In Loving Memory

Charles L. Orsak

September 25, 1938 – July 4, 2020

Charles Louis Orsak passed away peacefully in his home on July 4, 2020 in Friendswood, Texas at the age of 81. He was born in Iowa Colony on September 25, 1938 to Charles and Augustina Orsak. He was happily married to Ann Hubenak for 50 years, and after her passing in 2010, Charles was blessed with a second great love when he married Joan Kreuzer in 2012.

A loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather; he cherished time spent with his family and will be missed tremendously. Charles was the ultimate caregiver with a heart of gold; happiest on the dance floor and lived life to the fullest – down to the finest detail. He worked as a Machinist for Union Carbide for over thirty years and served as a Minister of Communion for St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. On Friday nights during Lent he could be found frying fish with his fellow Knights of Columbus members. The countless memories he made, and lessons shared will continue to live on through each new generation. Free from pain and suffering, he is now in wonderful company within our army of Guardian Angels.

Charles was preceded in death by his father, Charles Orsak, his mother, Augustina Orsak, his brother, Edward Orsak, his former wife, Ann Orsak, and his stepdaughter Kathleen Denise Zarrinabadi.

Charles is survived by his wife, Joan Orsak; sister-in-law Elvera Orsak; children, David Orsak and his wife Maribeth, Gary Orsak and his wife Kimberly, Jeff Orsak and his wife Nikki; step-daughter, Ann Venable and her husband Joseph; grandchildren, Ashleigh Grape and her husband Matthew, Kelsea Locke and her husband Robert, Brooke Kehlenbrink and her husband Justin, Wyatt Glazier, Madisen Glazier, Cara Green and her husband Greg, Amy Green, Jonathan Corn and his wife Miho, Emily Allison and her husband Randy; great-grandchildren, Reese, Rylie and Rhett Grape, Harvey Locke, Watson Glazier, Peterson Green, Benjamin and Cali Green, Shiroi and Takumi Corn, Emma and Ellie Allison.

    To the Family of Charles Orsak,
    Our Sympathy and Prayers are extended to all of the Charles Orsak Family.
    I, Judie , knew Charles since Grade School in Iowa Colony and maybe even before. My Mother and Father, The Macek's visited his family and were good friends. Surely we played together while they visited or played dominoes. Our Daughter Chris and his Nephew
    were Flower Girl and Ring Bearer in Charles and Annie's Wedding. I have known Joan since their marriage and enjoy her friendship.
    Truly I will say that Charles Orsak was One of The Finest Gentleman that I know! He loved his Faith and he lived it daily, truly a Catholic Christian he was.
    And yes, I will have to say, although I never danced with him, I watched him dance and could tell how smoothly he would glide his partner.
    The latest being Joan at the Alvin/Manvel KC Hall and I just had to tell them how I admired them, also told them "To Keep On Dancing", as long as they could and I know they did!
    May Our Dear Friend Charles Rest In Peace In His Heavenly Home , His Family Be Consoled and Carry on His Legacy.
    Our Love and Prayers, Judie & Leo Divin

  2. To the family of my friend Charles. My sympathy goes out to his family for he was a wonderful person who thought of others before himself. I worked at Carbide as apprentice in the machine shop with Charlie. He taught me the tools of the trade. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. He is with his family and friends in the kingdom of our Heavenly Father God almighty. Your friend Charlie (T) Taormina Jr

    Our deepest condolences to the family. I will remember his friendly personality and smile. It had been a while since I stopped by to see him, but he was always warm and welcoming. You truly felt his genuine warmth and hospitality. May you carry his memories in your heart.

    What a wonderful man. Charles and Ann were dear friends with my parents and Joan was one of my moms dearest friends. When my mother passed Charles and Joan were so kind and helpful and of course, loving towards all of us. I will never forget! Charles was such a wonderful servant of the Lord and an outstanding soldier for Christ. Charles will be missed by so many but never forgotten! Rest in peace dear sweet man in the arms of your Lord and Savior!

  5. A Cousin by marriage to Annie from my mothers side. Condolence to his family he was a very friendly and caring man.

    My most heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Orsak family. We moved across the street from Charles and Ann in 1997. Charles and Ann were the first neighbors to come over and welcome us to the neighborhood. They were always so sweet and caring towards us. After Ann passed I always felt closer to Charles and looked out for him as much as he would allow. When he married Joan I also felt that still lookout for them both and help out when they would let me. I will dearly miss him. I will still look to see him outside doing! He loved doing. And I will miss our curbside chats the most. I will miss him…
    Sam and Katherine
