Glenn Leroy Boswell

March 14, 1926 - Dec. 28, 2016

Glenn Boswell was born on March 14, 1926, in Park Hill, Oklahoma to Harry and Susie Boswell. He passed away peacefully on December 28, 2016, with his family by his side. Glenn was a decorated veteran of WWII. He returned to California after the war and married Velma Worley on May 14, 1946, and they raised three children together. A successful and gregarious salesman, he became a Real Estate Broker in the 1960’s and owned Port Realty in Stockton with his wife.

He was very proud of his heritage and often shared that he was the great-grandson of Cherokee Chief John Ross. He loved inventing, seemed able to fix most anything, and built or remodeled many houses. Education was important to him and he never stopped learning new things and sharing his skills. He had a quick wit and a keen sense of humor. He was an active member of his church until his health declined.

Glenn is preceded in death by his wife, Velma, son, Garry, a brother and three sisters. He is survived by his children, Jeanette Boswell and Cheryl Boswell-Barnes, daughter-in-law, Barbara Boswell, sister, Maxine Scott, 8 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and much-loved nieces, nephews and friends.
