As a young man, Mr. Lapacek traveled west from Nebraska to Market Lake where he actively participated in the settlement of the community.

He was born Nov. 13, 1879 at Heun, Neb., near Schuyler, the son of Karl and Agnes Nemek Lapacek.
He married Daisy Rasmussen in Idaho Falls April 20, 1908. Because of a heart ailment, in 1917 he trained to be a mechanic in the Michigan State Auto School of Detroit.
Mr. Lapacek was preceded in death by his wife on Sept. 7, 1932; a daughter, Beulah Adelaide, and two sons, Adrian Gilbert and William Albert. He is survived by one son, Charles Ernest Lapacek of San Diego, Calif.; a daughter, Dorothy Graeber of Roberts; three grandchildren: Charles Graeber and Nancy Graeber, both of Roberts, and Mrs. Douglas (Farall) Wheeler of Portland, Ore.
