Edward A.”Eddie” Komenda, Jr. 64 of Valparaiso entered into eternal rest Friday, November 10, 2017 at the Long Term Care Center in Wahoo, NE.  He was born September 25, 1953 in Fort Bragg, NC to Edward and Helen (Walla) Komenda.  Eddie grew up on a farm north of Valparaiso.  He attended North Star School District #115, graduated from Bishop Neumann High School and graduated from Southeast Community College in Milford, NE with a degree in radio electronics.

Eddie is survived by his father, Edward Komenda, Sr. of Valparaiso, siblings, Nancy (Eric) Bordovsky of Valparaiso, Larry (Sherry) Komenda of Valparaiso, Karen Wernsing of Lincoln; nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles cousins and friends.

    Family of Eddie Komenda,

    Eddie was a wonderful technician and helped Legion Baseball of York time and time again. It was always a pleasure to work with Eddie and to have him repair our equipment or to do a pre-season check of the ballpark speakers, amplifier and microphones. I used to pick him up at Radio Shack by the back door in the alley. When I said I would be there at a specific time, he wanted me there at that time–not earlier than and certainly not later than.

    He was a true professional and York Legion Baseball will miss him and the outstanding services he provided.

    Jack Vincent
