Obituary of Richard Edward Boschen Jr.


Rick Boschen passed away on April 6, 2024.   We received this message on April 8 from Rick's family. 

"I wanted to let you know that Rick went to heaven last week after being in Jupiter Medical Center ICU for a week. He treasured all of his high school friendships and loved the reunions.    Susan."


Rick was one of our class's most energetic organizers -- always eager to send out hundreds of postcards to encourage classmates to come to reunions and get together with old friends. The newspaper clippings that Rick posted to our website told of his involvement in community activities and worthwhile causes, and reminded us that there are plenty of good ways to spend our days.
