BOARDMAN - Robert J. Volsko, 70, formerly of Youngstown’s west side, passed away early Tuesday morning, March 26, 2019, at Greenbriar Health Care Center on South Avenue in Boardman following a brief illness.
Robert was born June 19, 1948, in Youngstown, a son of the late Joseph and Mary Kraynak Volsko, was a 1969 graduate of Chaney High School and a lifelong area resident.
Robert worked as a caretaker for Suburban Group on Fifth Avenue and for Giant Eagle collecting shopping carts before retiring to No Limits, where he was a secretary, answering phones.

Robert was an amazing artist. His heart was pure, and his love for God was unshakeable. He was known for his famous saying, “I know, I know... my brain is like a computer, I forget nothing.”
Robert will be greatly missed by his Turning Point and No Limits families, and will be especially missed by his girlfriend, Paula, and his best friend, Nathan Sandusky. When Robert loved, he did it with all his heart and he loved so many. Tracey, Charles, Judy, Tyson, Gifty, Morris, Debra, Colby, Anita, Lori, Laurie, Gary, Betsy, Sylvia, Anthony, Tracey, Bobby, Audrey, Austin, Pat, Britt, Gannon, and Joe, and so many more. He loved them all without limitations.
Robert’s faith held him in good stead during the last week of his life, and he comforted everyone by telling them to be strong and not to cry, and that all should pray for him as he was going to be returning home to his beloved mother and brother. Robert’s older brother, Michael, passed away in March of 2018.
