George Louis Simecek
June 10, 1941 – July 10, 2018
George Louis Simecek, 77, of Moulton, completed his earthly journey on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, and is now enjoying his eternal rewards with our Heavenly Father.
He was born on June 10, 1941, in Moulton, Texas, to Louis and Millie Rehak Simecek.
He was drafted into the United States Army on December 12, 1963, and his military occupational specialty was 11B10 infantry. During his short service, he acquired the rank of Specialist E4 and was awarded the Vietnam Service Medal and Vietnam Campaign Medal. He also made marksman in rifle and expert rifle with M-14. George was honorably discharged from the Army on December 11, 1965, and afterwards, received the Purple Heart.
George then continued his life journey in Houston where he worked for over 20 years in the drywall business. He moved back to Moulton in the early 1990s and really enjoyed the small-town life. He loved going to picnics, the Moulton Jamboree, and dance halls, and he had a passion for all types of music and operated his own DJ business- Dance Hall Sound- for several years. An avid sports fan, George could talk for hours about almost any sport but really loved his Houston Rockets, Astros, and Texans.
George was a loyal member in many local organizations including the Moulton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #6971, Moulton American Legion Post #392, Moulton Lions Club, and the Po.L.K.of A. He was also a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Moulton.
George was preceded in death by his father, mother, and brother Marvin Simecek. He is survived by his children Shannon Simecek of Houston, Candi Simecek of Houston, Cole Simecek of Austin, and Macie Simecek of Moulton, and two grandchildren, McKenna Simecek and Austin Goodwin of Houston. George is also survived by four sisters, Margie Muenster of Ganado, Helen Killen of Pearland, Rita and husband Ron Freytag of Tomball, and Gladys Criste of Pearland, as well as several nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind a special friend and former wife, Connie Cheney, who dedicated much of her life and especially the last four years to taking care of George and his home when he suffered his stroke. She truly was an angel on Earth.
A luncheon will be served at the American Legion Hall, 500 S. Lavaca, Moulton, Texas 77975 after services.

I had the pleasure of placing caregivers and myself in George's home to help care for him.
He was such a joy to take care of. We got to know his sense of humor and many, many stories he could tell. I, along with many others will surely miss him. My deepest sympathies to the family whom I got the pleasure of knowing also. May he rest in peace and I'm sure share many stories in heaven.

Gladys, I just heard George passed away and the funeral is at 10am today. Please accept my apologize for not attending Georges funeral as well as my heart felt condolences. I did not know George well but the times we had contact, I found him to be a sweet, respectful gentlemen. My 95 year old mother was just talking about you and George a few weeks ago and she said that he was always so nice and respectful to her. Please let the rest of the family know I am thinking about them during this sad time.
Your old classmate and friend, Terry.
