Willie was born to Willie James and Winnie C (Nemec) Matejka in Bryan, Texas on December 30, 1952. He was a true gift of friendship to all he met. His family collectively speaks of his high regards of integrity and unconditional love for all. Willie he had no enemies in life. Willie was a man who had many talents and he unselfishly shared those with anyone needing help with all kinds of projects. Willie was known for his self-initiation of completing a project even before he was asked to help; that’s just the way he was described by his family. His family and friends will definitely miss his kindness and love. He was a man who enjoyed the great outdoors while fishing and hunting. While his indoors recreational activities included bowling, up to a few months ago, and was always ready for great casino trip. He was a man of quiet faith as a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church.

His son Danny Matejka; his parents Willie and Winnie; his brother Charles; brother-in-law Curtis Eugene Lusk, all pre deceased him.

Willie’s legacy continues on in the life of his daughter Amie Matejka and husband Carlton; the mother of his children Shirley; his sisters Charlene Lusk, Mae W Fazzino and husband Joe, Gladys Beasley and husband Larry; his brother Frank Matejka and wife Dana; his sister-in-law Sue Matejka; his three adored grandchildren Amber, Jessica, and Colton; and his great-grandchildren Michael, Anthony, and Mia; his nephews and nieces; and extended family and friends whom he loved.

  1. Death comes like the rain regardless of the plans we have made; it announces its presence with thunder and gust of driving wind. Helpless are we to change its course; so we endure and remember Gods promise of new life.

    Willie, so kind and faithful a friend to many, carried a heart light and loving; even when his struggles took hold, he brought us cheer. He is greatly missed.

  2. The tide recedes, but leaves behind
    Bright seashells on the sand.
    The sun goes down but gentle warmth
    Still lingers on the land.
    The music stops and yet it lingers on
    In sweet refrain.
    For every joy that passes
    Something beautiful remains.

  3. Amie, the video is beautiful and a wonderful tribute to your daddy. Megan and I loved Willie so. You and your family are in my prayers,

  4. Wow, how I do miss Willie’s sweet soul! He was so caring and never let a friend down. Willie was to be in my wedding when he found out he first had cancer. He was too week due to treatments to attend. Willie was always there for me. I called him monthly to check on him, he did not want to burden me with worry and asked that I not come see him. I do miss my dear friend, and it came as a shock to search him online and find his obituary. I do know he talked of his daughter and grand and great grandchildren with love. Bragged on his sisters food, and anyone else that would feed him. I know he loved you all!! We will see him soon, one fine day.
