Kenneth Ray Smerek

"You have only one life to live, so make the best of it while you can" was the personal philosophy of Kenneth Ray Smerek. Kenny was born July 7, 1961, in Liberty, Texas to Albert George Smerek and Genevieve Dorothy Wleczyk Smerek.

Kenny grew up in Damon, Texas, and his love of cars began when he purchased his first car: a 1969 Plymouth Roadrunner. This ignited a passion for MOPAR muscle cars that Kenny would carry for his entire life. When he wasn't helping people or spending time with his family, he could be found with his friends at car shows and listening to live 80's music such as Journey or Foreigner.

One of Kenny's greatest passions was helping people. He would drop what he was doing, any time or any day, to help relatives, friends, and strangers. Kenny devoted his life to his family, especially his boys Andy and Dustin. He would turn down promotions at his job in order to spend more time with his boys. Kenny loved spending time with his grandkids: Violet and Jake. He shared his love of classic cars with Jake and shared his softer side with Violet.

Kenny passed away on New Years Day at the age of 53. Kenny is survived by his children, Andy Smerek and wife, Erin, and Dustin Smerek and wife, Paulina; grandchildren, Violet Smerek and Jake Smerek; brother Mike Smerek and wife Theresa; nephews Scotty Smerek and wife, Charyl, and Rusty Smerek; great-nieces Skylar Smerek and Shiloh Smerek; along with other relatives and a host of friends.

Visitation will be held Wednesday, January 7, 2015, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a rosary being recited at 7 p.m., at Davis-Greenlawn Funeral Chapel at 3900 B F Terry Boulevard, Rosenberg, Texas.

A funeral mass for Kenny will be held Thursday, January 8, 2015, at 2 p.m., at St. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Damon, Texas, with Father Joseph Phan officiating. Interment will follow in St. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Cemetery in Damon.

Pallbearers will include Andy Smerek, Dustin Smerek, Mike Smerek, Israel Enriquez, Butch Smerek, and Steve Smerek.

In lieu of flowers, Kenny would prefer that donations be made for his grandkids college funds, care of Andy or Dustin Smerek: 11527 Boyd Rd, Needville, TX, 77461. Words of condolences and fond memories may be sent to the above address or www.davisgreenlawnfh.com.

"Time is priceless, yet it costs us nothing. You can do anything you want with it, but you can't own it. You can spend it, but you can't keep it. And once you've lost it, there's no getting it back. It's just gone." -Patricia Arquette
