      Ernest Frank Mica, 82, of Flatonia passed away Wednesday, January 8, 2004.
      Funeral services will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, January 31, 2004 at

      Interment will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery with Military honors. The family

      Ernest was born August 14, 1921 in Flatonia to Edward and Francis
      Zimmerhanzel Mica. He was one of eleven children. He attended school at
      String Prairie. He married Olline Hart on July 11, 1942 and they enjoyed 52
      years of marriage.

      Ernest was a World War II veteran and he served his country for 2 years and
      9 months in the Asiatic Pacific Campaign. After being honorably discharged
      from the military, he returned to Flatonia where he owned and operated a
      restaurant. Ernest went to work for Flatonia Motor Company in the early 50s
      and spent more than 25 years in the auto business. After he retired, he and
      Olline pursued their love of traveling and spent many wonderful years seeing
      the country with their travel group.

      Ernest was a very civic-minded individual. He dedicated much of his time to
      the community by volunteering as an EMS technician, helping at Oak Manor
      Nursing Home and remained an active member of the local Rotary Club for many
      years. He also served as the Mayor of Flatonia from April 1982 to August
      1985 and was voted Citizen of the Year by the Flatonia Chamber of Commerce
      in 1984. He was awarded the Community Builder Award by the Masonic Grand
      Lodge of Texas in 1995. Ernest also served as Deacon for Flatonia Baptist
      Church for many years.

      Ernest was preceded in death by his parents, wife Olline, Sisters Martha
      Mica Rebecek and Idella Mica Novak and brothers Henry, Willie, Edward, Jr.,
      and Robert.

      Survivors include sisters Helen Mica Brunner, Kate Mica Brunner, Josie Mica
      Krametbauer and brother, George Mica. "Unc," as he was affectionately known,
      also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews who were touched by his life.

      Pallbearers will be nephews: Si, Ronnie and Fred Henry Cook, Randy and Robby
      Wehmeyer and Carl Brent and Scotty Mica. Memorials may be made to the
      American Cancer Society, First Baptist Church of Flatonia or to the charity
      of the donors' choice.
