      Funeral services were held in the Cooks Point Brethren Church at 2:30 p.m. Monday, April 29, with the Rev. John Gantt, pastor, officiating. Mrs. Billy Albright, organist, accompanied Miss Barbara Chaloupka as she sang "Beautiful Garden of Prayer" and "Sweet Hour of Prayer".

In addition to his hobbies of gardening, growing flowers and raising chickens, he expressed his love for his Lord through the work and activities of his church, serving as treasurer of the Brotherhood, and was a member of the board of elders of the Cooks Point Brethren Church at the time of his death.

      On October, 25, 1927, he was united in marriage with Miss Tillie Telg in the Caldwell Brethren Church with the late Rev. F.H. Horak officiating.

Drgac of Cooks Point, two daughters, Mrs. Josephine Jurecka and Mrs. Virginia Kubin, both of Austin; three grandchildren; five brothers, Walter Drgac of San Angelo, William Drgac, Ed Drgac, Frank Drgac, and Johnnie Drgac, all of Cooks Point; six sisters, Mrs. Otto Meyer of Cameron, Mrs. John Kubena, Mrs. Frank Kubena, Mrs. Wilton Chaloupka, Mrs. Rudolph Luksa, and Mrs. Emile Urbanovsky, all of Cooks Point.
