I am saddened to have learned of the passing of Mr. Kachur just today. Steve (and his wife Mary) were 2 of my clients for about a year while I worked as a home support worker about 10 years ago. I went to the Kachur's apartment (oakland gardens) once a week for laundry, Steve was such a sweet old man, he was SO independant, he ALWAYS insisted in helping me take the laundry down, (as often as I would say "no, no it's okay!!" he would always help anyway) as well as fold it after it was done. I remember him always being so neat which I thought was pretty cool! He would always help me hang his collared button-up shirts on hangers! He was such an angel to Mary! I remember how much I could tell he loved her. He would always cover her up with a blanket, and put on/take off her socks for her when she was on the recliner! He was always telling her to keep her feet/legs up (elevated) on the leg rest thing!! Steve was such a nice client to work for! always willing to help and always friendly!! I Always liked his accent (or the way he talked). RIP Steve, you were a wonderful person. - Posted by: Amber (Former home support worker (laundry) ) on: Dec 14, 2018
I'm so sorry - we lost one great man. He will be missed by all. I hear him still sing 'hunny in morning hunny in evening'.. I looked always to see them both when aunty and uncle came for visiting. I got tons of great memories. Love you uncle, rest with all others and know you will be missed daily. From me and my kids and all your other Prokop family, we will miss you. - Posted by: Tracy prokop (Niece) on: Nov 24, 2018
