Nick Boskovich Obituary
Nick "Baka" Boskovich
Nick Boskovich, a long-time resident of San Pedro, died on March 3, 2013 at the age of 88 due to complications from a stroke suffered in 2001. Born in Selca, Brac, Croatia on August 30, 1924 to Juraj and Mare Boskovic, Nick immigrated to the United States in 1939 to live with his paternal grandparents in Eatonville, Washington. Nick began working as a commercial fisherman as a teenager in Washington, a career that spanned more than 40 years on the seas, having never had a "shore job". Nick enjoyed family gatherings, listening to Croatian folk songs and mariachi music, and especially enjoyed hosting great steak bbq's, drinking red wine and having a good cigar. Nick had a keen wit, great sense of humor, and was an adept storyteller. In 1951 Nick met and married his wife of 61 years, Sepreana "Katie" Dragich, and they had three children, Violet Boskovich, Marlene (Dan) Lindley, and Nick (Diane) Boskovich. Nick is survived by his devoted wife who unselfishly cared for her husband for many years following his stroke. Nick is also survived by his three loving children, and six adored grandchildren, Brett (Natalie) Lindley, Ryan Lindley, Nicholas Boskovich, Kristen Boskovich, Alex Boskovich and Matthew Boskovich. Nick is preceded in death by his sisters Darinka Papo and Rita Nizetic, and survived by one sister, Marija Saric. Nick will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him. A Memorial Service will be held on March 15, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at the Green Hills Memorial Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes with interment to follow.
