Gayle Marie Bukach (nee Zolac), age 61, passed away peacefully at home on February 16, 2022 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was the loving and devoted mother of Ashley Bukach (Charles Caldwell), Courtney Bukach (Mitchell Hadden), and Erin Bukach (Michael Occhino). Gayle was born in Cleveland on January 20, 1961 to her late parents Ignatius and Frances Zolac (nee Kobak), whom she cherished dearly. She was also a sister, aunt, niece, cousin, Godmother, and friend to many.

Gayle always made sure her daughters knew just how deeply they were loved, and she often expressed how proud she was of each of them. Teaching, encouraging, and comforting came so naturally to her. She was gentle. She was selfless. She spent countless hours listening. She always knew what to say. She always put her kids first. She was very active at her kids’ schools as they were growing up, supported their interests, and was in the stands for almost every one of her daughters’ games and events, often bringing snacks or cute signs. Even when they became adults, she was their biggest helper and supporter in life.

Her love and care were shared with many. She had a sensitivity and a gift for recognizing the unique needs of others, and put tremendous amount of thought and effort into helping others to the best of her abilities.

Gayle was incredibly smart, resourceful, and strong. She excelled in her various Human Resources, secretarial, and finance positions where her strong work ethic, attention to detail, and top-notch organizational skills served her well. She was the fastest, most accurate typist around. She knew how to make the best out of any situation. This tiny lady showed incredible strength and perseverance in everything she did, no matter how tough the circumstances.

Gayle will be remembered for many things, including her ability to plan and host large get-togethers and make holidays and birthdays very special. She always thought of EVERY detail, and you could count on an abundance of delicious homemade food with multiple versions of dishes made just how everyone likes them. She had many signature dishes including tomato rice soup and cheesecake (IYKYK).

She was also so much fun, had the best sense of humor, and was always up for any adventure. In her day, she was a great athlete and participated in softball, volleyball, and bowling leagues. She enjoyed things like hiking and watching sunsets, and going out with her was a blast!

An avid Cavs fan, Gayle was so excited about the Cavs’ success this current season. It was not uncommon for her to predict or break big NBA news to her family (and she totally could have been an NBA analyst). She loved Channing Frye and his podcast. In true Clevelander fashion, she left this earth on 2-16.

It is no surprise that Gayle has already begun sending signs of love and comfort to her daughters. While she provided more than a lifetime’s worth of love and guidance while she was here, Gayle will be deeply, deeply missed.

A Celebration of Gayle’s Life will be held at a later date.

Gilbert was the first of four sons that were born to this union. Being the grandchild of Rev. Robert Butler, a Baptist preacher; he believed in God and accepted that faith in Jesus was an important aspect of his life. Being the son of a military father, he grew up excelling in basketball, football and baseball, which continued into his adult life. He Graduated in 1969 from John F. Kennedy High School and in 1975 he met the love of his life, Sandy whom he spent more than 45 years together enjoying concerts, social club dinners, and annual car trips traveling to see as much of the USA as possible. His most rewarding job was his present position as Transportation Supervisor at South Franklin Circle Retirement Community in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. He said it was his dream job because he was being paid to be himself and the opportunity to help and have fun with interesting people. He was loved by the staff and all the residents and enjoyed entertaining them regularly with his music performances.

Gilbert enjoyed writing and performing music, fishing trips with his father and brothers, cooking, gardening and sitting around the campfire with family and friends. His greatest gift was that he was natural born entertainer. He was a prolific songwriter who penned lyrics about his experiences, his wife, his health issues and just about anything that would a smile on your face. He and his musical collaborator would record and self-release CD’s of their songs under the moniker “The Hoochie Coochie Man”. Gilbert was someone that everyone wanted to be around. He enjoyed being around everyone, no matter who you were or where you were from.

More than anything else, Gilbert will be forever remembered as a kind-hearted, loving son, brother, husband, father, family member and friend.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” service at a later date. Please contact Sandy Hudgines at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.
