Obituary for Dr. Joseph W. Brakovec

Dr. Joseph W. Brakovec


Dr. Brakovec, formerly of Tracy, CA, passed away peacefully at his home in Knoxville, TN, surrounded by his family. He was born in Whitehall, Montana, attended Carroll College in Helena, Montana, St Louis University Medical School in St. Louis, Missouri and completed surgical training at San Joaquin County Hospital in French Camp, CA.

Dr. Brakovec was a general surgeon in Tracy/Manteca for 31 years prior to his retirement. He was an active member and served many leadership roles at Tracy Community Hospital, Doctors Hospital of Manteca and the San Joaquin Medical Society. He had numerous hobbies throughout his life including flying, boating, travel, water skiing, running, snow skiing and photography. His greatest happiness was his winter home in Maui and being with his family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 60 years, Janet, of Knoxville, his children, Jana of Modesto, CA, Judy (Alan) of Hickory, NC, Jill (Alan) of Eden Prairie, MN and Joseph (Diane) of Knoxville, TN. He will be missed dearly by his grandchildren who all looked up to him: Anna, Eric, Jordan, Julian, Grace, Joey & Lauren. He was preceded in death by his sister Eugena Hill.

A remembrance will be held in Maui at a later date.
