             Relatives and friends were shocked at news from Hempstead on Tuesday, December 10, 1946 telling of the
             sudden death of Charles Miculka Sr.  Mr Miculka had eaten a hearty dinner and was reading the newspaper 
             while waiting  to accompany his son-in-law to Houston.  His daughter found him with the newspaper in his
             hand, apparently having fallen to sleep where death overtook him.  He was seemingly in good health and
             had suffered no illness.
       
             Mr. Miculka, a gentle, kind, and helpful man, suffered two tragic sorrows when his wife, Mary Baca Miculka,
             passed away on January 3, 1945 and four months later his son, Clarence Miculka, lost his life in heroic action
             in Europe which earned for him a high governmental decoration.  The burden of his sorrow evidently tolled
             heavily on Mr. Miculka who left Eagle Lake at that time to make his home with the family of his daughter,
             Mr. and Mrs. Walter Bennatt in Hempstead.
       
             Funeral services were held at 10 o’clock in Hempstead with Rev. Joe Abney Davis of Waller officiating
             and Rev. Roy Blackmon of Hempstead assisting.  Interment was in Forest Park Cemetery in Houston
             beside his wife.
       
             Pallbearers were Jeff Cooke, Everett Russell, Foster Flukinger, Lester Bennatt, F.E. Bennatt and Robert
             Clark McDade..
       
             Mr. Miculka was born August 18, 1873 at Schulenburg, and resided during his entire lifetime in South
             Texas.  In 1908, the Miculka family came to the Eagle Lake neighborhood and resided here since that time.
             He was a cotton and potato farmer.
       
             He leaves eight children; Mrs. Frank Dittrich of Eagle Lake, Mrs. E.D. Meyer of Houston, Mrs. E.P.
             Wilkins and Mrs. Walter Bennatt of Hempstead, August of Matthews, Charles of Eagle Lake, Henry of
             Needville and Alphonse of Fort Worth.  Twenty three grandchildren and two great grandchildren, four
             Sisters and two brothers also survive.
       
             Mr. Miculka was always a welcomed caller at the Headlight office on his visits back in Eagle Lake.  We
             will miss those visits and take this means of joining with friends in expressing deepest sympathy to
             members of his family.
