March 16, 2022, 77, Goldsboro –
Joseph Boris Hyczko, 77, passed away on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born in Stara Lubovnia, Czechoslovakia to the late Boris and Katherina Rusnak Hyczko on January 8, 1945. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his infant son, Steven Boris Hyczko; and brother, Mikolaj Hyczko.
Family was the axis upon which Joseph’s world revolved. With a 13 year courtship and a marriage of over 38 years, Monica was not only Joseph’s wife; she was his best friend and companion. Joseph was proud of his children and loved doting on his only granddaughter.
Joseph was also very proud of his Ukraine Heritage and would often tell stories about his childhood. He would always keep abreast of the current events in his home country. Joseph proudly served the United States in the Army during the Vietnam War. Following his service to his country, Joseph worked many positions in information technology and retired from Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
The family will remember Joseph’s life at a later date in a private setting.
Joseph is survived by his wife, Monica Berrios Hyczko; daughter, Natalie Katherina Elizabeth Hyczko and husband, Daniel; son, Andrew Boris Vincent Hyczko; son, Jason Perez; and granddaughter, Evangeline Wren Paashaus. He is also survived by his nephews, Boris “Ray” Hyczko and wife, Ida, Mark Hyczko and wife, Nadine, and Roberto Quinones; and great-nieces, Anna Hyczko and Ariana Hyczko. Joseph is also survived by many nieces and nephews from the Berrios, Cumba, Maury, and Quinones families that he loved very much.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given in Joseph’s memory to an organization that will assist those currently affected by the crisis in the Ukraine.
