Edward T. Jancaric, 88, of Manor, Texas, formerly of Manteno, Illinois, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 14, 2018, in Elgin, Texas. Edward was born the son of John and Mary (Zvonkovich) Jancaric, in Chicago, Illinois on June 6, 1930. On September 30, 1950, he married the love of his life, Bette Burkhart.

Edward was preceded in death by his wife, Bette Jancaric; both his parents, and twelve siblings.

Edward worked as a crane machinist for Wisconsin Steel Works in Chicago, Illinois for over 33 years until his retirement. He was a family man above all else and was devoted to his wife of 47 years, his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and pets.

His hobbies included reading and working puzzles. He really enjoyed Texas Country Living - He would often take restful walks through the oaks, where he loved to watch the native birds like the roadrunners, hawks, and cardinals.
