(BEAVERTON, Ore.) - Russ was born in Exchange, West Virginia on March 15, 1925.

He answered his nation's call for service when he enlisted in the Army in March of 1943, where he served in Northern Africa and Italy.

Russ moved his family to Oregon in 1968 where most remain in the greater Portland area. He loved working in the antique bussiness and was a well respected furniture refinisher known for the quality of his work. He was an amazing husband, the world's greatest Dad, and a remarkable Papap to his Grand Children and Great Grand Children. Russ is survived by his wife of 58 years, Arlyn; his four daughters Teri, Darlene, Karin and Sandy; his two sons, Jerry and Michael; 17 Grand Children, and 21 Great Grand Children.

A celebration of Russ' life will be held on April 1st from 1:00 - 4:00 P.M. at Mcmenamins Grand Lodge, 3505 Pacific Ave in Forest Grove.

Russ Bosley passed away peacefully while surrounded by his family on March 27 in Beaverton.

Russ' life is defined by his favorite expression: To love and to be loved is the greatest joy on Earth. His family returns the message, "We all love you!"

I am so sadly going to miss my "Favorite Uncle".  I loved him with all my heart and always will. He was the kindest most wonderful man I have ever known.  He & Aunt Arlyn could always make me smile. I will forever be "his Angel".  Love & prayers to Aunt Arlyn (My Big Sis) & family....Susie
