Stephen Paul “Stosh” Ondrejka, Jr.
We celebrate the life of Stephen Paul Ondrejka, who passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by family and friends on Aug. 22, after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
He was born July 17, 1944 in Cleveland, Ohio, to the late Stephen P. Ondrejka Sr. and Eleanor Ondrejka. He is survived by his loving wife Judy, his children Steve (Andrea) of North Fort Myers, Tracy (Jason) Phenes of The Woodlands, Texas, along with five grandchildren; Haley, Cole, Skyler, Addison and Reagan; and his two sisters Sharon (Jerry) Phillips of North Fort Myers, and Jeannie (Clay) Murphy of Wild Rose, Wisc.
Stosh moved his family from Cleveland to Cape Coral, Fla., in the early 1970s where he established S.P.O. Construction, Inc. in 1976. He and his son worked alongside each other for many years until his retirement a few years ago. He loved gambling, spending time on his boat fishing and hunting in Alabama. He will be greatly missed by many loving relatives and close friends.
A Celebration of Life open house was held in his honor on Sunday, Sept. 1, at the Edison Restaurant, 3583 McGregor Blvd.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hope Hospice in memory of Stosh. Please visit www.fullermetz.com to leave the family a condolence.
