UNITY — The Bosse Family announces with great sadness the sudden passing of Carl "Hank" Bosse.
Born in Mt. Kisco, N.Y., Hank grew up in Stratford, Conn. He enlisted in the U.S. Army serving as a Military Police Dog Handler.
In 1977 he married Susan Tozser and lived in Newtown, Conn., where they had three sons. In 1989 they moved to East Unity. Sadly, Susan passed away in 1997 from a battle with cancer. He remarried his current wife, Carol Martel, in 2013
Throughout his life he worked as a toolmaker and later was self-employed. He participated in the construction of the Hubble Space Telescope. He also designed and produced movie filming equipment. He built his own log cabin home in Botsford, Conn., along with numerous, and sometimes questionable, home and auto repairs. "If we can't fix it, it's broke" was one of his favorite lines.
Hank enjoyed drag racing, his wife and sons, his dog Scarlet, and above all, his lifelong passion of his Harley Davidson and his "biker" family and friends which stretched throughout the US and Canada.
Surviving Hank is his wife Carol, his sons, Lee and wife Jenn, Jesse and wife Melissa, and Mike and wife Shannen. He had two grandsons, Reese and Gavin, and two granddaughters Kaleigh and Emily.
A memorial service will be held at the Newton-Bartlett Funeral Home in Newport from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that do nations be made to the Veterans Administration.
