CDR Bosquet N. Wev, Jr., USN (Ret.), passed away on Friday, January 19, 2024 in Fredericksburg, VA. He was 94 years old.

Born in Baltimore, MD, “Biscuit” was the son of RADM and Mrs. B. N. Wev (‘27). He entered the Academy via a Presidential Appointment after prepping at Severn School. While at Annapolis, he was a crew team coxswain during plebe year, a dinghy sailor as a Youngster, and managed the dinghy team the last two years. Biscuit also served as company representative for The Log.

Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a Navy ensign and married his Academy OAO, Anne “Petey” Campbell Armistead. Biscuit excelled as a Submarine Officer. Over his 20-year career in the Silent Service, he served in submarines including USS MANTA, USS CLAMAGORE, USS SEA CAT and USS SEA LEOPARD as executive officer. Shore assignments included teaching Sonar systems to U.S. and international students in Key West, FL and a support assignment in Millington, TN. In 1962, he joined USS JAMES MONROE (SSBN 622) under construction in Newport News. Biscuit served as the Blue Crew Navigator on his first nuclear powered submarine, enjoying deployments to Rota, Spain and Holy Loch, Scotland. His final assignments were spent serving on the staff of Submarine Forces, Atlantic Fleet in Norfolk, VA and the Pentagon, retiring in 1972.

His civilian years were spent as a contractor in the Washington, D.C. area. Petey and Biscuit enjoyed 20 years in Arlington, VA, being very active at Grace Episcopal Church in Alexandria. As a USNA Alumni Association member and ‘52 Class President, he was an enthusiastic supporter at home football games. He shared his love of the Naval Academy and the Redskins with everyone he met, and was known for his extensive Blue & Gold and Burgundy & Gold wardrobe. In 1984, Petey and Biscuit moved to Annapolis and enjoyed many years of boating on the Chesapeake Bay and entertaining family and friends. Sailing aboard Holland America lines with the Jazz Cruise kept them busy for many years. They were very active at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church where Biscuit served as Junior Warden for many years.

Bosquet was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Anne; as well as an infant son, “Little Bis.” 

He is survived by his four children, Anne (Jim), Elizabeth (Pat), Diane (Dave), and Alex (Chellie); eight grandchildren, who knew him as “Gramps” and “Wix”; seven great-grandchildren; and sister, Connie Algermissen.
