Beloved father, brother, uncle, and friend, Thomas W. Bostic, age 89, peacefully passed away on November 9, 2019, after a
long, valiant battle with leukemia, cardiac disease and Alzheimer’s. The family would like to acknowledge and thank Landmark Rehab and Nursing Facility of Elkhorn City for their kind and loving care over these many months.

Tom had a long career with the C & O Railroad beginning as a young man in WV. For a short time, he was called away to
military service for his country during the Korean War. Upon discharge, he returned as a machinist with the Railroad and
was later transferred to the Shelbiana, KY facility, where he was Foreman of the Yard for the repair and maintenance of the locomotives until he retired in 1987. Throughout his life, Tom had a passion for tinkering around the house, woodworking
and metalwork.

Thomas was born in Talcott, WV as the youngest son of the late Pauline Saunders Bostic & William Otho Bostic. As a child
in growing up, he was never without a playmate, having six brothers and three sisters.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 52 years, Nova Tackett Bostic, by his brothers and two sisters: Ralph (Mary) of Hinton, WV; Howard (Edie) of Montgomery, WV; Jack (Sally) of Boomer, WV; Richard/Dick (Betty) of Ballenge, WV; James/Jim (Jean) of Montgomery, WV; Bernard (Nancy) of Talcott, WV; Ruby Ballengee (Jack) of Newcastle, PA; and Florence Mann (Everett) of Talcott, WV.

Tom is survived by his daughter, Brenda Johnson (Newton) of Tucson, AZ; son David W. Bostic; and his youngest sister, Mary Carol Ward (Hershel) of Talcott, WV; numerous nieces and nephews; and longtime neighbors and wonderful friends, Norman and Phyllis Clevinger.

Funeral service will be Thursday, November 14, at Thacker Memorial Funeral Home in Pikeville, KY. Visitation at 1:00 pm,
with Services at 2:00 p.m. with the Reverend Robby Worrix officiating. Entombment will follow at the Annie E. Young Cemetery in the J.U. Thacker Mausoleum.
