Phillip Anthony Janacek passed away on Thursday, July 24, 2014, in The Woodlands, Texas, after an eight-year battle against multiple myeloma. He was born June 5, 1944, in Hereford, to Ben and Olga Janacek.

In 1955 the entire family moved home to Hobson. He graduated in 1962 from Karnes City High School. Phil then joined the U.S. Air Force and served his country for four years, stationed at McChord AFB in Tacoma, Wash. On April 30, 1966, he married his wife, Yvonne Trial, in St. Boniface Catholic Church in Hobson. While in the service, he saw the world and developed a passion for aircraft and travel. Over the next 40 years, he pursued his passion, working in the airline industry as an aircraft maintenance manager. His career gave him the opportunity to move several times, living in Texas, Colorado, California, Washington, and Oklahoma. But Phil’s favorite place on earth was Hawaii. He had visited briefly while in the Air Force but went more than 20 times as an adult. His last trip to Hawaii was in 2011 to celebrate his 45th wedding anniversary. During his life, Phil enjoyed spending time with his family, hunting, and making himself available to anyone in need of help. He was well-known wherever he lived as the first person to call when you needed a helping hand. He was active in the Knights of Columbus and the Historical Society in Magnolia, where he lived the last six years of his life.

Phil is survived by his wife of 48 years, Yvonne; two sons, Brian and Steven; seven brothers and sisters and their spouses, Bea and Bill Jarzombek, Ben and Dianne Janacek, Kay and Mike Vajdos, Larry and Bonnie Janacek, Margaret and David Ryan Sr., Rebecca and Tim Janacek, and Jeanette Janacek.

Interment was held on Tuesday, July 29, in the St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery in Hobson.
