BOSTOCK – Raymond

1927 – 2011

 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and dear friend, Ray Bostock.  Ray was born in Kelowna on January 7, 1927, the son of Albert (Bert) and Ellen Bostock.  He passed away on July 11, 2011.  Ray was predeceased by his parents, his brother Ken and his sisters Dorothy and Joyce.  He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years Ann, and his four children (all living in the Kelowna area).  Sarah (Randy) Roberts, Bruce (Dawn) Bostock, Dan (Reta) Bostock and Jim (Laurie) Bostock, eight grandchildren, Heather (Evan) Eccles, Travis (Kimi) Klettke, Jerrod (Adrienne) Klettke, Jeffrey, Rachel, Spencer, Sydney Bostock and Jordan Roberts as well as his pride and joy – five great grandchildren, Joshua, Emmalee, Deacon, Calista and Levi.  Ray was an avid outdoorsman and an accomplished oarsman as a young man.  He won many, many championships, and, thanks to the support of the local community, was awarded the “Hector MacDonald Memorial Award” and named the “British Columbia Athlete of the Year” in 1952.  Ray owned and operated “Superior Floors” in Kelowna for over 40 years and spent his spare time fishing, hunting, rowing, snowmobiling and waterskiing.  His greatest pleasure was enjoying family and friends at “the cabin” at Oyama Lake.  Ray was known for his generosity, caring and his sense of humour; which will not soon be forgotten!  Funeral Service for Ray will be held at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, on Saturday, July 16, 2011 at 4:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers, and those wishing to honour Ray’s memory, may make a donation to the “Ray Bostock Memorial Bursary” c/o The Central Okanagan Bursary and Scholarship Society, #1-616 KLO Road, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 4X4 to be presented annually to students graduating from a school located in School District #23.   Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
