Bohdan Nicholas Horeczko Bohdan Nicholas Horeczko It is with great sadness that the family of Bohdan Horeczko announces his passing at his home suddenly on the morning of April 8th, 2014 just days before his 75th birthday celebration. Bohdan (whom many called "Nick" or "Bodyo") was born on April 24th, 1939 in Luts'k to Ol'ha née Nechay, of Rohatyn, Ukraine and Mykola Horeczko of Peremyshl', Ukraine. As the oldest child, he was a great help and comfort to his parents and younger siblings during hard times as refugees during the Second World War. Through the generosity of Catholic Charities they were sponsored to start their lives as Americans, working the cotton fields and factories in rural Bennettsville, South Carolina. Bohdan's father, Mykola, an educated man and Ukrainian Catholic priest, moved the family to California specifically so that his children may benefit from its rich educational opportunities. Bohdan worked throughout his time at St. Agnes High School to help support his family. He graduated from Loyola University with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. While in the Army National Reserves he met the love of his life and the beloved mother of his children, Carolyn (née Dennis). They toiled long and hard together to raise a large, loving, Christian family. Early on, lean times included simultaneous employment as a civil engineer, beginning a new family, and Army Reserve obligations, all during which time he completed an M.S. in Civil Engineering at Long Beach State University. Throughout his life Bohdan lived every hour of every day with the sole purpose to love and serve God and to love, protect, and provide for his family. He loved to spend time with them, poke around the garden, or take as many trips as possible to Wrightwood, California where the family rested and reveled in the mountains, forests, and creeks of the Angeles National Forest. The years blessed him with seven children, seven grandchildren, many friends, and the respect and admiration of his colleagues. He was a devout Catholic, family man, and proud American. Bohdan is preceded in eternal repose by his parents, and his brothers Yarema ("Andrew") and Teodoziy ("Ted"). He will ever be remembered and loved by his wife Carolyn; his daughter Stephanie; his daughter Christina, son-in-law Kurt, and grandchildren Dylan and Catherine Giles; his son Gregory and grandchildren Anna and Nicholas; his son Matthew, daughter-in-law Deborah, and grandchildren Grace, Clara, and Danieljohn; and his sons Timothy, Daniel, and Luke. Sharing in their love and sorrow are his brother Yuriy ("George") and wife Mika and their children and grandchildren; his sister Tamara ("Maka") and her children and grandchildren; his brother Volodymyr ("Walter") and wife Mary, and their children and grandchildren; and many relatives in western Ukraine. A rosary will be prayed for the repose of his soul at McNerney's Mortuary on Sunday, April 13th, 2014 at 7 pm. Mass will be officiated by Fr. Myron Mykyta at Mary Star of the Sea Church on Monday, April 14th at 10:30 am. Interment will follow at Green Hills Memorial Park.
