Louis F. Vacek, 89, of Rosenberg, passed away on May 14, 2016 in Richmond, Texas. He was born to Stanislav and Mary (Gurecky) Vacek on June 19, 1926 in Taiton, Texas. He was raised on the family farm in Fairchilds. Louis' family moved to Rosenberg where he attended Rosenberg High School. He later joined the U.S. Navy and honorably served our country. Louis then bought a diner and met the love of his life, Bonnie Krum. They married and raised 3 children. He then started buying homes and renting them. Louis and Bonnie were owners of Vacek's Club in old downtown Rosenberg for many years. He went on to own several other businesses through the years. Louis was proud to be a WWII Veteran and was affiliated with the V.F.W. Post #3903 (Past Post Commander) and the American Legion.

Louis was known by many people and never met a stranger. He loved sharing his war stories with anyone who would listen. We wished we had more time to make more memories with him, but God called him home. He was a good man and helped many people. We love you, daddy, and will miss you. A huge hole has been left in our hearts, but we have our memories locked in our hearts, and no one can take those away. Goodbye daddy, until we see you again. Tell mom hello for us.

This loving father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend will be missed.
