Bill Hosna

Friends of BNC joins the Chicago-area Czech community, friends and family in mourning the January 30th passing of Bill Hosna.

Bill was a charter member of Friends, having joined in 2004. He was Friends' first treasurer, serving for two years through mid-2006. He was then elected vice-president and served four years in that position, through mid-2010.

At the time of his death, Bill was a delegate to the Bohemian National Cermetery Association. His many contributions to our cultural organizations, his welcoming smile, hearty enthusiasm and pride in his Czech heritage will be missed by all of us.
