Boris was born in Przunac, Croatia on January 8th, 1945. Natasha and Boris have known eachother since they were 10 years old. They were married in 1969 and started a family together. In 1972 they immigrated to Canada and settled in Calgary, Alberta. Although they were in a new country, they found a community of Croatians that made them feel at home. Boris owned and operated a successful painting business, was actively involved with The Calgary Croatian Soccer club for many years and had a deep love for his country. He was a simple man, enjoyed fine wine and seafood especially crab legs. His generosity and kind heartedness showed wherever he went. He was the light of his family's life and will be greatly missed.
