His hobbies included hunting, playing dominoes, making homemade sausage with family and friends, listening to polka music (especially the Czech Melody Masters) and spending time with his family. Later in life, he enjoyed relaxing and watching the Astros and the Game Show Network.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his son Joel (Joey) Svatek and siblings, Rosalie Yawn, Frances Adamick, Frankie Svatek, and Ed Svatek. 

Survivors include his loving wife of 43 years, Joyce Bosch Svatek and children, Dennis Svatek, Jr. and wife Marcie, Dustin Svatek, Christy Gonzales and husband JJ, Melissa Svatek and fiancé Matt Richardson; grandchildren, Courtney Svatek, Stephen Svatek, Kylee Svatek, Caitlin Richardson and Madison Gonzales; siblings, Lille Wittig and husband Leonard, August Svatek and wife Joan, Jerry Svatek Sr. and Leonard Svatek.
