  3. So sorry to hear Frankie had passed. He was a special person always had a smile on his face. Before our parents and aunts and uncles passed I remember all the different Huvar get togethers we would see him at them when he would be in the area he would always visit. Later on about the only time we got together were at weddings and funerals on and at area church picnic polka dances. We are going to miss him.

    • We were so sorry to hear about Frank. We’ve missed his smiling face and teasing jokes on Sundays. My mom, Naida, was raised in Victoria and loved talking to Frank all about the good ole days and dancing and small town life. She has missed him and was so sad to hear of his passing and sends her love and prayers to Blake and all the family. We will offer Masses and our own rosaries and prayers for Frank’s soul and for all the family. God bless you all, Vanessa and John Abbey

  9. Sorry to hear about Frank’s passing. Several years ago, I as a member of the Dickinson VFW Honor Guard and he working for Crowder Funeral Home, Dickinson, we got to know each other briefly. We got to talking about a school friend of mine who was killed in Vietnam. I told Frank that my friend, Refugio Canales is buried at the cemetery, corner of US 59 bypass and Hwy 71 in El Campo, Texas. From that point on every time we ran into each other at a veteran’s service in this area, he would tell me that he had been in the El Campo area and that he had replaced the little flag on my friend’s grave. Frank told me that he carried with him a new flag to replace the older one at my friend’s grave every time he was in the area. I thought that was a touching act as Frank never new my friend. I lost track of Frank and was told that he had moved to Brenham. Frank was a good man and may he rest in peace. T. ‘Jack’ Sonora. 3 August 2020.
