Memory Eternal: Vitali Matveichik

January 25, 2017

We are extremely saddened by the news of the repose of +Vitali Matveichik, on Sunday, January 22.

Vitali is the son of Brenda and the late +Michael Matveichik, who adopted Vitali as a young child and brought him from Russia to the U.S. to receive life-saving heart surgeries through the “Gift of Life” program. Vitali reposed on Sunday, two days shy of his 29th birthday, from complications relating to the heart issues he continued to struggle with.

A wake will be held on Thursday, January 26, from 2-4 PM, and 7-9 PM, at Roma Funeral Home (539 William Floyd Parkway, Shirley, NY 11967). Fr. John will celebrate a memorial service (panikhida) at 8:00 PM.

We grieve with Brenda and all Vitali’s loved ones who now feel the pain of separation, and we join them in holding Vitali up in prayer before Our Lord. May his memory be eternal!
