    What a loss of a great man. I have so many memories of this man from my Junior high thru Senior high school years. Too many to list here but he truly was a very caring and helpful person. I’ll always remember that smile of his. Rest in peace Marine!

    I often tell my children (and now my grandchildren) about Mr. Bossert’s influence on my life. I had more than my share of detention runs with Mr. Bossert up Fairview Road after school. While tough, we all knew Mr. Bossert cared and wanted us to succeed. Mr. Bossert had a greater impact on thousands of young people than he ever realized. I wish you God’s peace as you grieve your loss.

    Mr. Bossert was a one-of-a-kind educator and person. I will never forget the kindness and compassion he showed me when I moved into Loyalsock Twp HS in mid-Sept.1982 as a Junior. He was non-judgmental, understanding, and had a no-nonsense, common sense approach. Above all else, he treated everyone with respect and actually listened to your side of the situation. I’ve never forgotten him or his approach to education in the almost 37 years since I graduated from high school. Thanks for sharing him with us, and I thank him for making my unpleasant high school years so much more bearable! May he rest in peace, with your mom, under that apple tree at Big Foot! My parents and I send his family healing thoughts, peace, and blessings as you all mourn his passing.

    My sincerest condolences to the family of George Bossert. In 1962 he was my Sunday School teacher at the Church of Christ in Williamsport PA. When I turned 17 he recommended to my father that I sign up in the Marine Corps Reserve in Williamsport, where he was the Commanding Officer. I did so and went to Parris Island on August 8th 1963. I was in the 78th Rifle Company until it disbanded. I finished out my enlistment with a month of active duty each year thereafter being discharged as a Lance Corporal on 10 June 1970. I am forever grateful to George as I would have been drafted after High School. He’ll be guarding the streets of Heaven now and Heaven is in good hands. Semper Fidelis, Sir.
