      Rudolph Luksa who passed away at the age of 75.

      Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, December 13, from the Cooks Point Brethren Church with burial in the church cemetery. Officiating were Rev. Norman Haisler, pastor, and Rev. H.E. Beseda of Austin.

      "My God and I" and "In the Garden" were sung by Mrs. J.D. Drgac and Virginia Kubin. "What a Friend We Have In Jesus," a favorite hymn, was sung by the congregation, accompanied by Mrs. Patsy Albright and John Crnkovic.

      Mr. Luksa was born October 22, 1904 in Snook, Texas, son of John and Emily (Hejl) Luksa. He was confirmed, married and lived most of his adult life in the Cooks Point community.

      Before his illness, he was an active member of the Cooks Point Brethren Church, serving as janitor, youth sponsor and usher. Lately his health prevented him from active participation but he was faithful in his attendance.

      Having no children of his own, "Mr. Rudy", as he was called, was looked upon like a father by the children he became acquainted with. He loved having them in his home and entertaining them. He enjoyed "entertaining" adults as well. Giving to others brought joy to him.

      Luksa is survived by his wife Elizabeth (Ella Drgac) Luksa, two sisters, Fannie Drgac of Cook's Point and Emily Pannen of Victoria. He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters - Albina Hovorak, Olga Jez, Lottie Odstrcil, and Vlasta and Ella Luksa. Three brothers also preceded him, Willie, Johnnie and Louis (killed in World War II).

      Serving as pallbearers were Maitland Beseda of Austin, Ronnie Albright, James Chaloupka, Louis Loehr, Charlie Orsak and John J. Toupal.

      Honorary pallbearers were four Godsons, J.D. Drgac of Odessa, Marvin Kubena of Houston, Leon Kubena of College Station, Kenneth Hronek of Cooks Point and Robert Odstrcil of Bryan, Fred Jurecka of Austin, Billy Albright of College Station, Lamar Drgac of Cameron, Ernest Homeyer of Caldwell, Ben Trcalek and John Crnkovic of Cooks Point.
