Born in Ukraine in 1936, Anatoliy survived the war and had become a pillar of strength for his family. An electrical engineer and a creative inventor, he enjoyed playing chess, studying history, photography, and drawing. He loved fixing anything he could in the house or car. He liked to drive and spent vacations traveling with the family around the country and the world. He was a patient instructor and a "chauffeur" for the youngsters, and a proud great grandfather of three. He will be greatly missed by family and friends and will be remembered as a loving and caring, yet strong and determined man.
