A FUND-RAISING page set up to help pay for the funeral of a Warwick man who was stabbed has surpassed its target in a matter of days.
Scott Bosley, known as Boz to his friends and the local community, was discovered with stab wounds outside a property on Kettlewell Close, at around 10.20pm on Tuesday. A doctor pronounced him dead at the scene a short time later.
A friend of the 29-year-old launched a fund-raising page to help Scott’s family pay for his funeral.
It aimed to raise £4,000, but in a matter of days has beaten its target by more than £600.
The page reads: “Our whole community was rocked as a friend we all grew up with was stabbed and unfortunately died. We have all agreed that we would like to raise as much money as we can to help pay for a great send off for our friend Scott.
“Every little penny helps and I know everyone within the Woodloes estate and surrounding areas will donate go help Scott’s family give him the send off he deserves. Let’s please show his family our support. Thank you to everyone who helps.”
Scott’s family had previously paid tribute to him.
His long term partner Bethann said: “Boz had so many friends and he always made us laugh and smile. He was the life and soul of every party and was well known within Warwick.
“He was an amazing friend and an even more amazing partner. We were soul mates and made each other’s lives so wonderful. We will all miss him so much. Forever my player 2.”
Scott’s father Clifford Bosley and sister Hayley Bosley also paid tribute.
They said: “Scott was a loving son, brother, uncle and partner to Bethann. Scott was a smart, hardworking, funny, caring person who would do anything for anyone, he meant everything to us.
“This has been a huge shock for our family and left us and his friends devastated.
“We’ll always love you Scott, rest in peace.”
Scott’s mother Kathleen Francis said: “I was very proud of Scott and I will miss him very much.”
