Obituary posted by : Maria-Rodica Mirghesiu (nee Ciobanca) , neighbor to my parents all his life
Ioan Margin was born in Bocsa (then Szilágy County, Hungary) in 1941. Just across the street from his parents house lived my paternal grandparents (Maria and Ioan Ciobanca) in whose house I was born on July 1, 1946. My parents built a house just 100 m downhill of his parents house in 1947. He was a neighbor to my parents all his life. He died in Bocsa, Salaj, Romania on August 4, 2017. He was married to Reghina Margin (nee Pojar in June 1946), my classmate at the Bocsa School between 1953 and 1959; she was my midwife for my only baby in 1972. They had two boys, Calin and Adrian.
I attended his funeral ceremony at the Bocsa Cemetery on Monday, August 7, 2017.
