November 29, 1941 - May 26, 2022

It is with profound sadness and a lifetime of wonderful memories that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Paul Boyechko.
Paul will be lovingly remembered by the love of his life Florence (married for 57 years); his brother-in-law Vern Tkach (Faye); bother-in-law Peter Tkach (Marilyn); his brother Harry Boyechko (Shirley); along with numerous nephews, nieces and friends.
He is predeceased by his father Todosy; mother Pearl; father and mother-in-law Peter and Elizabeth Tkach; sister and brother-in-law Mary and Harry Tanchak; nephew Trevor Tanchak; and nine of his siblings.
Paul was born on a farm in Weiden, Manitoba and went to school in Rorketon where he could be found playing center field in summer and curling in winter.
In high school he met the love of his life Florence. They started dating with a little persuasion from Florence's sister Mary.
Soon after graduating high school Paul moved to Winnipeg to find employment. His first job was in the mailroom in the Grain Exchange Building. He didn't stay there very long as he started his career at General Distributors (Sony Canada) in June 1962 as the Manager of the import division. Having started his career, he decided to propose to Florence and the two were married September 18, 1965. He went back to school and received his Registered Industrial Accountant diploma in 1977. He then left Sony Canada in 1980 and spent time at a few apparel companies, Saan Stores, Canadian Sportswear and Nygard until he decided to purchase the lotto centre and kiosks in the Garden City Shopping Centre until he retired in 2001.
Paul was very hardworking, extremely generous, and had a great sense of humour. He was very humble, he rarely discussed himself, he always wanted to know about what was going on with others and was excited to learn about others' successes and achievements. He was always kind and quick to give compliments. Paul was impeccably detailed oriented from his flower gardens and lawn to his wardrobe and handwriting.
Paul was a person of faith. He belonged to St. Michaels Ukrainian Catholic Church, acted as a chancellor with The Knights of Columbus and was an active member with the Ukrainian Catholic Brotherhood of Canada K.S.V.
Paul lived his life to the fullest, enjoying many passions. He loved to cook and BBQ. He was an accomplished golfer, winning several golf tournaments including the Sony Company Tourney in 1972 and the Windsor Golf Club Championship in 2005. He loved his cars from the 1964 black and white Crown Victoria, Orange GTO Judge, white Cadillac to his white Lexus (always clean and spotless). He loved to travel, especially to sunny destinations whether it be to Hawaii with nephew Colin and his wife Kinnon, or with friends Gladys and Dwight, Palm Springs with friends Jack and Evelyn, Cuba, Mexico, Dominican Republic and a European river cruise. He loved to gather with friends and family, BBQs at Mary and Harry's, pool parties at Marilyn and Peters', coffee with the guys in the morning, or breakfast, lunch or dinner.
His greatest passion was his best friend and love of his life Florence. They were simply inseparable.
Paul you will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
A Memorial Service will be held at Glen Lawn Funeral Home at 455 Lagimodiere Blvd., on Friday June 10, 2022, at 2:00 p.m.

  • Florence, Peter & Vern: It's with great sadness that we hear of Paul’s passing. He was a farmers mile away neighbour during our childhood years and a true gentleman for whom I always had great admiration. I very vividly re-call school days when we would chat in the school early in the mornings while he waited for the school bus. How can we forget how he cherished that orange "Judge". May our Lord bring you comfort during this time of unimaginable sorrow and may Paul have eternal peace & comfort. - Posted by: Laurence & Suzanne Tkach-Vancouver (Cousins) on: Jun 06, 2022

  • Dear Florence and family, My heart is breaking for you as you bid farewell to dear Paul. I will always remember his beautiful smile and most positive nature as he overcame so much that life dished out to him. His love always shone through especially to you Florence. May all your wonderful memories you shared somehow ease your sorrow at this very difficult time in your lives. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal but Love leaves memories no one can steal. To live in the hearts of those you leave behind is to never die and Paul will live on in all our hearts. He will be missed. - Posted by: Marlyn Harding (Friend) on: Jun 04, 2022
