Friends and relatives here were saddened Wednesday by the news that Adolf J. Beck, 61, of San Antonio, a former Weimar business man, died of a stroke at 8:30 that morning.
He was in the post office of his residence section of Sans Antonio whom he collapsed, dying instantly. He had had a heart attack a month earlier, family members said.
Funeral services will be held at 9 o’clock tomorrow (Friday) morning at Roy Akers Funeral Home and St. Anne’s Church, with burial in San Fernando No. 2 Cemetery, San Antonio.
Mr. Beck was born and reared here, youngest son of the late Anton and Rosina Beck. For a number of years he was in the confectionery and café business here. Twenty-three years ago he moved to San Antonio, where he was owner and president of the Texas Scenic Company at the time of his death.
His wife is the former Miss Kasper, whom he married here in about 1918. She survives with one son, Leon Beck of San Antonio; one daughter, Mrs. Glenn Martin of San Antonio; three brothers, Emil of Woodsboro and Anton and Bus Sr. of Weimar; three sisters, Mrs. Mary Kainer of Schulenburg, Mrs. Frank Walzel and Miss Christine Beck, both of Weimar; and three grandchildren, Becky, Kathy and Glenn Martin Jr. of San Antonio.
