Neil P. Boser was born July 5, 1972 in Brainerd, MN to Earl and Karen (Kruschek) Boser. He grew up in the Hillman area, attended school in Onamia and graduated from Onamia High School. Neil worked for Michels Corporation based out of Lumira, WI. He was recently recruited to start up their marine division with his expertise in dive work and under water concrete repair. He was very pristine with his safety-first mentality on the job site! He enjoyed NASCAR, listening to music, golf, singing, drinking beer, cooking anything in the smoker, hanging out in his man cave, and being with people he loved, especially friends and family.
He always enjoyed deer camp and everything that went with it. Neil loved family gatherings including chili cook-offs, and Christmas was his favorite holiday. Neil treasured trips four wheeling at Rusty's cabin, Father's Day camping trips on Big Sandy and traveling to Moon Palace Resorts in Mexico and Jamaica, There was something special about the heated pool and the swim up bar that Neil really enjoyed!
He had a special talent of drumming on the dashboard when a catchy tune would come on the radio, pulling his own name out of the hat at a local gun raffle, and knowing the words to every song, including the artist that sang it!
Neil was a member of the Ten Mile Gun Club, St. Rita's Catholic Church, the Hillman Area Wildlife Management Association, Local Laborers Union 563, and the Chicago Pile Drivers Union.
