Obituary for William "Bill" or "Bo" Bobek

William “Bill” or “Bo” Bobek passed away at his home in Plainville, Kansas on August 27, 2018. He was 96 years old.

Bill was born in Breezyhill, Kansas on January 30, 1922 to Louis and Paulene (Goveshek) Bobek.

After living through the Great Depression and working at a CCC camp in Utah, Bill served in the United States Navy from December 10, 1942 to December 30, 1945. He served during World War II and crossed the Equator three times during his tour of service. Bill and Tina Hamel met at Leta’s Café in Plainville where she worked as a waitress. He won her heart when he left a silver dollar under his plate each day she served him. They were married on September 10, 1960 in Plainville where they raised three children. Bill spent most of his working life as a tank setter, and later as a tank salesman, in the oilfield. He and Tina purchased B&M Recreation in 1977. It later became known as Tina’s Recreation, a place fondly remembered by many. Bill was an avid fan of the card game "Blitz" and was always tenacious about keeping his hand hidden from the other players. He enjoyed spending his later years with family, friends, and their three puppies, Sophie, Toby, and Lucy.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Rudy and Louie (Bill’s twin); and three sisters, Madeline, Christina, and Helen.

He is survived by his wife of the home; daughter, Kayla (Rocky) Hamblet; sons, Kris (Stacey) Bobek, and Kevin (Shari) Bobek; seven grandchildren, Lindsey Hamblet, Lacey (Kenny) Sweeney, Landon Hamblet, Samantha Bobek, Colton Bobek, Dalton Bobek, and Simone Bobek; and two great-grandchildren, Tripp and Twynn Tetuan.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30am on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Plainville. Burial will follow in the Sacred Heart Cemetery. Visitation will be from 1:00-8:00pm on Wednesday at the funeral home with a Vigil Service and Rosary at 7:00pm. Family will receive friends from 6:00-8:00pm.
