Andy was predeceased by his mother Verna Bodnar in July, 1998, his father Matt Bodnar in May, 2004, and his wife Shelly in January, 2015.

Andy was born on January 23, 1967 in Yorkton; the youngest and last child of Matt and Verna. His first 9 years were spent growing up on the family farm in the Sheho district. In 1976 the family sold all of the cattle and purchased a home in Yorkton while continuing to crop the land on the farm. Andy attended St. Alphonsus Elementary School, St. Joseph’s Junior High School, and finally Sacred Heart High School. He excelled in basketball in high school and also loved to play football. After his graduation he continued his love of sports with curling and slow pitch ball. He enjoyed these extra curricular sports and especially loved the friends and camaraderie that came with them.

Andy’s first job after high school was in the maintenance department at the Yorkton Regional Hospital. After that he took a full-time position at Kents Flour Mill in Yorkton. He used this job as a stepping stone to support his farming habit. He also worked at the Esso bulk dealer in Yorkton delivering fuel and anhydrous ammonia. His next endeavour was with Case Power and Equipment in the parts department. During this time Andy continued to help operate the family farm, ultimately purchasing his own land which he farmed concurrently.
Andy met the love of his life, Shelly Kohuch in 1994. They married in 1997 and shared their passion of fishing and spending time at the farm. Staying at the farm was like camping, no running water, outhouse, and a sky full of stars. These were memorable times for them! Andy and Shelly resided in Yorkton until their untimely passing.

Andy’s last five years were spent at Royal Ford in parts where he met many new friends!! He will be dearly missed.

Andy is survived by sisters Brenda Clark, Adeline Jeffries (Jim), Angeline Paul (Bernie); also his sister Darlene Dubas (Peter) and brother Mervin Boychuk (Lauren). He will also be missed by his many nieces and nephews.

Memorials in Andy's memory may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association, Saskatchewan Division, 2702 12th Ave. Regina, SK S4T 1J2

Please accept my condolences on Andy's passing, I was shocked when I heard. We went to high school together and were friends throughout working on our old cars and enjoyed a two-week road trip to California. I had not talked to Andy for a number of years, time goes by each of us busy in our own lives. Sorry to hear, Andy will be greatly missed

We so enjoyed having Andy as a member of our staff at the Esso Agency. He was very conscientious and our customers enjoyed having him do the deliveries. Our staff parties never had a dull moment between him and a couple other staff. We so hoped he would come to a reunion we had last November. Our sincere condolences to all. He is now with the love of his life.

I worked with Andy for approximately 20 years in the Case IH parts department. Never seemed to be a dull moment with the teasing, irritation and the laughter afterwards. Lots of great memories from staff parties, summer bbqs, fishing trips, etc. Condolences to the family for Andy will be sadly missed. Gene Wonchulanko
