COHOES Bohdan Peter Chorny, 88, passed away peacefully Saturday, Mar. 14, 2020 at the Eddy Village Green surrounded by his loving family.

Bohdan was born in Poland to Serhyj and Katarzyna Shulkowski Chorny. He was educated in Poland, Ukraine and Germany and moved to the US when he was 18. Attending a Ukrainian church picnic in Cohoes he met the love of his life, Irene Fedusiw Chorny and they were married on Sept. 2, 1956. Together they shared 62 wonderful years.

Bohdan started as a laborer at Consolidated Gas & Elec. and then at Cardish Machine Works in Watervliet. He went on to work for many years at the Watervliet Arsenal as a machinist until his retirement in 1988. He was known for his ability as a craftsman who could either build or fix anything. With his talents, he loved to create things for his grandchildren. He was an avid NY Mets and NY Giants fan. He enjoyed bowling, playing cards and vacationing in Aruba.

In addition to his wife Irene, Bohdan is survived by his children, Kristyna Moroukian (Herb) of Wynantskill, Michael Chorny (Terri) of Las Vegas, NV, Andre Chorny (late Kim “Liz”) of Clifton Park and Larissa Fiacco (Anthony) of Mechanicville. He was “Popi” to Jeffrey, Danielle, Camryn, Dylan, Jenna and Anthony Chet. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister, Chrystyna Szandyba.

Funeral services will be Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at the Fitzgerald Funeral Home, 105 Vliet Blvd., Cohoes and at 10 a.m. at St. Peter & St. Paul’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, Cohoes. Interment will follow in St. Peter & St. Paul’s Ukrainian Catholic Cemetery, Waterford.
