1949 - 2021

On March 2, 2021, beloved son of the late Nicholas Hretzay and Lena Hretzay (Romanuik), and brother to E.N. Hretzay and Andrew A. Hretzay.
Our brother was truly a kind soul and during his entire life he helped our mother and during her later life as caregiver, my mother's sisters, and those close family members in distress.
As a brother, he was always willing to stand and support with you.
Elmer's body will be blessed at a private viewing and cremation will follow. His ashes will be interred at our parent's gravesite in Holy Family Cemetery this June.
On March 12, at 10:00 a.m., at Holy Eucharist Ukrainian Catholic Church, with the Rev. Dr. Michael Kwiatkowski officiating, a memorial mass will be said and all are welcome to attend.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • So sorry to hear about Elmer. We didn't get to see him often but he always treated us like so kindly. When I think of Elmer I think of his smile and his caring soul. My fondest memory is his regular deliveries of Mad River juice to our home. Rest in Peace. Dan & Matthew Turner - Posted by: Dan Turner (2nd Cousin) on: Mar 24, 2021
