Bohdan (Bo or Don) was gentle and patient man. He was a wonderful person with a kind heart, incredibly smart, and funny (he loved those dad jokes). He had a deep pride in his Ukrainian heritage, computers, cars, reading, music (he played the bandura and sang in a choir in his younger days), pottery and most recently crocheting.

Bohdan was the kindest person with a big heart and a quiet sense of humour - and deep pride in his Ukrainian culture. He will be deeply missed. Bo was one of my best buddies in junior high. It was Bo, Eugene Joukowski, Gabi Siriani, Hanif Rahemtula, and me. We spent every lunch hour together and played handball. It was a fun time! In the summer, we’d play tennis in the courts behind the big white funny-shaped apartments on Exbury, which is the street he lived on. Bo played his bandura at the spring concert in Grade 9, and we sometimes went to his house after school - we even tried the aloe vera hooch his dad made. 😂 And met the big white samoyed, of course. He was a lovely man all his life. I’ll be thinking of him in the coming days
