Dan M. Boswell, 89, of Graham, passed away Friday, April 23, 2021 at Alamance Regional Medical Center after years of failing health.
A native of Alamance County, Mr. Boswell was the husband of Penny Robertson Boswell and the son of the late Charlie Lee Boswell and the late Merle Hargrove Boswell.
Dan started carrying papers at 10 years old for the Burlington Times News, and continued to work as a pressman, through his graduation in 1951 and worked there for 18 years until he bought and became co-owner of Mebane Enterprise in Mebane, NC. He later worked for Mr. Harry Puckett, and then went into business with partner Louis Jones to establish Boswell-Jones Printing and Rubber Stamps. He retired in 2002.
Mr. Boswell won several awards from the Burlington Lions Club, including Lion of the Year. Later in life Dan took up golfing and had a Certificate of Appreciation from Senior Men’s Golfing Association. He was most proud of a hole in one!
