Walter Michael Boraczek, Jr. (78) passed away on Thursday, April 23, 2020, from complications of the Covid-19 virus, leaving behind his beloved wife of 52 years, Utillia (Judy) DeRusso Boraczek, and his two loving children, Francyne Boraczek Arendas, and Walt Boraczek III.

Thanks to the mercy of God, his passing was peaceful and without distress or pain.
