Old Time Citizen Passes Away Wednesday
On Wednesday night of last week, at the family home in the northern part of town, Mr. Frank Huvar, an aged and good citizen of this community, passed unto his eternal reward, after a long illness. Mr. Huvar’s condition had been precarious for many days, and at his advanced age, but little hope was held out for him after the seriousness of his illness was realized. The remains were prepared for burial and on Saturday morning, after services were held at St. Michael’s Church the body was tenderly conveyed to St. Michael’s Cemetery and laid to rest in the presence of a large assemblage of mourning relatives and friends. Rev. Jos. Szymanski officiating in a touching burial service.
Mr. Huvar was born in Czecho-Slovakia, Dec. 1845, came to Texas Nov. 17, 1882, with his family, consisting at that time of his wife and five children. The family landed at Galveston and then proceeded to this section, where Mr. Huvar spent the remainder of his life, living at all times within a radius of three miles of Weimar. His first wife died Aug. 23, 1891. He afterward remarried. Throughout his life Mr. Huvar followed the occupation of farmer, and was quite successful. He was at all times, up to his last illness, active in church and school work. it will be remembered that years ago a school was established in the northern city limits and named for Mr. Huvar. During his lifetime Mr. Huvar was a quiet, good citizen, a man who believed in the precepts of the golden rule, and by all regarded as a model, good citizen and neighbor. Mr. Huvar raised a large family of children, the most of them now grown and settled in life.
He is survived by his widow and eleven children, as follows: Frank Huvar, Jr., of Hillje, Wharton county; Sister Mary Philbert of Providence Convent, now teaching school at Frydek, near Sealy, in Waller county; J. R. Huvar of Yoakum, W. H. Huvar of Garwood, Fred Huvar of Victoria, W. J. Huvar of Flatonia, Mrs. Mary Schindler of Victoria, Mrs. Annie Macek of Needville, Cyril Huvar of El Campo, and Misses Genevieve and Theresa Huvar of this city, besides 37 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. All of Mr. Huvar’s children were present at the funeral. A touching feature of the funeral was that six of Mr. Huvar’s sons officiated as pall bearers.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his bereaved ones.
