Glenn Charles Cacek, passed away January 18, 2020, at Lancaster Rehabilitation Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. Born on July 7, 1952, in Beatrice, Nebraska, to Donald C. Cacek and Harriet M. Wilms Cacek. He will be remembered as a true foodie, devoted to the perfection of cooking and a true connoisseur of fine wine. He was associated with the Chaine des Rotisseurs in Lincoln, yet nothing he prepared exceeded the wonderful dishes he prepared for family and friends at intimate gatherings.
Glenn graduated from Superior High School in 1970, after which he attended the University of Nebraska as a member of the Acacia Fraternity. His experience in the food and wine industry included being the sommelier at the Lincoln University Club. During that time he was in charge of all banquet and a la carte dining where he was well-known for his crepes suzettes. He was also employed by the Rotisserie and the University of Nebraska Alumni Association, where he was Building Activities Manager. This position required him to personally oversee all special events and weddings, as well as overall management of the building.
Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, Donald C. and Harriet M. Cacek. He is survived by his sister Phyllis Jean Bodie, and nieces and nephew, Brook De Melo Gomes, Paige Marie Rosen, and Aaron B. Bodie.
Due to the great concern of Glenn’s sister for the safety and well-being of close friends and family due to COVID-19 Glenn's Celebration of Life is postponed. A new date will be determined in the future. Please stay posted. If you have any questions please reach out to Lincoln Family Funeral Care at 402-464-6400. Thank you.
