Brock, Raymond Wilbur Jr. – Omaha World

Brock, Raymond Wilbur Jr. Aug 27, 1927 – Nov 2, 2018 Preceded in death by parents, Raymond W. Brock Sr., Madeline V. (Krenzer) Brock; brothers, Darrell and William; sister, Betty (Lamb); spouses, Frances A. (Saitta) and Margaret; and infant daughter. Survived by brother, Michael; sons: Raymond R. (Katie) Brock; Guy S. (Connie) Brock; 10 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild; stepdaughter, Judy (Richard) Marx; and numerous nieces and nephews. Raymond was a WWII U.S. Navy Veteran and belonged to the American Legion 0220 in Comstock, NE. Dad was accomplished as an electrician. He worked for the Metropolitan Utilities District for 10 years. He left MUD and began a long career as an electrical contractor throughout Nebraska. Dad grew up in North Omaha’s Florence area. He went to Florence Grade School and Tech High School. He joined the Navy and was Honorably discharged. He met his loving wife Frances Saitta and they were together until her death April 11, 1985. He married Margaret Muck and they were together until her death July 4, 2009. Dad had a passion for cooking. He collected recipes and would experiment, adding ingredients and changing them to his liking. At different periods of time he owned three different cafes. Two of them he built from scratch in existing buildings. One was already established when he purchased it and, as with recipes, he changed it to suit him. He built a take-out trailer with all the appliances to cook the chicken that he was famous for. With failing eyesight over the past years, he was continually hopeful that he would get better, to see well enough to start another take-out or cafe. As recently as this past spring, he copyrighted the name RB’s Chicken Supreme. Up till a week ago, he was still putting together menus. One room in his house is full of the kitchen accessories needed to run a cafe. I will miss my Dad; I know he is resting in peace with my Mother. God bless them and you.
