        BROUSSARD - A native of Crosby, TX, Frank Slovacek followed his heart to the state of Louisiana and made it home.

        His military service took him to Verdun, France where he married his Louisiana Lass.

        He and Jewel spent just shy of 60 years married, creating a family of variable characters. The family has bloomed to include four children, Andy, Joey, Debi, and Chris, and their spouses; seven grandchildren, some with spouses; seven great grandchildren and two on the way.

        Frank is survived by a single sister, Ruth Slovacek Cody who resides in Crosby, TX; two sisters-in-law, Shirley Slovacek and Jimmie Dee Slovacek who also live in and around the Crosby areas.

        His community service proudly included Rotary International and the Evangeline Chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America.

        Frank's career included auto dealer management, beauty supply sales, window manufacturing management, and ended with a 33 year career at Southern Structures in sales, as the District Sales Manager, General Manager, Vice President and President before retiring in 1998.

        He and Jewel sold everything, bought an RV and traveled the country selling advertising for golf courses. He and Jewel returned to Acadiana, and settled in Broussard, becoming an active member in the community.

        His undeniable sense of community, love of country and love of family will be remembered by many.

        "Frank's bright spirit cannot be diminished by mere death"
