Raymond Edward Kozak passed away on Tuesday, August 9, 2016, surrounded by his wife and children. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, and best friend, but most importantly he was loved. There are no words that can define the man that he was.

He grew up in Bremond, Texas until he moved to the coast where he worked for Dow until he retired after years of loyal service. He was an active member at the Elks for 30 years and also a long standing member at the Eagles Lodge in Freeport TX, where he participated in multiple lodge-supported charities. He also enjoyed playing cards at the VFW in Clute, Texas, where he developed many friendships that have lasted a lifetime. He was also an avid Houston Texans and Houston Astros fan.

He is survived by the love of his life, his soulmate, Amalia Kozak; mother, Edna Marie Boyd Kozak; brothers: Frank Kozak (Sharon) and Billy Kozak; children: Shannon, Doug (Jewel) and Lacie Kozak; step-children: Julie (Manuel), Stephanie (Pedro), Elena (Paul), Anna (Archie), Cynthia (Rick), Angela (David), Val (Julie), Phillip Sr., Joseph (Amy), and Augie (Cynthia); numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and many other relatives and many, many friends.

He also leaves behind his four-legged partner and big boy, “Gus,” whom he loved dearly.

Raymond’s family will receive visitors beginning at 5:00 pm, Tuesday, August 16, at Malloy & Son Funeral Home.

Funeral service will be 10:00 am, Wednesday, August 17, at Malloy & Son Funeral Home with burial following at Calvary Cemetery.

Pallbearers will Pedro Gutierrez, Paul Alvarado, Val Molis, Doug Kozak, Dalton Kozak, Christopher Kozak, Bradley Kozak, and Austin Murff. Honorary pallbearers are Frank Kozak, Billy Kozak, Manuel Kastis, and Bill Chaney.

Raymond’s family wishes to extend special thanks to Dr. Sattva Neelapu, MD (Lymphoma), Dr. Nancy Hughes (PCP); Michelle (Dr. Hughes); and Bill and Mary Chaney for your care and support.

To my Honey Molly, I love you with all my heart, ‘til death do us part. Thank you for never giving up and being the best Wife and my Soulmate . Thank you for your support and love you gave me during my illness. Most of all for just being my Wife. I Love you Honey, ‘til we meet again. Love, Ray

I wrote your name in the sand,

but the waves washed it away.

I wrote your name in the sky,

but the wind blew it away.

So I wrote your name in my heart,

and that’s where it will stay, always”
