Hajec, Stanley (1921? - 11 Dec. 1949)
Funeral services for Stanley Hajec, 28, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Hajec, town of Guenther, who died in a trailer house fire near Iron River Sunday, will be held Thursday morning at 9:30 o’clock in St. Francis Xavier Catholic church in Knowlton, with the Rev. John Nowak officiating. Burial will be in the Knowlton cemetery.
The young man, a veteran of three and a half years of service in the navy during World War II, has been employed the past several months on a road construction project on highway 27, about 23 miles south of Iron River. He was left as a watchman at the construction camp trailers by Otto Weisner of Superior, owner of the construction firm, over the week-end. The fire apparently occurred Sunday night.
Coroner Alvin Bratley of Iron River, said the fire probably was started by a cigarette. Hajec apparently died immediately.
The body will be at the Beste funeral home in Mosinee until the time of the services.
Surviving, in addition to the parents, are three brothers, Ben Hajec, town of Knowlton, and Joseph and Edward Hajec, at home, and four sisters, Mrs. Joseph Mikes, Mosinee, Miss Eugenia Hajec, Janesville, and Connie and Delores Hajec, at home.
