I just found out about Dr Boluch's passing. I haven't seen him in years but worked with him several years back in the 80s. What an awesome man to work for. He reminded me weekly that I was wishing my life away as we would sit there working and planning for the weekend coming up. You know something? He was indeed right. I share that story with others all the time. He was an amazing Dr. and an awesome man to work with. He will be missed by so many but he sure did teach me a lot about life!
Your life was wonderful and those that truely knew you and Charlie would agree. Many many wonderful memories!!
We had the privilege of working with Dr. Boluch at Arlington Community Health Clinic (while he was teaching in the Family Practice Residency Program for the TCHD.) Everyone liked Dr. Boluch; including the nurses, staff, residents, medical students, and most of all, the patients. The thing that I remember most is Dr. Boluch standing at the Nurses' Station telling jokes every morning. He always had a smile for everyone. The family is in our thoughts and prayers.
To the family of Dr. John Boluch I'm so sorry for your loss; it hurt my heart when I heard about his passing. Dr. Boluch was much more than a physician of medicine he was one of a kind, a loving, caring person that became a friend. He was our physician for many years. He was my parent's physician way before I came into this world. In fact he was the Doctor that delivered my brother and me along with my husband and his siblings.
Childhood memories of going to his office on Pipeline Rd. loving the aquarium in the middle of the waiting room, this seemed to make me feel better watching the fish. We always knew when it was our turn waiting in the room because you would hear him sing “Everybody loves somebody sometime.” He had a soothing voice that would calm your nerves. There were many times he would come to our house with his little black bag to doctor us kids when we were so sick.
Our family mourns with you over the loss of such a wonderful man.
God Bless your family,
Darla Keele Wallace

John Boluch was fine
John Boluch was indeed a great individual. We were very close friends at A&M along with our time in the Air Force. I lived in Louisiana but we visited each other whenever we had an opportunity. No doubt, we were very close. My deepest sympathy to the family. Lester jay
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Rosanne, Maryjane and JB I'm sorry for the loss of your father. Doc was one of the good people in this world and we are all diminished by his passing, but we take comfort in the knowledge that he helped many more good people come into and live well in this world.
This family is in our thoughts and prayers during the loss of this loved one.
We are praying for this family during their time of loss.
He was my first doctor as I was growing up. Fond memories of getting an arm in a cast and sling.
A very special man, Dr. John was a very giving, loving and caring neighbor and friend. He was always there with a kind word and a story to brighten our world. He will be missed greatly.
Dr. Boluch was a true family friend and family doctor. He cared for my grandparents in their later years, as well as both of my parents, our children and grandchildren. We were devastated when he left his practice in Hurst and we had to find a new doctor. He was a very good friend to my husband, C. A. and visited him in the hospital often. You may not remember us, but my family and I remember you as you were growing up, and mourn with you over the loss of such a good man.
I have truly lost a great friend. Even tho my time with John was short, I was able to see what a kind, gentle man he was. I will truly miss him.
Poppie always told me stories about working in the hospital and going to school. But the one thing I will never forget is every time I would visit I asked him to show me the art. We would walk his house for hours just looking at and him talking and telling me stories I've already heard before. But, he became a hero. Someone I knew had done everything he had wanted. On Easter weekend he still didn't fail to tell m another story about his time in the war or in school. He recited both the air force and the Aggie's chants without a pause. That, is a hero and a true Aggie!
To The Boluch Family,
Dr. Boluch will be truly missed.
He delivered me in 1956,my nephew in 1961,and took care of my family.I work for Dr. Paul Kim and have enjoyed visiting with Dr.Boluch and listening to his great stories over the last few years.
Thoughts and Prayers to you all.
Roseanne, MaryJane, John - I'm certain you will get many notes like mine, from people you will never know, but who remember your dad with great respect. Your dad was an amazing Family Doctor...he delivered my youngest brother, who is now 50! My parents, Pat and Thelma Gaither, thought the world of him, and trusted him with their four children's health when they were young parents, back when Hurst was a small town.
All best to your families, during this time of sadness.
May the memories made in this life comfort you until you see each other again !
