Alexius Boryenace

ALEXIUS “ALEX” BORYENACE age 70, beloved husband of Jane Christen; loving father of Vanessa “Chrissy” Boryenace (husband Michael Salusky) and Allison Donohue (husband Dan); devoted grandfather of Aoife and Maggie; cherished son of the late Alexander and Catherine (nee Perovich); dearest brother of Ronald Srsa (wife Laura), Thomas, Ollie Kay, and Charles (wife Debbie); treasured brother-in-law of Donald and Linda Christen, Sandra and Ronald LaMacchia and Terri and Timothy Bretz; dear uncle and great-uncle of many.

Alex was born on April 17, 1949 in Cleveland, OH and passed away on June 12, 2019. He lived in Concord for the past 22 years and previously resided in Willoughby. Alex graduated from Eastlake North High School in 1968. He was a carpenter by trade who worked as owner/operator of his own residential construction business. Alex enjoyed gardening, collecting and riding motorcycles, fishing, golf and travel- especially to Mexico. He loved all kinds of music and Jackie Wilson was his favorite.  Alex was a hard worker, friendly and social with a quick wit. He was one in a million, original, and the world will be a lesser place without him. Alex had many friends and will be missed by all.

    Dear Jane,
    I’m so sorry to hear about Al, my thoughts and prayers are with you. He will be deeply missed.


  3. To the Boryenace family.
    While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you Based on the promise God gives at Job 14:14,15 Until then hold on to the precious time and the love you shared..

  4. My condolences to Jane and Al’s entire family! The sadness will subside. The Joy of his memory will endure. Al was a smart, witty, trusted and loyal friend since 1st grade. “God speed old buddy”

    The last time I saw Alex was at the Eastlake North Great ’68 class reunion less than one year ago.. We talked about – what else – our mutual love of fishing and some of the places we had dropped a line into the water. We didn’t ply “who’s caught the largest” but given that Alex liked to fish the saltwater off Mexico for big-game species, I suspect his sailfish beat my tarpon. The waters are never the same when they lose a good angler. Tight lines, Alex.
