Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Dusan Bakala. Dusan entered into rest on March 22, 2021.  He was surrounded by his immediate family and virtually with his family in Slovakia.  He was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend. Dusan left behind his wife Anne, a daughter Jennifer and her husband Peter, (who was from the same village in Slovakia as Dusan), his son Michael, with his wife, Samantha, his grandchildren Peter (Petrik) and Sofia (Sofinka), his mother, Lydia, his brothers and their wives, Milan and Gabriela, Jozef and Martina, Lubo and Andrea.  He will also be forever remembered by his nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends  Dusan loved his family.  When he couldn't be in Slovakia, he called home to talk with his family everyday.  His loving father, Jozef, passed away a month before Dusan and now he is at peace with his father and his grandparents.  He met his wife, Anne, and was married in Slovakia in 1988. They came to America to start their lives together. When Dusan came to the United States, he worked as a mechanic for Rosedale Nursery for many years.  He spent every day with his close friend, Mike, who helped him learn how to communicate in english. He enjoyed everything that had a motor and an engine. He was someone who had a vision and headed straight for it. When he wanted something, he made it happen.   After he left the nursery, he became self-employed. Dusan was very proud of his Slovak culture. He was surrounded by a community of Slovak friends who always made him feel right at home.  Everyone was welcomed into his home and he made sure that they would have a good time. He enjoyed music, dancing and hosting a good party. We will always remember him saying “nazdravia”!

Gone too soon at age 54.  He will be dearly missed.

S hlbokym žiaľom oznamujeme všetkým príbuzným, známym a priateľom, že náš milovaný manžel, otec, syn, brat, švagor, svokor, strýko, priaťeľ  Dušan Bakala  nás navždy opustil dňa 22. marca 2021 vo veku 54 rokov. V poslednej chvíli bol obklopený najbližšou rodinou a prakticky so svojou rodinou zo Slovenska vďaka video hovoru.   Dušan po sebe zanechal svoju manželku Aňičku, dcéru Jennifer a jej manžela Petra (ktorý bol z rovnakej dediny na Slovensku ako Dušan), syna Michaela s manželkou Samanthou, jeho vnučata Petra (Petrika) a Sofiu (Sofinku), jeho matku Lydiu  , jeho bratov a ich manželky: Milana a Gabrielu, Jozefa a Martinu, Luboša a Andreu.  Navždy si ho budú pamätať aj jeho netere, synovci, vzdialena rodina a drahí priatelia.  Jeho milujúci otec Jozef zomrel mesiac pred Dušanom s ktorým je teraz v pokoji ako aj so starými rodičmi. Dušan miloval svoju rodinu.  Keď nemohol byť na Slovensku, každý deň volal domov, aby sa porozprával s rodinou a priateľmi.  So svojou Aňičkou sa spoznal na Slovensku a s ktorou sa oženil v roku 1988. Potom prišli do Ameriky, aby začali svoj spoločný život. Dušan dlhé roky pracoval ako mechanik v zahradkarskej firme Rosedale, kde každý deň trávil so svojím blízkym priateľom Majkom, ktorý mu tiež pomáhal naučiť sa komunikovať po anglicky. Zaujimalo a bavilo ho všetko, čo malo motor. Bol to niekto, kto mal víziu a smeroval priamo k nej.  Keď niečo chcel, tak to dosiahol. Po odchode z firmy, kde pracoval si vybudoval svoj biznis.   Dušan bol na svoju slovenskú kultúru veľmi hrdý.  Obklopovalo ho veľa slovenských priateľov, vďaka ktorým sa vždy cítil ako doma.  Každý bol v jeho dome vítaný a postaral sa o to, aby sa dobre bavili.  Bavila ho hudba, tanec a poriadna zábava.  Vždy si budeme pamätať, ako povedal “NAZDRAVIE“!

   Bude nám veľmi chýbať!!!
