Boris Lonkewycz

Boris Lonkewycz, age 65, passed away Tuesday, October 23, 2018, at Albany Medical Center, surrounded by his family. Born January 21, 1953 in Bronx, NY, he was the only child of Paul and Kornelia Lonkewycz. 

 

Boris was raised in the Bronx, where he grew up with a large extended family that include his cousins Alexandra, Dana, and Shanya, whom he referred to later in life as his sisters.

After his retirement, Boris enjoyed travelling with his wife Christina, and especially looked forward to the time they spent together in Cape Cod every summer. He was truly dedicated to his family and found his greatest joy in his role as “Papa” to his grandchildren. 

 

Besides his loving wife of 42 years, Christina, Boris is survived by his mother Kornelia, his children Arianna (Damian) Masterson and Nicholas (Zorielle) Lonkewycz, and his three grandchildren, Mateo, Finnegan and Penelope.  His cousins; Alexandra Dutka, Dana Lenec, Natalka Sawchuk (Chris Blay), and Roxalana Sawchuk (Driss Zoukhri).

Boris you were the best boss, coworker, friend anyone could have. You always supported your team wether they were right or wrong, you backed them up. It tears me up that the angels came calling. It was not your time! We had a great working /friendship relationship. We fought/joked so much we were like family, that they said we were like a married couple in the office. I will never forget watching your children grow through pictures and bringing your kids to work days. You are a true example of a great dad. It is my pleasure of all the great memories we had. Christina God bless to you and your family in this time of sorrow... I am truly sorry..
