Robert F Mahalik Sr.
January 15, 1929 – August 30, 2020
Robert F. Mahalik, Sr. of Carrollton, Texas, with his family by his side and a baseball game on the television, went to be with his Lord and Savior on the afternoon of Sunday, August 30th 2020. Bob was born on January 15th, 1929, on a Sunday morning in Dickson City, Pennsylvania. He graduated from high school and joined the United States Army at the age of 17. While in the Army, he served as a medic and was a part of the WWII occupation forces in Japan. Upon returning to Dickson City and civilian life in 1948, he became an electrical engineer. It was in the small coal mining town of Enyon, Pennsylvania that he found and later married, Ann Marie Misko, the love of his life for the last 64 years. Together, they spent many years traveling across Europe from one Air Force Base to another. He served as a civilian advisor working on flight simulators for the United States Air Force. In June 1961, he had his first son, Robert F. Mahalik, Jr., at the U. S. Air Force Base in Bitburg, West Germany. Bob, his wife, Ann, and his son, Bobby, soon returned to the States and the family continued traveling across the US as part of his job. They finally settled down in Irving, Texas in 1968. Here, he and Ann would have their second son, John Arthur Mahalik, in July 1970. Both boys would go on to graduate high school, play college baseball, receive their degrees and start families of their own. Bob was a proud member of Saints Mark’s Episcopal Church in Irving, Texas, a member of the VFW, enjoyed watching baseball, playing golf and having a cold beer now and again. Bob is survived by his wife, Ann Marie Mahalik, son Robert Mahalik, Jr and wife, Angie, son John Mahalik and wife, Brook. Grandchildren Robert Mahalik, III and wife, Taylor, Michael Mahalik, Marisa Mahalik, Johnny Mahalik, and Jayson Mahalik. Overall, a “Life Well Lived” for the son of a second-generation, Polish immigrant, coal mining father and housewife mother from a small town in Northeast, Pennsylvania. To be able to travel the world and the United States, to raise his family to not have excess but to never want for anything they needed especially his time, attention, and love. To be with the love of his life for over 64 years and for her to still be madly in love with him and he with her. To be well respected and loved by his family, friends, as well as, the friends and neighbors of his children and grandchildren. He was a friend to all, always had a smile on his face and a good word to say to everyone. Most of all, he was a good man who worshiped the Lord and who loved and cared for his family until the end. We should all be so lucky to have someone like him to call husband, father, grandfather, and friend. Services are pending at this time.

Dear Ann, Bobby, and Johnny,
We are deeply saddened at the loss of Mr. Bob. We send our deep love to you and prayers for heavenly comfort and peace.
Having been neighbors for 24 years, we accumulated countless memories of cherished times with Mr. Bob. Whether in the front yard, back yard, around your kitchen table, or on the couch, we could and did, literally spend hours having conversations together. He had a way to always speak a kind or jovial word. Mr. Bob was a special friend and neighborly father to Bobby and I, and a neighborly grandpa to our children. We loved him very much and we are grateful for the imprint he left on our hearts.
Much love to you all,
Bobby and Dawn Barton

We are so sorry for your loss. Bob will absolutely be missed and the world will not be the same without him. I was blessed to have had your father in my life and to know him as “Pop”. I will always remember the love, kindness & laughter Pop brought to my life and to those around him. He would light up a room with that smile of his and his gentle chuckle and contagious laugh always made everything feel better. His smiling face is forever etched in my mind and in my heart. You all are in our prayers.
