FAREWELL HARRY BOSWELL

I never met Harry Boswell or his wife Stephanie. We only corresponded via the Internet, but I couldn’t help admiring him. The Boswells were from England originally and back a decade ago now, they packed up and moved to Malaysia, bringing along not only a few possessions, but more importantly, a passion for ‘green living’ in both senses. Harry was the first person in Malaysia, to his knowledge, to own a Prius. You couldn’t buy one there at the time, so he bought it in England and had it shipped to Malaysia, meaning this brand new car traveled some 14,000 sea miles from Japan to England and back to Malaysia before ever seeing a mile on the road. The Boswells then built the first ‘green’ home in Malaysia, one engineered to work with the country’s tropical climate. Several times a year Harry would send out a letter and photos by email updating his friends and relations about his and Stephanie’s activities and adventures, including meeting the Prime Minister, if I recall correctly. Often those letters described the wildlife that surrounded their tropical home: noisy monkeys, giant insects, colorful birds, and very large snakes. He was Malaysia’s best expatriate promoter, always encouraging us to follow in his footsteps.

Sadly, Stephanie wrote to inform me that Harry passed away two weeks ago after fighting prostate cancer for years. I didn’t know. I’ll miss those letters and photos!
