Joseph F. Nemecek, 82, of Kansas City, MO passed away at his home in the early morning hours on Wednesday, July 8, 2020.

Joe was born in Kansas City on November 17, 1937 and remained in his hometown for the resto of his life. His strong faith was anchored in his Catholic education beginning at Blessed Sacrament Grade School, St. John's Seminary (1950-1954) and Rockhurst College (1954-1958) where he earned his Bachelor of Science in physics. He received a Master's of Science in Applied Mathematics from UMKC in 1962, and a MBA from Rockhurst College in 1981. A lifelong learner, Joe never stopped reading, researching and attending classes and webinars.

Once He completed his duty with the 110th Engineering BN in the 35th infantry of the Missouri National Guard from 1957-1962, he went on to teach mathematics and electrical analysis in the evening division of Rockhurst College from 1962-1966.

He married the love of his life, Mary Jo, in 1960. That year also marked the beginning of his 38-year career at TWA as an Instrument Engineer. He left a lasting legacy through his designs and patents during the adolescent years of commercial aviation. In 1976 he was promoted to Vice-President where he oversaw the engine repair shop, maintenance, security and finance. He finished his career as Chief Information Officer.

Joe was a member of MENSA and an extra-class amateur radio and military operator. His call sign kilowatt-zero-Japan-Norway often echoed through the home in the middle of the night as he worked remote stations and countries.
