WALTER HERBERT “BERT” NEMECEK passed away February 20, 2019 in Kentucky. Born May 3, 1948 in Cleveland to the late Edward and Edith Nemecek. Bert grew up in Cleveland Heights, was a proud alumnus of St. Ann’s, St. Ignatius HS ’66 and attended John Carroll University. He was awarded the Athlete of the Year for basketball at IHS, the only time a football player did not receive this award. Bert had a long career in sales working in the hospitality and manufacturing industry, most recently founding Lexseal in 2005. He loved making connections with his beloved customers at UPS Tates Creek, working part time since 2009. He was an avid horse racing fan and former member of Keeneland.
Bert’s greatest joy was family and spending time with and boasting about his grandchildren’s accomplishments, following them in activities such as golf, lacrosse, football and gymnastics. Bert is survived by his wife of 49 years, Mary Lou; daughter, Kerry; sons, Michael (Angie) and Patrick (Jenny); grandchildren, Matthew (fiancée Morgan), Michael, Dylan, Grace, Maeve and Finley; siblings, Sharon, Mary Claire, Greg (Patty) and Bobby (Edelyn); and numerous nieces and nephews.
