Henry Joseph “Hank” Condel, 67, of Gonzales, ended his fight with cancer on Sunday, December 8, 2019. He was surrounded by family as he took his last breath into his eternal life in Heaven. Henry was born May 3, 1952 in Shiner, Texas to Josephine Schleinschok and Henry James Condel and attended the Catholic Schools in Moulton and Shiner. He married Patricia “Patsi” Schrader in 1970 and raised together two daughters, Kelli and Kasey. He married Bobbie Jo Beene on April 7, 1995, whom cared for him so very well to the very end.

Work for Henry began at an early age for his family, but his first job was a cowboy for Houston Munson Ranch. He continued to work throughout his life, at places such as: Bucholtz Processing, Holly Farms, Iley Brothers and then James Lagging, where he learned to weld. He decided at that time, welding was his passion and opened Condel’s Welding in the late 70s. He welded in the oilfield and for the community up until 2000 when he was ready for a career change so him and his sister Patsy opened H&P BBQ Home Cooking. He loved to bar-b-que but he quickly found out his hobby of bar-b-quing was a lot of work.

As time went on, Henry could always be found outside his home piddling in his shop, mowing, building, gardening or playing with Preslee. Last and most importantly, he participated in the Watchdog Program at Gonzales Primary Academy. He was thought of highly by all the teachers and students, and he enjoyed that job the most. Although he had lots of jobs throughout his years, his most important job was to recite the Lord’s Prayer every morning to start his day. Henry spent an abundance of his time with his youngest granddaughter, Preslee. She referred to him as “King”, and she was indeed his princess. Together, Henry and Preslee had a side gig they named H&P Resale where many memories were made.

Henry was quite rowdy and adventurous in his younger years, and definitely knew how to have a good time. He was determined to say the least, and made sure things were done his way, even to the very end of his life. Although he did become ill, his humorous side never left. He made his mark on all of his family members, passing on his organizational and hardworking traits. He was protective and loved to spoil his whole family.
Henry was knowledgeable in all aspects of life. He was the help hotline for a lot of people, whether it be for car troubles, to borrow money, or just simply get advice on life. He loved making and fixing things, and hated flies and anything with a squeak. He always ate good and made sure never to miss a meal, especially desert. He was most famous for his stew, chicken noodle soup, and beans, along with having the biggest sweet tooth out of anyone in his family.

Henry is survived by his wife, Bobbie Jo Condel of Gonzales, daughters, Kelli Connell and husband Ron of Gonzales, Kasey Rhodes and husband Kevin of Smiley, step-daughter, Pam Pullin of Cost, step-son, James Pullin and wife Charlene of Mart, sisters, Irene Schaefer of Seguin, Diana Johnston and husband Dusty of Seguin, Pasty Fitzsimmons and husband Tony of Gonzales, Rosie Roecker and husband Albert of Seguin, sister-in-law, Bonnie Condel of Gonzales, brothers, Alvin Condel and wife Becky of Gonzales, Johnny Condel and wife Tessie of Smithville, five grand-daughters, Bailey Connell, Corie Connell, Kinley Rhodes, Kaelyn Rhodes, Preslee Castro, and numerous nieces and nephews. Henry was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Jimmy Condel, brother-in-law, Adolph Schaefer, and grandson, Weslee Pullin.

My heart aches for Bobbie and the family. Boy let me tell you Pete and I had some good times and made a lot of good memories with Henry and Bobbie. I am sure he had a host of angels just waiting to get him to the domino table and to fill him in on the does and don’ts of heaven. Happy trails until we meet again. With Love, Leann
