obit: Virgil Vitek
Virgil Vitek, 68, went to be with his Lord and Savior on April 15, 2006, after a lengthy illness.
He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and a great friend to many. Virgil was in the title industry for over 40 years, most of which were with Stewart Title. He served in the Army Reserves from 1960 to 1965. He was a member of Asbury United Methodist Church, Downtown Rotary Club, and the Corpus Christi Mustangs. He enjoyed working outdoors and traveling, and he loved doing ’cooks’ with the Mustangs. Virgil will always be remembered for his wonderful sense of humor, his kindness to others, his joyful laugh and his radiant smile.
He was preceded in death by his parents Ed and Emilie Vitek, brother Ed. R. Vitek and his first wife Fran Vitek.
He will be greatly missed by all of us that survive him: his loving wife Cathy Vitek, son Keith Vitek of San Antonio, Texas, daughter Jennifer (Paul) Brotze of Glenmoore, Pennsylvania, stepdaughters Terri (Trent) Seaman of Westchester, Pennsylvania, and Toni (Bill) Alford of Corpus Christi, Texas, grandchildren, Grant and Calvin Brotze, Torri, Lauren and Jonathan Seaman, and Catie and Allison Alford, in-laws Neel and Allie Fulghum, brother Robert (Janet) Vitek, sister Virginia (Mingo) Rendon, sister-in-law Herminia Vitek and brothers-in-law David (Wanda) Harrison, Neel (Lupita) Fulghum III, and Chris Naylor, sister-in-law Jerry (Clarence) Byrd and all of his nieces and nephews.
Our family would especially like to thank his caregivers, Elida Callejo and Irene Silvas and to all of the people at Nurses on Wheels Hospice.
