Paul William Hadeka, 87

Paul William Hadeka, age 87, died Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2009, in the Glens Falls Hospital.

 Paul was born in Proctor, Vt., on Sept 30, 1921, the son of Adolph and Mary (Pikelivicz) Hadeka.

 Paul retired after 35 years of employment as a corrections officer. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church. Paul was an avid bowler and bowled in leagues for many years. But his real passion was golf. Paul was a member of the Lake St. Catherine Country Club.  Paul was very proud in his accomplishment of achieving nine holes-in-one at various golf courses throughout the years.

 Paul is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jennie (Fragnoli) Hadeka; and a sister, Mary Blaszyck of Lake Orien, Mich.

Paul considered himself fortunate to be surrounded and loved by his extended family, which consisted of his sister-in-law, Micky DeVecchi, her daughters, Connie Torres and Bertina Costello, and their children, Mario and Aaron Torres and Kristyn Costello. In addition he is also survived by several nieces and nephews.

 Paul and Jennie would like to extend a special thank you to the Rev. Tom Zelker for his friendship, visits and prayers. Also thanks to their family and friends for all their care, help and support.

A funeral Mass was celebrated at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church on Sept. 18 with the Rev. Tom Zelker presiding. Following the Mass, as per Paul’s wishes he was cremated and interred at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery in Middle Granville at the convenience of the family.

 Bearers were Mario and Aaron Torres, Charlie Cavagnaro, Sam Frandino, Jay Fragnoli and Jerry Hadeka.

 Memorial contributions in Paul’s memory may be made to St. Mary’s Church, 23 Bulkley Ave., Granville, N.Y. 12832 or Granville Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 153, Granville, N.Y. 12832.
