Lester Warcholek

Lester P. Warcholek

Age 56 of Romeoville passed away on Saturday October 27, 2018 at AMITA Health Adventist Medical Center in Bolingbrook.

Survivors include his wife of 38 years: Camila Lynn (nee Rybicki) Warcholek of Romeoville; his mother: Patricia Warcholek of Channahon; two children: Tiffany DeValois and Jason Warcholek; three grandchildren: Jacob, Grace and Julianna; two siblings: Gregory (Nancy) Warcholek and Christina (John) Daurer; brother and sister-in-law: James (Dawna) Rybicki and Christy (Pat) Davis, and several nieces and nephews, as well as aunts, uncles and cousins.

Lester was preceded in death by his father Helmut Warcholek.

Born September 15, 1962 in Chicago, Lester Paul is a son of Patricia (nee Coots) and the late Helmut Warcholek. He was raised and educated in Romeoville and attended Romeoville Schools. Lester graduated from Lincoln School of Technology, and worked as a diesel mechanic for most of his life. He worked for A&K Transport in New Lenox, and also owned and operated L&J Mobil Repair. Lester was a jack of all trades, and had a natural ability to figure out how things work. His knowledge was extensive, and he was able and willing to pass on his skills to anyone, including his son who worked alongside him when he worked for A&K Transport.

He was passionate about spending his time outdoors. Lester was an avid fisherman, and one of his favorite spots was Pure Rod and Gun Club in Plainfield. He enjoyed vegetable gardening and feeding the squirrels, and was a lover of all animals, especially dogs. Lester was a true people person, whose contagious personality left a significant impact on those who met him. His persistent nature and gratefulness for the treatment he received these past few years while he was ill was evident to his family and caregivers, who will miss him deeply.

Though no longer with us physically, there is reassurance in knowing that Lester believed in the Lord, and is now in His presence.  It is also through his selfless gift of organ and tissue donation that the family is comforted in knowing that Lester continues to be of assistance to others in need.

Per the family’s wishes, cremation rites have been accorded.
