A wake will be held on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 from 2-4 & 7-9pm. Prayer service to take place at 8pm.

Walter C. “Wally” Bozenko, 65, of Albertson, NY, passed away on June 11, 2018. Reunited in heaven with his beloved Mother Maria, Father Walter J., and Sister Francis. Wally, and his wife Ro met at age 17, were inseparable for 45+ years, and married for 40 years. He grew up in Hollis, Queens. His loves included spending time with friends and family, travelling with his wife, drinking his 7&7’s, eating all types of foods, and most importantly enjoying the past 5 years of retirement to the fullest. He loved spending countless hours playing cards with his dearest friends. Enjoyed model trains, bingo, breakfast with the boys from work, Hollis reunions and most of all loving his family in his own way (loud and crazy). Wally worked for the MTA for 30+ years where he made many many friends. There wasn’t anyone he came across who he did not impact. He had a one of a kind sense of humor, jolly nature, gift of gab and most of all generous heart.

Above all else Wally was a devoted and loving husband to Rosanne and father to his three children, Nicholas, Danielle (Mark), and Matthew.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Remember when you took me shooting and I almost shot my foot off. Then I held the riffle up to my shoulder, not knowing it had a good kick. It almost knocked me to the ground.
You never let me forget that day.

Don’t remember what family event this was but it’s classic Wally. The favorite cousin, the life of the family. We will miss him terribly. We love him always.

I don’t remember not knowing you. Always laughed and loved life. I’d ask for 1/2 lb of salami and went home with a pound.
Rest In Peace dear friend. You will be forever missed. 💔

Dear Friends,
Just here to share a favorite memory that I have. Growing up he always no matter what when he saw me said " Hey look Christina Beaner is here" 😂😂😂
Even tho I have not seen you guys in a long time I can still hear him saying that. I always remember him laughing a lot.
You will be missed.
My sincerest condolences to my God Mother , Nick, Dani & Matt ❤❤

Wally, I feel like I don't remember not knowing you. But I guess we first met when I moved to 199th St. That would be 7th grade. So yes, I basically have known you most of my life. So many great times and many laughs. Best times of course were when you would come with me on Friday afternoons to TSS and we would stock up on oil for my leaky Chevy Nova. Nights hanging out on the corner of 201st St and Cunningham Park were the best of times. We always think we will all be around forever. I am sorry this was your time to leave us. You have left your mark and we will never forget you. RIP Big Guy. xo
