Frank Chavez

     Frank Adam Chavez, 71, of Nampa, died Friday, January 1, 1993, at the Nampa hospital.  Vigil services will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 4, at Persons-Flahiff Funeral Chapel, Nampa.  The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 5, at St. Paul's Catholic Church, Nampa.  The Rev. Father Roland Lojoie, S.M., will be the celebrant.  Burial will follow at Mount Calvary Cemetery, Nampa.
    Mr. Chavez was born Dec. 19, 1921, at Hoehne, CO, a son of Frank and Benita Tapia Chavez.  He grew up and attended grade school in Colorado.  He married Adelina Mary Marquez on June 24, 1940, at Grand Junction, CO., where they made their home until moving to Idaho in the early '40s where they started their family.
     Some of Dad's happiest moments were the times he spent hunting and fishing with his sons and friends in the outdoors that he loved so much.  His happiest moments were the times he spent surrounded by his wife and family.  Even though our mother, brothers and sisters feel we have lost one of the most important parts of our family, we know our father has joined the greatest family of all, the family of Eternal life in the Kingdom of God.  This brings comfort to our hearts, and hope to our souls, to know one day all of us will inherit the Kingdom of God, and be together as one family once again.
     He was a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church, Nampa.
