Theodore (Ted) Alfred Bostwick, 74, of Dillon, Montana, peacefully passed away from cancer on May 24, 2022 at his home.

Ted was born Dec. 21, 1947 in Dillon, Montana. He was the youngest son of the late Gerald H. and Marjorie E. (Carroll) Bostwick.

He attended school in Dillon and later helped his father in the family truck line business. While delivering product to Newbro Drug in Butte, Montana, he met his wife Linda. They soon married in 1970 in Reno, Nevada. A few years later he started his own trucking company, T&L Trucking, where he hauled produce from California to Canada. In 1990, he got out of driving trucks and started Ted’s Repair, a semi truck repair and wrecker company. Trucks in one way or another was apart of his life for over 55 years.

When not working, Ted played hard, too. In his younger years, he enjoyed snow and water skiing. He loved to camp and go on ATV rides with his family. However fishing was his all time favorite past time and the family can recount several “tails”.

Ted leaves behind his wife of over 52 years, Linda Bagley Bostwick. He also leaves behind three daughters: Janice Rule of Dillon, Montana, Michelle (Bill) Kremer of Idaho Falls, Idaho, and Autumn (Dallas) Frey of Helena, Montana; seven grandchildren, Rachel Hankinson, Michael English, Randy English, Dexter Frey, Tess Frey, Cole Frey, and Shelby Kremer. He also leaves behind several great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother Dallas “Shaggy” Bostwick, of Nampa, Idaho; sister Edna Jones of Tampa, Florida; brother Virgil (Harriet) Bostwick of Preston, Idaho; and sisters-in-law Marian Bostwick and Laura Bostwick.

He is preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Myrla; and brothers Maurice and David Bostwick.
