We meet David and Rhonda in Clovis, NM were we encouraged each other in our new adventure of home schooling our kids. Rhonda and I also started a home school support group together. David worked hard so that Rhonda could be a stay-at-home mother. Rhonda, your encouragement during my early years of home schooling helped to ground me so that I was able to home school until they went to college! Thank you for being a close and dear friend during those years. I miss you! Contact me through my email when you are able. Love you bunches! Your Sister in the Lord, Kathy Butcher

Rhonda and family, know that you are in our hearts and prayers today and always. We met the Boswell family while stationed at Cannon AFB in Clovis, NM. We homeschooled our children together and found great love and support from this dear family. I respected David in all that he did. He was a man of honor and for that reason, he leaves a great legacy in and through his family. Be blessed today with the love and grace of God and may His spirit bring you comfort and peace.

My condolences to his family. David and I worked at the City of Sarasota in different departments, but our paths would often cross in the lunchroom and we would chat. I remember some of our conversations in which David would give his recommendations on where to find a great steak dinner along the west coast of Florida.

I heard about his passing but, honestly could not believe it was true until I saw this. In fact, there was a version without his picture and I still could not accept it. Now that I see an obituary with his picture, it has finally sunk in. Rhonda, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I am at a loss for words. My prayers to you and the family. Dave - you would be happy to know that I went back and obtained that Bachelor's Degree! RIH my friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

David was a gentleman. He was generous, charming, and kind. He made sure to invite me to lunch a few times a year, and made sure I had phone coverage in the office. He was one of our Making Strides Against Breast Cancer team (The Sarasota Sue Crew) biggest supporters. Missing him terribly. Condolences to his loving family.

You will be missed my dear friend. You were a delight to work with for four years. Words escape me but there is a void that will live with those you touched. My prayers are with Rhonda and you children. Rest in peace my friend. Love Tammy

I just heard about David passing away. I am so sorry for your family's loss. My sincere condolences. I worked with David quite a bit over his 9 years as Purchasing Agent for the City of Clovis and always enjoyed our chats about life and military experiences. David was a great guy and the best at his job! I am glad to have known him! Rest In Peace David! Patrick Whitney

My sincere condolences to David's family. I was fortunate to have worked with Dave in Sarasota and while he was always the most competent and dedicated Purchasing Manager, he never failed to do it without at least a little bit of humor. Always willing to seize upon an opportunity, one day I left a humorous message on his phone in my deep New England accent. He found a way to turn the message into a ringtone and actually sold it on the internet! That was Dave....he will be sorely missed. I am sure he is making sure that the proper procurement procedures are being followed in his next life as well.

Dave was a genuine caring person with such a fun personality! His friendship (coworker) helped me recover and heal after a very tragic event in my life. Prayers for his family who he loved so very much! Rest in peace, bulldog! 💕

Dave "Bos" Boswell was my first State Umpire in Chief for New Mexico United Specialty Sports Association, adult slow pitch. That was 2001. He was inducted into our Hall of Fame shortly thereafter. Bos and I took the NM USSSA to record heights. He was my brother, I will miss him.

On behalf of statewide procurement pros and beyond, our deepest sympathies to David's family and friends. David presented at the FAPPO annual conference this past May along with colleague Beth Dooley and I on the value of credentials in our profession. He was passionate about this subject and the profession and had a warmth and enthusiasm that is unmatched. We are deeply saddened by the loss of David, a dear member of our professional procurement family. He will be greatly missed.
