Nate's Polish Roots

Nate Bukaty's great grandparents immigrated from Poland ...Sophia and Stanley Egnatic and  Leo and Anna Bukaty.  Leo and Anna lived at 62 S. 8th Street on Polish Hill for over 60 years. Their six sons attended St. Joseph's Grade School, including Nate's grandfather, Andrew Bukaty.

Andrew (1915-1990) married Josephine Egnatic (1920-2007) in 1946 at St. Joseph's where they had both attended school. Josephine sang in the choir for decades. Their four children also attended St. Joseph's: Nate's father- Steve (c-1961), Andy (c-1964), Gerry (c-1968) and Kathleen (c-1971). Sadly, Kathleen passed away in June 2016.
