In Care of the Family
Steve A. Janecek, 60, of Wahoo, NE, entered into rest on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at his home in Wahoo. He was born in Wahoo, NE on January 18, 1956 to Robert and Dolores (Humlicek) Janecek. He grew up with four other siblings on a family farm south of Wahoo. He graduated from Wahoo Bishop Neumann in 1974.
Steve then worked construction for about three years before joining Burlington Northern Railroad in Lincoln, NE in 1977. He married Karen Hass and had two children, Sarah and Joel. He continued to work for BNSF until his retirement of 39 years in January 2016. He enjoyed traveling, camping, hunting, socializing with friends and family, playing with grandchildren and cruising around town.
He is survived by his children Sarah (Jed) Droge and Joel Janecek; his grandsons Everest and Theodore Droge; mother Dolores; siblings Daniel, Karen (Scott) Miller, David, and Julie (Daryl) Johnson; many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his father Robert Janecek.
Sending my prayers and hugs to the entire Janecek family. I love you all like you are my family! I always enjoyed talking to Steve and him telling stories about when you guys were young. Our deepest sympathies to you all! Rest in Peace Steveotch!

Steve was such a wonderful friend when I lived in Nebraska. He, Ron and I had so many laughs over the years. I will always remember those times and laugh.
I want to let you know that if Ron were still alive he would join with me in giving you all our deepest sympathy.
May you always remember Steve’s beautiful smile and laugh. He so loved all of you.
Dan I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. My thoughts and condolences to you and your family.
I see no classmates of Steve wrote in, so on behalf of everyone that went to school in the 60’s & 70’s (St. Wenceslaus & B. Neumann), I will. Lots I could say but see the classic movie @ friends growing-up titled ‘Stand By Me’. The quote: “I never again had any friends like those I had when I was 12. Jesus, does anybody?” Pretty much sums it up. Last I saw Steve was at my Wahoo best friends funeral in Jan. 1992, John Cajka (Steve’s cousin). We chatted briefly & he wanted to ‘party’ but I was all work & no play in those days. I hope he found the peace in death that he sought in life – as we all do. RIP Steve.
