1 thought on “Kovarik, Albert F.”

  1. As a young Fr. Albert, and cousin of our mother, Dorothy Kovarik, he performed the marriage ceremony uniting Dorothy with Wilbert (Wibby) J. Lange, Jr. on October 11, 1955 at St. George Catholic Church. My heart is both aching at the loss of Albert, and warmed with happy memories as one of Dottie & Wib’s 7 children. I’m certain there was a very large contingent of Kovariks (including our parents and 1 brother) to greet him upon his heavenly arrival. Our sympathies to Mary and our extended Kovarik family. God bless you all at this difficult time.
