Anthony J. "Bo" Chmura III

Died Dec. 27, 2017


Anthony John Chmura III, 52, died unexpectedly Dec. 27, 2017, with his family by his side at St. Mary’s of Michigan hospital in Saginaw.

Anthony “Bo” was born Aug. 8, 1965, in Tawas City. Bo was a diehard Michigan Wolverines and Detroit Tigers fan. He worked in the medical field for 20-plus years, then for the Iosco-Arenac District Library system, and was the assistant manager and master gardener of Tawas Bay Resort in Tawas. Bo truly enjoyed working with the community and he was always willing to lend a helping hand.

Bo is survived by his parents, Dennis M. Sr. and Phyllis (Pierson) Kolevar; grandmother, Betty (Joe) Kolevar-Shinevar; brother, Shawn (April) Chmura; sister, Phyllis “Jane” (Jim) Smith; brother, Denny (Gina) Kolevar; brother, Jimmy Lambert; his nephews and nieces, Joshua, Chad, Jessica, Shawn Jr., Justine, Tyler, Brooke and Emalee, all of whom he was very proud of. He will be missed by his special friends, Lori “Korn” Kohn, Cathy “Murph” Murphy, Jerry (Barb), Bob (Karla), Dan (Jan), Dennis (Shirley), Jim Stamm and Father Boks; as well as many adoring aunts and uncles.

Bo was preceded in death by brother, Robin Lambert; grandfather, Anthony Chmura I; grandmother, Anna Chmura; Anthony “Sony” Chmura II; grandfather, Michael Kolevar; and good friend, “Buck” Lacey.

Bo was truly loved by so many and his sudden departure is a great loss felt by us all. He will live forever in our hearts and memories, and for many years through his selfless donation of his organs. We love you, Bo.

Per Bo’s wishes, organ donations have been made to the Gift of Life. Cremation has occurred and the spreading of his ashes will take place at a future date; there will not be a funeral or memorial service held. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Lee-Ramsay Funeral Home Standish Chapel.
