Frank J. Hadeka Sr.

Frank J. Hadeka Sr., age 91, passed away at his home on June 24, 2009. Frank was born on Oct. 9, 1917, in Proctor, Vt., the son of Adolph and Mary (Pikelivicz) Hadeka. Frank was a veteran of World War II.

Frank was retired from the U.S. Postal Service. He was a charter member and volunteer firefighter for the Hook & Ladder Fire Co. He was a member of the American Legion and the Knights of Columbus. Frank had served two terms as grand knight in that organization. He was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church and was an usher there.

Frank was an avid golfer. He was a member of the Skenesborough Country Club in Whitehall, where he golfed nearly daily with Ed Fish, Dr. Bud Lynch and Bob Jones. For more than 10 years, he and his wife, Eleanor, spent winters in Myrtle Beach, S.C., where they golfed away the winter months together.  A highpoint of his golf was achieving a hole-in-one at the Lake St. Catherine Country Club in Poultney, Vt.

When not on the golf course, Frank enjoyed working in his garden in which he grew wonderful vegetables. He loved his family and grandchildren very much.

 

Survivors are his wife Eleanor, two sons, Walter Hadeka of Welch, Minn., and Frank Hadeka Jr. and his wife, Susan, of Middle Granville; and a daughter Mary Wood and her husband, Bob, of South Glens Falls. In addition Frank is survived by his brother, Paul Hadeka and his wife, Jennie, of Granville; and a sister, Mary Blaszyczk of Lake Orien, Mich.; as well as nine grandchildren, four great-granddaughters, seven great-grandsons, and several nieces and nephews.

 

A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Monday, June 29, at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, with the Rev. Thomas Zelker presiding. Burial followed at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery in Middle Granville. Calling hours were held Sunday, June 28, at the Robert M King Funeral Home, 23 Church St. Granville.

 

Memorial contributions may be made in Frank’s memory to St. Mary’s Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, N.Y. 12832.
