November 4, 1975 ~ November 12, 2022
Franklin Chad “Spanky” Matejek, age 47, passed away on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022. Chad was born Nov. 4, 1975, in Houston, TX, to Franklin Matejek and Ann Rogers Matejek. Chad loved to spend time with family and friends. Chad was a strong silent type with a firm handshake and a kind heart who supported his family and friends in every way imaginable. An exceptionally generous man, he made sure everyone around him knew they were important and loved. An amazing husband, who cared for and hopelessly devoted his heart to his wife, Sara Matejek; a doting father, who would do anything for his children; and a loving grandpa to his three adorable youngsters, Chad will be missed by many and forgotten by none. While not the loudest man in the room, he was quick-witted. If you listened closely, he’d inspire a belly laugh from just about anyone. Chad was a man of many talents. Aside from possessing a Texas-sized heart full of love for all, he was an avid fisher, hunter and handyman who chose to always share his joy by surrounding himself with family and friends. He loved few things more than barbequing up his catch or kill from a day out to nourish his loved ones who gathered around to share a laugh. Never a man to shy away from a hard day’s work – or week or month – Chad founded his own company with a friend and business partner. He brought people's visions of homeownership or business ownership to life, building dreams into reality by way of construction. An enormous amount of gratitude from Chad’s family goes to Hope Hospice, Nurse Shelly and Chaplain Mike for their compassion and consideration during a painful time. Chad was preceded in death by his mother. Survived by his father; loving wife, Sara Matejek; children, Cody, Westley, Ross, Haylee, Kelcee and Lacee; grandchildren, Levi, Walker and Easton. He is also survived by a large extended family. Visitation and a service will be Nov. 19. The visitation will be held from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a service to begin at 3 p.m. Both will be at 1254 N. Business IH-35, New Braunfels 78130.
