Thomas James “TJ” Bostic

Thomas James “TJ” Bostic of Chestertown, MD passed away on Tuesday, May 11, 2021. He was 66.

Born on March 30, 1955 in Chestertown, MD, he was the son of the late George and Betty Lowman Bostic.

TJ grew up in Church Hill, MD and attended Queen Anne’s Co. High School. He worked for KRM as a machine operator and moved to Louisiana in the early 80s where he worked as a tow truck driver for many years before moving back to Maryland. After returning to Maryland, he worked as a painter with his lifelong friend, Mike Morris.

TJ enjoyed collecting baseball cards and looking for fishing holes in the woods with his brother when they were children. He loved riding motorcycles, bowling, playing pool, fishing and taking his grandchildren to Ethel’s Sub Shop when they were young. TJ was a diehard Saints fan – whenever you saw him, he was wearing Saints attire and drinking a Diet Dr. Pepper.

He is survived by his daughter, Liz Meekins of Chestertown; a brother, Dudley “Wayne” Bostic and wife Terri of Chestertown; a grandson, Tyler Meekins and his wife Shelbi of Galena; a granddaughter, Morgan Meekins and Tyler Clagett of Stevensville; and a niece Erin Bostic of Baltimore, as well as many cousins, friends and extended family. He was predeceased by his sister, Dale Lynn Bostic in 1963 and his son-in-law, Steve Meekins in 2019.
