Robert Floyd Boshers, age 90, passed away Monday, February 8, 2021, at his home in Mount Pleasant, Tennessee. Robert was born October 22, 1930, in Mount Pleasant, TN to the late Huey Gray and Ruth Crowley Boshers.

Robert is a born and bred native of Mount Pleasant Tennessee. He was just a young man when he was drafted to go serve his county with the US Army during the Korean War. He was lucky to even return at all. He found himself in a morgue after a heavy combat situation. Robert was hit multiple times and pronounced dead, only to be found alive in the morgue 12 hours later. That wasn't Robert's only close call in his life, he was in a bad wreck in his truck and had fallen from a tree while tree topping. Robert received a purple heart for his heroism. Robert never seemed to have fear of anything, he was a tough person that has seen many trials. After he returned from Korea and was honorably discharged he married the love of his life Rebecca Jean Roberts Boshers and they shared 68 years together. When he came home Robert was quite the jack of all trades. He was a tree surgeon and topper for many years, also a fencer, carpenter, and mechanic. He helped build roads in including Golf Course Rd in Mount Pleasant as well as the course itself, he also helped build the Airport. He even for a while worked with Charlie Pride.
