Andrew Kovalchik, age 97, went home to be with the Lord on the evening of Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in Spokane, WA. He was preceded in death by his nine siblings.

My sincerest condolences to you and your family. My father just passed away June 18th, 2020 at the ripe old age of 95...he was also an electrician aboard the Canberra in WW2, so undoubtedly they knew each other. He was onboard from 1943-1946. I can only assume that he was one of those men that my father always talked about, never forgot and was honored to serve beside those many years ago. My dad was EM3c Michael Kobylanski.
My condolences.
