Walter J Golec Jr. age 78 of Monee, Illinois passed away on March 9 th , 2024. Beloved longtime partner to Patricia Watson. Loving father to Randy (Suzanne) Golec, Tiffany (Shawn) VanderMeer and two Stepdaughters Jennifer (Steve) Krause and Heather (Mac) Angell. Devoted Papa to Kami, Alex, Kayla, Teagan, Jonathan, Katherine, Logan, and Wyatt. Dear brother to Patsy McCarty and the late Barbara Anderson. Preceded in death by his parents Walter J. Sr. and Marie (nee Pacholik) Golec.

Wally was a 1964 graduate of Thornton High School. He served proudly in the Army and was a Vietnam Vet.

He was an avid golfer getting his 1st hole in one at the young age of 71. He was a White Sox fan and against his children’s wishes a Dallas Cowboy fan.

Wally was the loudest one in the room and always had A LOT to say. We will miss his stories and corny jokes. We know that he entered through the gates with a golf club in his hand. He will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him.
