Obituary for Borislav "Bob" Bosika

Borislav "Bob"  Bosika
Bosika, Bora "Bob"
Passed away peacefully at home on May 14, 2020. He is survived by his wife Ingeborg of 34 years, daughter Gloria (Mike) Cowan, nieces and nephews. Bora was predeceased by his parents, Ziva and Saveta, brother Dusko and sister Dana. Bora Bosika was a faithful member of the Apostolic Christian Church (Nazarene).

Bora was born on February 18, 1929 in Baranda, Serbia (formerly Yugoslavia). From early youth, he was a faithful attendee of the Apostolic Christian Church (Nazarene). As a conscientious objector, he spent seven and a half years in prison. Upon his release, he saved enough money to escape to freedom. He journeyed for three days with his cousin to Italy and was reunited with believers. In 1962, Bora finally arrived in Canada and settled in Kitchener, Ontario. A hard worker, he saved enough money to bring his mother and daughter to Canada and developed a successful carpentry business. On April 5th, 1986, he married Ingeborg Mueller from Cleveland, Ohio. He was known as a generous and hospitable brother, who would host many barbecues and was always ready to help anyone in need.

In his later years, he suffered a stroke and his health began to decline after a diagnosis of dementia. The caregivers and nurses had great respect and affection for him, because he was always cheerful and thankful. In his final hour, he was surrounded by loved ones singing his favourite hymns. After a prayer, he squeezed everyone’s hands and said, “Thank you.” Those were his final words before he left his earthly home. The family would like to thank the personal support workers, the nurses and the medical team who cared for Bora for their kindness and excellent support.
