Tribute

With great sadness, love, and profound gratitude, the family of Charlie Thomas Bostwick, 82 of Griffin, Ga, announces his passing on February 6, 2024. Tom was born on June 26, 1941 to Walter "Doug" Patrick and Pinkie McClendon in Butts County, Ga. He married the love of his life, Peggy Bass on June 25, 1960 and they spent 62 years together. They were blessed with 5 daughters. Tom retired from Sherwin-Williams. He was an accomplished craftsman who spent much of his time repairing lawn mowers and other small engines as well as cutting grass. He loved his cat Kitty Tom and his dogs Amy, Molly and especially Lucy, who dearly loved him back. He attended Abiding Love Community Church and loved Jesus.

He will be remembered for being his family's pillar, offering stability, strength, and love. He was a hard working man who always kept himself busy. He enjoyed fishing, camping, and riding horses. His favorite pastime was watching Nascar, baseball, boxing, and football; especially the Georgia Bulldogs and the Falcons. He loved Longhorns, spaghetti, pizza, bananas, and a nice cold Coca-Cola. One of his favorite sayings was "Don't worry about the mule, just load the wagon” and "How high is the water?" He would also greet you with "Hey hot rod" or "Hey rawhide.” 

He was an admired devoted grandfather and great-grandfather. He was affectionately known as "Grandaddy". He raised his grandchildren Regina, Sandi, and Brandon as if they were his own. A father they deserved but never had. He had a way of making you feel so loved and special, always telling you how pretty you are with a big smile on his face. He gave the best hugs. He enjoyed talking about his childhood and was fond of remembering yours. He was the epitome of a great father. His love for his daughters and grandchildren was unmatched and he wasn't afraid to let you know it. He was his daughter's first hero. A compassionate, well respected, protector, provider, and unflinching supporter. 

Tom was predeceased by his wife Peggy Bostwick; his parents Doug Patrick and Pinkie Patrick; daughter Paula Bostwick; sister Sara Kilgore; brother William "Pap" Bostwick; grandson Terry Brown and great-granddaughter Justice Delgado.

He is survived by his daughters Brenda and Avery Hillard, Deborah and Randall Clark, Linda and Skip Floyd, and Tommie Bostwick; granddaughters, Regina and Glen Fuentes, Christy Bowen, Sandi Bostwick, Larissa and Alec Moran, Ashley Stewart, and Shylah Murphy; grandsons, Randy McDaniel, Thomas Johnson, Matthew Floyd and Brandon Bostwick; great-grandchildren, Michael Starling, Hannah Kington, Jordan Starling, Haley and Wayne Fowler, Christopher McDaniel, Janessa Starling, Trent Yancey, Jayshaun Fuentes, Gavin Bowen, Brody Johnson, Jalen Fuentes, Angel Yancey, Natlie McDaniel, Jaliayh Fuentes, Karlie Matthews, Addyson Moran, Gracelyn Dewitt, and Hayden Dewitt; great-great grandson, Waylon Fowler; cherished nephews, Junior, Jeffery, Mark, and Chuck Bostwick.
