Jo and I remember Willie and Jeanette from St John’s Center. He was always lending a helping hand when our Retrouvaille community was doing a weekend. Thank you Willie for being there for us.

My father was a great man of faith, integrity, and compassion. He always had a ready smile for everyone and loved to share funny stories. He taught me not to wear a hat in the house, to dust yourself off if you were going into town, to not say everything you know, and to wear your Sunday best to Mass! He demonstrated his great faith through many life adversities, always trusting God’s Plan. He was always supportive and proud of his family. His is a great example of a life well lived... and my hero.

Willie had the greatest smile and an inspiration to all of us Subiaco mates.

Great Memories when we visited them on the rice farm--Where we would go rabbit hunting and argue who shot what and always were served a good meal

Daddy was a Great Dad! He was very firm in his religion and religious beliefs. He was well-respected and I think EVERYONE knew him. He was a very kind dad who didn't yell a lot. I remember if he ever said "Damn" with a harsh tone, no one moved or said anything. That's to say he could get his point across without any cussing or harsh words. He loved people and he loved to smile. We will miss him, but we know he is no longer in pain. I am very blessed to have had him for a dad!

I remember seeing him at the seminary when I was visiting my uncle. I have such good memories of your family and Slovak. May he rest in peace. My sincere condolences to all your family. Betty, I would love to be back in touch.

Willie was a great spiritual advisor and mentor to me as I converted to Catholicism when I married his oldest son Larry in 1982. He was a very social person and never met a stranger. His eyes twinkled often during conversations and his smile was sweet and endearing. My own father died shortly after I became a Lisko and Willie easily included me as another daughter. He loved the babies and young children that joined this large family. He will be greatly missed.
