Ruslan Telepko, 49, of Parsippany, New Jersey passed away on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at Morristown Medical Center.
Ruslan was born on May 24, 1971 in Lviv, Ukraine. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Igor and Anna (nee Babiak) Telepko.
He was a member of the St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Church. Ruslan was one of the best people you could ever know. He excelled in everything he did and had a genuine love of learning. He loved to fix anything he could get his hands on. Whether it be animals, cars, houses, even just a remote, he was there to help. For the past 13 years, he worked at the Parsippany Troy Hills Animal Hospital, and he loved every minute of it. He spent his free time watching typical dad shows, about cars and goldmining and his favorite- making moonshine. He loved helping others and would drop anything for someone in need. Anyone who met Ruslan knew how contagious his big-bellied laugh was. He would light up any room with just a crack of his smile. And he loved his family more than anything.
Ruslan is survived by his wife, Oksana Telepko and his two daughters, Marta and Kaitlen. He is also survived by his parents Igor and Anna Telepko; sister, Nataliya and husband Bohdan; godchildren Adrian, Solomiya, Maximillian and Oleh; sisters-in-law Halyna and Myroslava.
