STRUTHERS, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Edward J. “Boomer” Bokros, 93, died suddenly Tuesday, August 16, 2022, at home. 

Edward was born May 22, 1929, in New Brighton, Pennyslvania, the son of Louis and Josephine Granchay Bokros. 

He attended Struthers High School.

Edward worked as a cement finisher for Local 179 for 58 years until retiring.

He was also a veteran who served his country in the U.S. Army and Merchant Marines. 

He was a longtime active member of Christ Our Savior, St. Nicholas Church, where he served as an altar server and helped with the yearly church festival.
