Frank Anton Zalabsky was born July 11, 1948 in Owen (Clark Co., Wis.), where he attended elementary and high school. After graduation he enlisted in the Navy, and after his discharge, was employed for awhile at Foremost, and then went into construction work. The past summer he had been employed on a project in Minnesota, and during the winter layoff had been employed on a farm until construction was to resume this spring.

Frank, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Zalabsky, won the admiration and respect of many for his resourcefulness and ambition. He was a worker, and as a youth spent all of his summers on area farms.

His tragic death is mourned by his parents, two sisters, Mrs. Thomas (Joan) Keith, Siren, and Mrs. Neil (Agnes) Anderson, Marinette.
