Andrew V. “Bud” Greskovich, 82, of Bristolville, entered peacefully into eternal rest Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 6:55 p.m. surrounded by his loving family at University Hospitals of Cleveland.
Andy was born October 28, 1935 in Warren, the son of the late Andrew P. and Susan Patrnchak Greskovich and was a lifelong area resident graduating from Warren G. Harding High School in 1953.
A Veteran of the United States Army, Andy was a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division in Rakkasan from 1957 until being honorably discharged in 1960. Andy was a General Motors retiree.
He had a generous heart and lived life to the fullest. Andy was an avid outdoorsman; enjoying hunting and fishing. He loved to watch sports, especially the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football games. Andy was always compassionate and kind to all creatures, and was diligent about taking care of his bluebirds. Watching his grandchildren grow throughout their lives gave him great joy. It always brought happiness having “Papa” attend an event as their greatest fan. Papa always had a good story to make you laugh, and to share his lifetime experiences with his family.
Andy was of the Byzantine Catholic faith and was a longtime parishioner of SS. Peter & Paul Byzantine Catholic Church in Warren.
Andy married the former Loretta Rose on April 25, 1959, and was blessed with 58 wonderful years of marriage.
He will be forever missed by his wife, Loretta; his four children, Andrew V. (Mary Kay) Greskovich, Jr. of Niles, Sandy (Mark) Frantz of Champion, Judy (Bill) Dinko of Niles and Robert Greskovich of Howland; and his seven grandchildren Andrew Greskovich, Alex (Naomi) Greskovich, Jessica Frantz, Megan Frantz, Robert Greskovich, Katherine Greskovich and Jennifer Greskovich. Andy is also survived by his sister Bernice “Tootie” Martin of Warren and brothers Bill (Joann) Greskovich of The Villages, Florida and John P. Greskovich of Lordstown.
