  1. I am in shock. Got word from his Son of his passing. We spoke on a regular basis.
    If anyone told while growing up ‘Around the Field” Bossie will be my mentor in regards to Cisco Networking, I would have doubt them. He was knowledgeable and knew the subject matter. His casual or Caribbean persona was deceiving. He loved teaching and did It with a passion.
