Family Loses Father

Vitaliy Shevchenko was born on September 17th 1967 in Kiev, a city of Ukraine.
In 1995 Vitaliy and his wife Svetlana immigrated to United States and had three children by the names of Ivanka, Yana, and Bogdan.
Vitaliy was a simple, kind hearted man. Those that knew him knew him as a very giving person, he would give his last if you were in need.
I see how a lot of people go through life, all having a baggage they carry...Vitaliy also had a baggage of his own.
One thing I've observed and noticed about him was that he never judged another person, that was very noble of him.
Unfortunately, Vitaliy passed away on the morning of October the 11th 2017 due to a severe infection that couldn't be reversed.
He now resides with our Heavenly Father Yahweh whom he loved so much, never allowing his problems to distant him from Lord our God.
The family wouldn't want to be a burden onto anyone..if you do find it in your heart to support them in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.
All funds will go towards funeral expenses and a temporary support to stabilize the family financially.

Verse for the family.

PSALM 34:18
The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
