Wesley L. Smid

Wesley L. Smid, age 93, passed away on January 28, 2020, in Ennis, Texas. He was born in Ennis on September 21, 1926, to Emil and Frances (Pechal) Smid.

Wesley married his wife of 72 years, Julia Prachyl, in 1948. He was a member of the St. John Catholic Church and the KJT. After serving in the Navy during World War II, he worked as a typesetter and plate maker for Ennis Business Forms for 42 years.

Wesley’s talent with wood was amazing and he loved making something unique and beautiful out of it. He also enjoyed refinishing antiques and working on his immaculate yard. His fondest memories were fishing and spending time with his two grandsons.

He is survived by his wife, Julia; daughters, Susan and Denise (Donald Krajca); son, Deonys; grandsons, Jeremy Krajca (Shawnda), Justin Krajca (Rachel); and three great grandchildren, Audrey Krajca, and Julian and Jaxon Krajca.

Wesley is preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Frances Jurica and Mary Elzner; and brother, Theo Smid.

There will be a private service at a later date.
