Pavel Brutsky, 91, of Utica, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 4, 2024, at the Wynn Hospital.

Pavel was born in Belarus (former Soviet Union) on March 17, 1933. He was the youngest of 7 children. He married Nadezhda Brutskaya on November 27, 1960, a blessed union that lasted for 63 years. Pavel loved and adored his wife and couldn’t imagine his life without her. He was heartbroken after she passed away on May 10, 2024. God has granted his wish to be with the love of his life.

Pavel dedicated his life to the Lord and his family. He worked long hours to provide for his family. He will be remembered for his humble and gentle manners. Pavel was a long-serving deacon of a local church in Belarus.

In June of 1989, the entire family immigrated to the United States. Pavel enjoyed a new life and the religious freedom this country offered. He was a member of the Slavic Pentecostal Church and served as a deacon for over a decade.

Pavel was a wonderful and caring father to his 10 surviving children and their families: son Andrei and his wife Liuba, son Pavel and his wife Mira, son Konstantin and his wife Inna, daughter Svetlana and her husband Vladimir Paniuska, daughter Maria and her husband Sergey Mialik, daughter Valentina, daughter Galina and her husband Pavel Brutsky, son Nikolay, daughter Natalya and her husband Victor Myalik and daughter Tatyana Gorbachevskaya. Pavel will be remembered by his 40 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. All his siblings preceded him.

The family is grateful for the prayers and support of the congregation of the Slavic Pentecostal Church with special thanks to Pastor Vasily Zhushma for his support.

A funeral service will be held on June 9th, at the Slavic Pentecostal Church, at 5 pm. Calling hours will be from 4 pm to 5 pm before the service.
