Robert "Bob" Bostwick Obituary

Robert William Bostwick, age 82, passed away on January 10th, 2024. Bob was born in Walla Walla, Washington on December 2nd, 1941, and raised in Pendleton, Oregon. He graduated from Pendleton High School  in 1959. He went on to Eastern Oregon University. In 1964, Bob was drafted into the United States Army and served honorably for two years in Gelnhausen, Germany.  After his military service, he returned home and married Janet Pugsley in 1967. Together they raised their children, Matt and Jeni, in Pendleton. 

Bob enjoyed a successful 38-year career, as Chief Program Administrator for the Federal Farm Service Agency (FSA-ASCS) serving Umatilla County.  Bob retired in 2004 and then  moved to their dream home outside of Helix, known as the Koebcke Ranch. Bob was able to call this home for the last 14 years of his life.

Bob had a deep appreciation for the outdoors and enjoyed pack trips deep into The Hells Canyon, as well as spending time at the family cabin in Meacham. He was a beekeeper, a fan of rodeo especially bull riding, Atlanta Braves, and the Seattle Mariners. He avidly supported his family in all their passions.  The simple steps from his backdoor, through his garden, the rolling poppies, and into the barn have always been his pathway to heaven. May he find eternal peace in the embrace of his heavenly sanctuary.

Bob is survived by his  wife, Janet Bostwick; his 2 children, Jennifer Bostwick and Matt Bostwick (Donna); His siblings, JoAnn McClendon (Don Bensel) and Tom Bostwick (Kandace); his 6 grandchildren, Ryan Manning (Rebecca), Justine Hively (Brandon), Olivia Furstenberg (Keenan Wright), Annie Bostwick, Bobby Bostwick and Jacob Bostwick; his 4 great grandchildren, Addalie, Raylee, Everett and Reese and the extended family members whose lives he touched. Bob is proceeded in death by his parents, James and Dolly Bostwick.
