James Irwin Bostian 20230814

Glenn Foster   · Class of 75. We have lost our classmate and friend James Irwin Bostian today. I just received the news from his sister. He was the music talent I got to share with, the church brother to many of us and team mates on way to many courts to mention, and I’ll always remember his Gibson guitar under his arm sitting as we played, his red curly hair on his shoulders with his glasses reflecting the music pages we were playing. He has had neurology problems for many years and I was told he just didn’t respond this morning to his care giver and passed away. Rest in peace my friend; Always Class of 75.

Marisa Riddle Rodgers Praying for his family. Such a great guy!🙏🏼🥲

Tim Bost Glenn, thanks for letting us know. I wasn’t aware of his illness. He wrote “Fearless Leader” beside a picture of himself in my yearbook. That I believe he was. I too remember his long red curly hair, in my opinion, his trademark. And what a sense of humor. His passing reminds me of the closer impending demise of the great class of ‘75. Let the remainder of us cherish every memory and take advantage of every opportunity to re-connect when we have a chance to again be with the ones that were part of that great class. Peace to his family and friends. May God bring them solace as we lift them up in prayer. Tim
