obit: John Zack
Funeral services for John Zack, who was fatally injured Wednesday night when struck by an automobile, will be held at 8 o’clock this afternoon in the funeral home of Malloy & Son. Rev. Edmund H. Gibson will officiate and burial will be in the new City Cemetery. Mr. Zack was struck between 24th and 25th on the Boulevard about 7:30 o’clock and died at 9 o’clock.
A negligent homicide charge against Herman Wachlert of 3616 Q ½ , driver of the car, was dismissed yesterday morning by Justice of the Peace B. M. Kupsa after he had taken statements from Herbert H. Pallock and L. R. Coffman, witnesses of the accident. It was declared unavoidable, as witnesses said Mr. Zack stepped in front of the car while crossing in the middle of the block before the driver could stop.
Mr. Zack, who had lived here for the last six months with his daughter, Mrs. O. B. Gibson, 1715 27th, was born Feb. 25, 1863, in Lipnik, Moravia, Czecho-Slovakia. He had lived in Dallas 40 years.
In addition to his daughter, Mr. Zack is survived by three sons in Dallas, Henry, Norbert and Johnnie Zack; a grandson in Galveston and a granddaughter in Dallas.
Pallbearers will be R. J. Henry, G. J. Hosty, Joe Ovesny, C. C. Gries, Gerald Beaulieu and Ike Goldstein.
