David Allen Boser

Born: 08/31/1954 Passed:

David Allen Boser, age 65 of Canal Fulton, Ohio went home to be with our Lord on February 1, 2020, while surrounded by his family, following an extended illness. He was a Northwest graduate of ‘73.  David loved hunting, fishing, spending time outdoors, football and baseball. He probably could have played in the minors. His Canada fishing stories were epic. He took great pride in raising a garden every year, when the weather cooperated. He was quite skilled at canning foods. He enjoyed cooking, making homemade spaghetti sauce, bread and pizza. He enjoyed reading Allan Eckert books. He had an infectious sense of humor, his laugh roared in a crowd. In the 90s, he worked for Newburg and South Shore Railroad. David was a skilled welder and had a successful business, able to weld bridges and train tracks.  David was a mentor to many. President of Crystal Springs Archery Club. He became ill in May of 2010, when his appendix burst, taking him very close to death. After months, a true miracle happened – his kidneys came back on a Sunday. David regained his faith in the Lord and was baptized shortly thereafter. He was extremely proud of his Discipleship Achievement. He was a devout Christian, and nothing could challenge that. Above all, he was an amazing father. Loved by many.

David is survived by his daughter, Ssgt, USAF Patricia Boser; brother, Dale Boser; sister-in-law, Alyce Boser; nieces, Sydney and Deedra; nephew, Austin Boser; and Aunt Cora McCandless Boser.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Lyle and Esther Boser, and brother, RMCM, USCG Duane Boser.

Calling hours will be held February 20th, from 10 – 12 p.m. with funeral service to follow, at the First Baptist Church of Jackson, 8925 Strausser St. NW, Massillon, Ohio 44646.

  3. Gary Richards says:

    Dave and I have been friends from birth. I was raised next door to him and have spent countless hours with him doing anything from mechanical projects, hunting, reloading shot shells, shooting sports, enjoying antique farm tractors, discussing the Bible and developing archery skills. Dave was a people person and never met a stranger. His devastating appendicitis nine years ago was a spiritual wake-up call, after which he studied the Bible over four hours a day and had a prayer list exceeding 100 people. Dave was a special friend who will be missed for a very long time to come.

  4. Sue Fierstos says:

    Rest in the loving embrace of our Lord David. I so enjoyed catching up with you on the phone. You still owe me the bottle of champagne!

  5. Joe Sammartino says:

    I am so saddened by the loss of your father and my Brother in Christ. I had been praying regularly for Dave’s recovery, not knowing that my prayers of January 31, 2020 would be a final goodbye.

    Davey, as he called himself with me, worked so diligently at Discipleship that he even authored his own special prayer and shared it with me. I know he loved our Lord with his whole heart!

    I am very blessed to have had Davey in my life, even if it was just a few short years. Having the chance to brighten his 2019 Christmas season just a little when visiting him upon my return from a trip to Israel will be a best memory for me to hold onto. Know that he loved you beyond measure!
