   Richard John Bos was born March 10, 1944 in Canton, SD.  He was the son of Lawrence and Gertrude (Bobeldyk) Bos. He graduated from West Lyon school in Inwood, IA. Richard was united in marriage to Devonne (Vander Sanden) on October 27, 1967. During this time, Richard served in the Army National Guard in Sioux Falls, SD. Together, they made their home and farmed east of Inwood their entire career. 

 

   Richard was a cherished member of the Inwood community. In his early years, he enjoyed fishing with his best friends, bowling downtown Inwood, slow-pitch softball, tractor pulls, and of course making sure everyone in town had sweet corn from the “Bos patch.” He worked for the Inwood Hatchery making and delivering feed for local farmers as well.  

 

   Richard loved to farm! He delighted in helping his neighbors making sure their operations were successful. His fulfillment was simply helping those with an interest in agriculture. He enjoyed having coffee with his farming friends where every morning they tried to figure out “who planted corn the straightest!”   

 

   Most of all, Richard loved the Lord and was a lifelong member of First Reformed Church in Inwood. He served in the consistory as both deacon and elder. He took great pride in church activities knowing it was for God’s glory. He was a mentor among the congregation and strived to be the best Husband, Dad, and Grandpa by being a devoted Christian.   

 

   Richard passed away with his family near his side at Crown Pointe care center in Sioux Center, IA. He is survived by his wife, Devonne; daughter, Karla (Brad) Jorgenson of Brandon, SD; daughter, Londa (Brad) Jennings of Sioux Falls, SD; son, Ryan (Krista) Bos of Edgerton, MN; granddaughter, Ryleigh Jorgenson of Sioux Falls, SD; granddaughter, Reagan Jorgenson of Brandon, SD; grandson, Kylen Bos of Edgerton, MN; and brother, Ron (Donna) Bos of Inwood, IA.
