Wasyl will always be remembered and live in the hearts and memory of all who knew him. I met Wasyl back in 1966/67 through Ray and Gene. He also became my neighbor when he bought a house across the street from me in Southie. He was fun to hang around with and a good friend not just to me but to everyone in our circle of friends!

I met Wasyl when he was 12 years old, he always had a smile on his face or a laugh to give. I thought of him as a brother who use to tease me all the time as a teenager. Peace to his family. Prayers and love is being sent your way. Rest peaceful my friend.

My beloved cousin and friend, Wasyl. You were more like a brother to me, always looking out for me. I will always have fond memories of our times not only as children but also as adults. I will miss you, but I know that I will see you in the resurrection that Jesus promised us. Until then sleep well my friend and in peace. I send not only you but also your whole family my Prayers and my Love.

Always Luba

I am so sad to lose such a legend. You were a real OG of your time. I loved listening to your stories of past and present ventures. Yesterday I wore the earrings you gave me (and my nana and mum) when you and Carmela visited my nana in the hospital. I always loved wearing them but now they mean so much more. I'm going to miss you so much but I know you are free of pain.
