Obituary

Albert “Zeke” Vorachek, 86, of Gladwin, went to his heavenly home on Monday, September 2, 2019, at his home surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on October 30, 1932, the son of Thomas & Florence (LaFreniere) Vorachek, in Hafford, Saskatchewan. At the age of 3, his family moved and settled in Flint, Michigan. There he met and fell in love with his future wife and devoted life partner Betty Gagnon. They were married on February 23, 1952, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Flint. While raising a family Zeke was employed for A/C Spark Plug until his retirement in 1980 after 30 dedicated years of service.
