Philip Webernick

Philip, a true man of God, left this world on Thursday, July 2, 2020, after suffering a sudden heart attack. Philip will be greatly missed as he had a servant’s heart of gold and would help anyone and everyone.     

He worked for the Jackson County-Wide Drainage District. Philip and Veronica managed both the KJT Hall and the American Legion Hall for many years. Philip was very active in the Assumption Catholic Church where he served as a Eucharistic minister, an usher and served on the Assumption Cemetery Board. He was very active in the Ganado Knights of Columbus #3204 where he held several offices over the years including Past Grand Knight. He also served as District Deputy for District #146. He was currently the Faithful Navigator of the Father Dan Morales Fourth Degree Assembly #3689.     

Philip is survived by his loving wife Veronica Sulak Webernick; son, Clayton Webernick (Antje); daughter, Meredith Webernick (Robby); granchildren Clayton Jr. (Bubba) and Cameryn Webernick, Tyler Henderson, Ryder Lee Mollnar, Black Boren, and Rhonda Tate, the mother of his children; sisters Peggy Roades (R.H.) and Dorest Girndt (Lawrence), and brother David Webernick (Shirley); in-laws Benny and Emelia Sulak, numerous nieces, nephews, and Godchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Johnnie Ray and Viola Galow Webernick.     

Pallbearers were Clayton Webernick, Robby Mollnar, David Webernick, Wayne Bubela, Carl Hajovsky, Dwayne Taylor, Jesse Rosalez, and Doug and Marty Galow.   

 Services were held at Assumption Catholic Church on Sunday, July 5, with rosary being recited at 12:30 p.m. followed by the Funeral Mass at 1 p.m. Father Kirby Hlavaty officiated. Deacon Anthony ‘Red’ Hensley conducted the burial rite at Assumption Catholic Cemetery.     

The joy of Philip’s life was spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren and extended family – making memories that we will all cherish. He loved the outdoors especially his lawnmower and mowing grass, hunting and fishing. He loved to work Sudoku puzzles. We hope the ‘Red Seal’ snuff tobacco company will not go out of business due to Philip’s death.     

Memorials may be made to the Assumption Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus #304, Assumption Maintenance Fund, or donor’s choice.     

Services were entrusted to Russell Todish of Ganado Funeral Home, 800 S. Third St., Ganado, TX 77962, 361-771-2120.
