It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Bohdan (Bo) Iwachiw on July 27, 2020 at the age of 66 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Beloved husband of Lesia. Cherished father of Alexa and Christine. Loving son of Stefania and the late Bohdan. Dear brother-in-law of Irene and Art Ross, loved uncle of Chelsea, Connor and Jacob.

Dear Lesia and family...please accept our heartfelt sympathies on the loss of Bo. Many fond memories when we were younger and we all enjoyed the activities of the youth club formed under Holy Spirit Church where Bo always helped and supported. As we got older Bo continued to support all Ukrainian events and it was always nice to see him and catch up on life events. He will be missed. Vechnya Pomiat

Lesia and family. Our condolences. Bo was a dear friend to the family and will be sorely missed. Bo was very passionate about his family, friends and heritage. Our fondest memories of Bo always involved an antidote of Ukraine's history, stories of his life and family, and his love for his family. We are deeply sorry for your loss. May he be at peace and may you remember all the good he brought to this world enriching the lives of everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
