Jerek Matthew Navratil passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 26, 2023. He is survived by his partner of nearly 15 years, Justin Traurig, and his cocker spaniel Echo. He is also survived by extended family members Robert and Susan Traurig, Justin and Ashley McLaughlin, Ryan and Ashley Traurig, his nieces and nephew, and the entire Traurig and Stierheim extended family, all of whom lovingly embraced him from their first introduction. He was the son of the late John and Elizabeth Wyno of Clymer, Pa.
Jerek was an avid gardener, an exceptional athlete and tennis player, a realtor with a keen eye for interior design, a gracious party host with exquisite Italian recipes, and a truly wonderful story teller with a creative soul that could find and most often create beauty everywhere.
He frequently reminisced about his time lived in Los Angeles, Ca and Houston, Tx, his beloved mother and Aunt Kate, his time spent working at Papa J's, his clients for whom he truly cared, his beloved pets, the countless tennis clinics and work out sessions he attended, and ALL those he befriended along the way.
Taken too soon, he will be missed my many.
Relatives and friends received Thursday, June 29, 2023, from 4-7 PM at McDERMOTT FUNERAL HOME, 334 Forest Grove Road, Coraopolis (Kennedy Township), PA 15108
