Bohdan S. Laba

September 5, 1957January 12, 2020

Heaven has gained another angel today. It is a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of our brother, brother-in-law and uncle, Bohdan Laba, lovingly known to family and friends as Bodio or Benny. He died peacefully this morning after a very long illness. Although his life began with many challenges, He overcame them and learned to speak both Ukrainian and English. He went to school and worked both outside of home as well as in his home, helping his mom with household chores. He also belonged to the Holy Innocents Society, where he made many friends and attended workshops and social events. He loved his family and adored his nieces Alexa and Larissa. He was a gentle and kind soul who enjoyed nothing more than having a good cup of coffee with his favorite snack, a slice of bread with butter. We love you Bodio and we will miss you.

Rest well good soul, whenever I went upstairs to give your father the rent you always greeted me with a smile, a handshake and a compliment.
