  1. From the Copan Family

    Written by: Evelyn Copan-Bute

    Dearest Kuvshinikov/ Kush family,
    David was beloved by all of us- the Copan family- we will miss him so! He was a large part of building the Russian Ukrainian church on west 11th in Tremont along with his wife Mary and extended family. We grew up together, celebrating all life and church events together. He was a big man with an even bigger heart.
    Love, Evelyn Copan – for all of the Copans.

  2. We'll miss Uncle David!

    Written by: Tim, Becki, Jonathan, and Benjamin Konuch

    Uncle David was a special person who always had a positive outlook on life! His love for the Lord and love for people were what characterised him. He was a funny, caring, enthusiastic person, and even through his battle with cancer, he found joy in many things and situations. Jonathan and Benjamin considered him their “substitute” grandpa, as their grandpas have both been in heaven for many years. We’re so thankful he is now free from physical pain and suffering, and rejoicing by the side of his Savior, but we’ll miss him! We’re lifting you up in prayer as you adjust to life without him, Dave, Laura, and families! “ABSENT FROM THE BODY, PRESENT WITH THE LORD!”

    Our hearts and prayers go out to the Kush family.
    I met David and his family in Erie, Pa. in 1956 when my parents brought us to America. David’s Family was very helpful during our transition to life in America.
    I have not seen David in many years but, my memories of him have been of a kind, gentle and polite person.
    David is now reunited with his beloved wife Mary.
    God bless each member of the Kush Family.🙏❤️

  4. Uncle David

    Dear David, Laura, and family,
    We loved Uncle David, he always greeted us with a hug and his classic smile every time we saw him. . That is the first picture that comes to mind when I think of him. He loved his family very much and that was evident each time we visited. He lived a full life and reminded us of God’s love for us. He is going to be missed by everyone who knew him.
    God bless your family and be your comfort.
