Obituary for Florian Golnik

Florian Golnik, age 71, of Golconda, IL passed away August 16, 2019 at Baptist Health in Paducah, KY.

He was born on March 12, 1948 to Julius S. Golnik, Jr. and Florence Wozniak Golnik in Chicago, IL. He graduated from Weber High School in 1966 and Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, IL with a BS in Accounting in 1970.

Following graduation Florian worked in accounting at Continental National Bank and Borg Warner Corporation prior to becoming Controller for United Conveyor Corporation, the largest privately held corporation in Chicago at that time. In 1986 he used his experience to work in computer financial sales and moved with his family to North Carolina. In 1990 he started his own business as a financial systems consultant with clients that included major NBC stations in New York, Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles, along with Stars and Stripes and Military Car Sales in Germany and many others.

Florian was most proud of his children and grandchildren and his work in his communities. He was a Fourth Degree in the Knights of Columbus, worked for years with the Lombard, IL Jaycees, and woodworking for Holy Infant Catholic Church in Durham, NC. Most recently he served on the Board of the Pope County Senior Citizens. He and Jenna moved to Pope County in 2015 and his new friends at the Golden Circle and the beauty of the area made this home.

Florian Golnik is survived by his wife, Jenna Bender Golnik, married on September 4, 1971, in St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, Metropolis, IL. They have three children, Katrina Julia (Jay) Turner, Holly Springs, NC; Nathaniel Robert (Lindsey), Raleigh, NC and Sarah Beth (Nicholas) Roberts, Mebane, NC and four grandchildren, Jordan Alexander Bevis, Aiden Chalmers Turner, Jackson Robert Turner and Hailey Roberts. His parents and one brother, Julius S. Golnik III, preceded him in death.

Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm on Monday August 19, 2019 at Antioch Cemetery in Rosebud, IL.

Donations may be made to the Pope County Senior Citizens, 217 Adams Street, Golconda, IL 62938 or your favorite charity.
