CAMPBELL – Funeral services will be Friday, May 18, 2018, at 5 p.m. at the Wasko Funeral Home, followed by a Divine Liturgy at St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church at 5:30 p.m., with the Rev. Kevin Marks officiating, for Raymond Hanuscak, 90, who passed away early Monday morning.

Ray was born Oct. 9, 1927, in Campbell, the son of Daniel and Mary Kornick Hanuscak.

He was a 1945 graduate of Campbell Memorial High School and was a lifelong area resident.

Ray served his country in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953, where he earned the rank of Corporal, while serving in the Korean War. He was a shift foreman and a No. 1 pierce plugger at Youngstown Sheet and Tube, retiring in 1981.

Ray was a parishioner of St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church, and served as a member of the Civics Club and the Couples’ Club and was a long-time church bingo worker. He was a proud volunteer at St. Elizabeth Hospital for many years, a member of the VFW in Struthers, a Little League umpire and an avid bowler and golfer.

Ray will be deeply missed by his wife, the former Rosemary Kochanski, whom he married Sept. 19, 1953, at St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Church; his daughter, Gloria (Michael) Pallante of Boardman; his son, Allen Hanuscak of Columbus; daughter-in-law, Joan (Paul) Ruchtie of Canfield; grandchildren Alyssa (Anthony) Ferraro of Canfield, Anthony Pallante of Boardman, Jeff Hanuscak of Philadelphia, Lisa (Dave) Swarm of Austintown, Mike (Tara) Hanuscak of Columbus, Nick Hanuscak of Georgia, Katie (Adam) McMurray of Boardman, Paul E. Ruchtie of Canfield and Kristen (Adam) Crist of Rootstown; and seven great-grandchildren.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his great-grandson, Eli McMurray, and an infant brother.

Ray’s family wishes to especially thank the staff of Austintown Healthcare and Hospice of the Valley for the exceptional care given to Ray during his time of need.

Ray will be laid to rest at St. Michael Byzantine Catholic Cemetery in Campbell.
