Leroy J Danek

December 27, 1934 ~ September 25, 2018 (age 83)

Leroy John Danek age 83, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday September 25, 2018 after a long battle with Alzheimers. He was born in Dayton, Texas on December 27, 1934 to Minnie Sebesta Danek and John Danek Jr. After graduating Crosby High School, attending UH in Houston and serving in the Army NSA he began a long career. He worked as a Sr Electronics Research Technician in oilfield logging for Gearhart Industries and Schlumberger before semi-retiring and opening the Baytown Lowes Store as a Tool Expert in Tool World. Leroy raised his family in Crosby and moved to his beloved “Danek Country” in San Jacinto County when he retired. His greatest enjoyment in life was his family, which was evident in everything he did. He enjoyed raising cattle, fishing, gardening and electronics repair, but most of all spending time with his family, especially watching them and their children grow up. He was a very quiet, caring person with a good sense of humor and “Mr D” will be loved and missed by all who knew him. He is preceded in death by his parents. Leroy is survived by his beloved wife. Joan York Danek; his children, Joe Danek (and wife Diane), Lea Ann Danek Franta, Daniel Danek (and wife, Lisa); his grandchildren, Danielle Pope (and husband, Will), Ryan Franta (and wife, Krista), Amanda Franta, Dillon and Tylan Danek; his great-grandchildren, Cade, Haygen, Cope and Adalyn. He is also survived by many other relatives and friends.
