St. Theodosius Cemetery Memorials

Serving Ohio's Oldest Orthodox Christian Church

The history of Kotecki Family Memorials dates back to founder Joseph Kotecki in 1896. During the same year, a small group of immigrant Russians formed the parish of St. Theodosius Orthodox Christian Church in Tremont. 

The St. Theodosius Cathedral was later constructed between 1911-1912, and is considered one of the finest examples of Russian church architecture in the United States. It is listed on the US National Registry of Historic Places.

The St. Theodosius Cemetery has served this faithful community for nearly a century, and is located with the city of Brooklyn. Among those memorialized include Nick Knox, a member of the American punk rick band, “The Cramps”. He also played with Cleveland-based band “Electric Eels” appearing on six studio albums, and toured extensively until his retirement in 1961.
