Boss. Gary will be forever remembered as a kind-hearted and gentle man, who loved his family more than anything else.

Gary retired as a Chief Warrant Officer from a proud military career, starting with the Royal Canadian Navy in April 1959, and ending with the Canadian Armed Forces in November 1992. Gary loved to regale everyone with tales of his time in the service, where he did everything from working on planes and helicopters, to dismantling and exploding bombs. He also loved old country music, western movies, spending time at his camp, and just being in the woods hunting and fishing. Gary is survived by his son, Troy (Karen) Boss of Moncton, NB; mother Evelyn (Skidmore) Boss, Springhill; sister Diana (Chuck) of BC; and brother Carman (Mirna) Boss of SK. He was predeceased by his wife Sylvia Boss, and son Robin Boss, both of Springhill. Cremation has taken place. As per Gary’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral. A meeting and celebration of Gary’s life will take place for close family and friends at a later date. Gary will be laid to rest with his wife and son in Rodney Cemetery, Cumb. Co., also at a later date. Dad, you will be so loved and missed by me and all of your family. I love and miss you, Mum, and Rob more than words can say, and I think of you all every day. I hope you are all together now and in peace. Thank you, Dad, for all you did for me over the years. You were the best Dad in the world.
