Kenneth Bostard, 1933-2014
Our dear friend Kenny Bostard passed away peacefully at his home on May 17th. His memorial service will be held at the Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport on June 22nd at 4pm, with potluck meal to follow. Robert and Jennie were able to spend the
last 6 weeks of his life caring for him at his nearby home, so that he could
die in the same manner that he lived: doing exactly what he wanted to
do. Kenny Bostard was an amazing
person, and crammed several lifetimes worth of adventures into this one.
He was an engineer, lived with gypsies in Spain while studying flamenco
guitar, he was an amazing woodworker who's first handbuilt instrument
was a harpsichord and later spent decades building a reputation as
renowned maker of harps. He lived in his own incredible handbuilt house
on a mountainside with a waterwheel for electricity. He was caring,
affectionate, and a particular brand of curmudgeon that we found very
lovable. Jennie and Robert met him while they were in high school, and during the past 5
years he became part of our family. The residents of Finney Farm are honored to have known this man,
and we will miss him very much.
