Biography

Edward Bostwick

Edward C. Bostwick, 59, of Waverly went to be with the Lord on Friday, December 4, 2020 from complications of COVID-19 after beating Leukemia over a year ago at Roswell Park in Buffalo, New York.

He was predeceased by his parents, Edward and Winifred Staples Bostwick; and his father-in-law, Edward Vogle.

Ed is survived by his soulmate and love of his life, Corky Bostwick of Waverly; his “boys” Diesel and Lou; his siblings, Maria (Fred) Shrimp of Rome, PA, Gary (Donna) Bostwick of Sayre, Virginia Temple of Waverly, Michael (Shawn) Bostwick of Nichols, Leslie (Yvonne) Bostwick of Waverly, Richard (Marsha) Bostwick of Apalachin, Donald (Roberta) Bostwick of Smithboro, Kevin Bostwick of Endicott, Patrick (Laurie) Bostwick of Candor and James Bostwick of Waverly; sisters-in-law, Kim (Kerry) Root of Smithboro, Margo (Dan) Ayres of Tioga Center, Kelly (Mike) Kelley of Rome, PA; mother-in-law, Marietta Miller of Smithboro; special nieces & nephews, Brittine Owen, Kyle Bostwick, John Harding, Gabriella Ayres, Caleb Nichols, Martina Ayres and Matthew Nichols; along with numerous other nieces, nephews and cousins.

Ed was born in Waverly at the Tioga General Hospital on January 26, 1961.  Ed met Corky at Southern Tier Auctions on Shepard Road in 1976 and were married on June 16, 1984.  Ed began his towing career after the blizzard of 1993.  Ed and Corky purchased Huckles Towing in Waverly on January 1, 2000 and went on to build the business to what it is today.  He was and always will be the Tow master.  Ed loved the challenge of the towing industry and enjoyed collecting antique signs, having poker parties, all the family gatherings, riding 4 wheelers and traveling with his friends.  Ed had a “humble heart,” and was always giving to the community and his friends and family.  Ed always considered his past and present employees to be like family.  When we think of Ed, he was strong, committed, hardworking and kind.

The family would like to send a special “Thank You” to Dr. McCarthy, nurses Laura and Alexis, his Physician’s Assistant, Molly and the Class of 2017 BMT at Roswell Park in Buffalo. Also, a special “Thank You” to our operations manager, Michael Nichols, for being there when we needed him most.

Corky, so sorry for your loss....Not sure you remember me but I was married to Jimmy John Blair.  I remember Ed coming to my aid when I locked my keys in my car, and when he realized I was Jimmy John’s wife..he would not let me pay him for rescuing me.
