Borislav March –Died April, 8 2013

Bo was born June 30th 1963 in Zagreb, Croatia to Ljubica Mikovic-March and Bill March. When Bobo was 6, the family moved to Lawrence, Kansas where he resided since. Bo met the love of his life, Carol, in 1984 and they married in 1990 and she was with him when he passed. In 1993 he graduated from the University of Kansas School of Architecture at the top of his class. He was an accomplished craftsman, designer, and contractor. Some of his well-known renovations were Pachamama’s restaurant, Prairie Fire restaurant, and 901 Kentucky Building. He had a passion for restoring historical buildings. He also donated time and energy to Habitat for Humanity to create affordable housing. He leaves Lawrence with a fine artistic and architectural legacy.

Even as a young boy, Bo had a zest for life that was contagious. He lived every day with tremendous gusto – working hard when it was time to work, but he believed firmly in filling life with good times, too. He had many interests including art, sailboarding, boating, and travel. He was a devoted husband to his wife Carol and a loving father to his sons and generous to those in need. Well-known around town, his community and many friends were central to his life. He left a lasting impression on everyone whom he encountered.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Ljubica Mikovic-March, his paternal grandparents, Herb and Jane March, and his maternal grandparents, Nikola and Zorka Mikovic.

He is survived by his wife, Carol, his sons, Isaac and Arlo of the home, his father, Bill, his brother, Stanimir, Erie, Co., his sister, Sara, Arcata, Ca, his brother, Vincent Walker, Iola, Ks, his brother Miroslav, and his uncles Robert and Richard, Madison,Wi., and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

A service will be held at Rumsey-Yost Funeral home at 2pm Wednesday, April 10th. In honor of Bo’s colorful spirit, please bring fresh cut flowers from your garden or perennials we can plant and enjoy year after year. If you wish, donations can be made to Unity Church of Lawrence or the charity of your choice in Bo’s name.
