|Your pain is gone and your soul flies free, but a part of you will stay forever with us -here.|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Bobor aka Lubomír Kunik, 61, born on May 27, 1955 and passed away on February 1, 2017.
Moved by the beauty and freedom of nature, he set off at a young age from his hometown in Slovakia to explore a new life in Vancouver, Canada. Bobor took every moment to explore each acre of wilderness and climbed to every mountain top he could find. Setting a pace, and never giving up until he reached the top, he was built tough as a nail. He shared his experiences through his lifelong passion for photography, and elaborate and entertaining stories. An intellectual man and professor by trade, Bobor was always willing to share his vast knowledge and experience. Precise, and deliberate in his actions, he was also fiercely loyal and open hearted. His saying "Kamaráti Ahoj !" will be deeply missed around campfire.
Bobor, we can no longer see you with our eyes, touch with our hands, but we will feel you in our hearts forever. We miss your voice, your laugh, your stories, your wisdom, ...we miss you greatly!
"Bola to nečakaná správa o jeho zabití. Prišla mi to oznámiť manželka Dadka, ktorá tomu nemohla sprvu uveriť.Veď len nedávno tu bol a prišiel na návštevu aj svojich krstných detí Petra a Dášky. Stretli sme sa v Ekoparku v Prešove, kde Dáška pracuje. Bobra povodila po parku. Potom sme išli navštíviť Amara a Ťapiho. Neskôr sme ho odviezli autom do Košíc. Tam sme sa rozlúčili poslednýkrát.
Bol to fantastický priateľ ,kamarát a bytosť. Veľká česť jeho pamiatke, uchováme si ťa v srdci. Smútiaca rodina Zuščáková."
"Lubo was a wonderful and a very kind man. He was a very hardworking and dedicated Ricoh employee! We all feel very sad to hear the shocking news. I have known him for the last 6 years. Lubo, you will be missed dearly!
We pray for your soul to rest in eternal peace. Ameen"
"Lubo was a hard-working, straight forward person with a gentle character. He would come to our office to build our printers and really cared about doing a complete job. It's tremendously sad that he has left us so tragically."
"Lubo was so wonderful and friendly. It's hard to believe such an unthinkable act has been committed. I can't put these sad feelings into words. Lubo wherever you are I hope you are in a peaceful place...and I pray that justice will be served to the person that did this to you."
"The folks on our floor here at BC Hydro feel devastated and we wanted to pass along our condolences.
We felt we knew Lubo well. He provided us with amazing service, he seemed a kind man and all of us who are familiar feel so badly today. He was so dedicated to his role and we will miss him very much.
Please pass along our sympathy to your Ricoh family.
Cori, other administrative assistants and from everyone here at
15th floor of Dunsmuir"
"We are saddened to hear about the senseless death of dear Lubo. He was our dedicated technician and always here at a moment’s notice. He was such a nice man and always willing to help. Our thoughts are with his friends and family. May he rest in peace.
From all the Admins at Powerex."
"Fantastický priateľ a obrovský milovník prírody, drahý Bobor nás opustil.
Spolu sme zrástli v Slovenských horách. Jeho neskrotiteľná túžba po osobnej slobode ho donútila emigrovať, nečakane sme sa takto stretli v Rakúsku a tam sa spolu pripravovali na ďalšie kroky novým životom. Našiel si byt vo vysnívanej polohe blízko pri oceáne a pri Stanley Parku aby mal každodenný kontakt s prírodou -- a to ani nehovorím o doslovne stovkách viacdenných, náročných vandrov osamote alebo o mnohých, ľudsky nádherných trampských stretnutiach a indiánskych Powwow.
V tej obrovskej divočine v B.C. žil svoj sen a tešil sa na penzijné návraty na Slovensko, nesplnené to plány. Muž pevných zásad, silnej vôle a jemný zároveň, s ohromným rozhľadom v technike, politike, humanite...
Vždycky pomáhajúci a potíšku veselý – vskutku jedinečný partner a úzky priateľ. Jeho fotky prírody sú plné krásy a dokonalosti, keď sme fotili spolu, tak Lubo, Tvoje boli krajšie.
Tvoje návštevy, naše spoločné výlety a plány na penziu sa už nikdy nezopakujú a neuskutočnia, v našich srdciach a v nasej pamäti zostaneš navždy, celkom akoby si bol členom nasej rodiny.
"I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear the news of Lubo's tragic death he was a great man and good for others. I will miss him greatly.
Rest in peace."
"To our team mate Lubo from your Ricoh Canada family we will miss you and I think I speak for everyone in quoting Willie Nelson "He was a friend of mine". Left a tribute song for you. Cheers Lubo."
"Mozna Buh potreboval dobreho fotografa tak si Bobora povolal k sobe, :-( bude nam moc schazet, ale mame ho ve svem srdci... Rest In peace, odpocivej v pokoji kamarade."
