Obituary for Robert T. Ladika

Robert T. Ladika, age 61, of McHenry, passed away Sunday, January 21, 2018, at JourneyCare in Barrington surrounded by his loving family.

He was born September 21, 1956 in Blue Island, the son of Joseph and Lillian Pearl (Schultz) Ladika. Raised in Cazenovia, Wisconsin, Bob moved to Illinois at the age of 16. For the past 29 years, he was a resident of McHenry, and formerly lived in Lombard.

Bob was an extremely hard working man who always made it a priority to take care of his family and others. He was a man of few words unless talking about poker, politics or taxes. He loved spending time in his pool and having big parties with friends and family. He adored his granddaughters and cherished the time he spent with them. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Survivors include his loving wife, Pauline, of McHenry; his beloved son, Blake (Laura) Ladika of Wonder Lake; two granddaughters, Arianna and Brooke; and his brothers and sisters, Gail (Paul) Riding, Chuck (the late Cathy) Andres, Bernie (Ellen) Andres, Mary (Kennie) Wastlick, Dan (Lois) Andres, Joe (Marie) Ladika, Jim (Dawn) Ladika, and Don (Vicki) Ladika; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Mike Ladika.

The cremation rite was accorded privately. A Celebration of Life gathering is being planned for March.

Arrangements were entrusted to Justen Funeral Home & Crematory, McHenry. For information, please call the funeral home at 815-385-2400, or visit, where friends may leave an online condolence message for his family.
