Bernard J Jaksetic, age 90, passed peacefully the morning of July 4th. For all who knew Bernie, his dedication to God, his family, and his country are a beacon of the gentle soul he was.Bernie grew up in Kansas City, Kansas and attended St. John the Baptist Catholic School. He proudly served his country in the United States Army during the Korean War from 1951-1953. He met his wife Marilyn Mohart of 63 years upon his discharge from the Army. Together they were blessed with three children, Mark, Debra, and Larry. Bernie worked at Commercial National Bank where he proudly retired after 45 years of service.Bernie was a quiet and gracious soul, always putting others before his own needs and setting an example of a true gentlemen in every way. He was not a proud man, but if you asked him about bowling or golf you might get a grin and a short story about the time he bowled a perfect 300 game, or the time he sunk a hole-in-one on the golf course. As much as he loved bowling and golf, his favorite place to be was at a polka dance with Marilyn surrounded by music and dancing with his bride. He found joy in a simple life; cherishing a morning cup of coffee, a walk around the neighborhood, or a conversation with a friend. He never met someone he didnt love deeply. Bernie is survived by his wife, Marilyn; son, Mark Jaksetic (Kansas City, Kansas); eight grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. Bernie was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, William and Stephen; son, Larry Jaksetic; and daughter, Debra McCarty.
