Petro Donets, 76, of Utica went to be with the Lord on April 14, 2019 at Sitrin Healthcare surrounded by his loving family members.

He was born on February 27, 1943 in the village of Rulikov, Ukraine, a youngest of three children of Nikita and Olga (Korol) Donets.

He married Olga Semenets on February 8, 1965. The couple enjoyed 39 years of marriage when Olga passed away on January 19, 2004.

In January of 2006, Petro immigrated to the United States to be reunited with his children and their families. On February 27,2008 he married Anna Shostak.

He is survived by his wife, Anna, a blessed union that lasted for 11 years. He was a wonderful, caring father to his three surviving children: daughter Yelena Ogievich and her husband Petr; daughter Valentina Perva and her husband Vasyl; and son Mykola and his wife Liliya. Petro will also be remembered by his twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, whom he adored and enjoyed spending time with. He left us a wonderful legacy and will be missed greatly.

A heartfelt thanks is offered to friends and families for their prayers, love and support.
