In Memory

Pete Sechelski

Peter Paul Sechelski joined our Heavenly Father on May 13, 2021.  He was born, August 26, 1951.  Peter Paul was 69 years old.  He was an amazing example of trust and faith in God and all that He could accomplish through Peter Paul.  He had good times and he had bad times but he always trusted Our Lord to see him through and he Praised the Lord for his gifts and talents.


Peter Paul was a long time residence of Denton, Texas.  He was devoted to his church and church family and followed them as they grew; he served the Lord in multiple ways.  With a caregiver's heart, he worked at Denton State School for those with disabilities. Years ago he helped organize and named the Open Harvest Food Pantry, still active today. Peter Paul devoted his Saturdays to packing lunches and going to Dallas, Texas to feed the homeless.  As his physical illness progressed he moved to a nursing home where he started  "The Corner Chapel" and provided comfort and support and continued to spread God's Words through weekly Bible studies until the day he died. His heart was full of Love, which he enjoyed sharing.


Children called Peter Paul, "Papa Moses" as he used a walking stick with the Ten Commandments engraved on it. He purposely grew out his hair and beard to play

Santa Claus at Christmas to entertain children and adults.


Peter Paul was preceded in death by his parents, Virgie and Peter Sechelski, his brother, Richard Dale Sechelski, his divorced, but, still, friend, Phyllis Sechelski Baker, grandparents and too many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.  He is survived by his sister, Teressa (Sechelski) Passons of Plano, Texas, nieces/spouses: Cristina and Corey Tucker, daughters, Katherine Peterson and Emily Peterson of Plano, Texas, and  Tanisha and Chad Evans, daughter, Audryanna Evans of Pennsylvania and son, Brenton Perry, of Florida, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.


A Memorial Service is pending at his home church in Lewisville, Texas. A combined burial service for Peter Paul and Virgie Sechelski will be held in early Fall at St. Mary, in Plantersville, Texas.
