MILHULKA, DANIEL VERNON [April 15, 1955 - December 27, 1960]
CHRISTMAS HAS SAD END; DEATH TAKES LITTLE BOY
Christmas at the home of his grandparents in Schuyler ended sadly for the family of a five-year-old Lincoln boy. He became ill Christmas Day and died two days later Dec. 27 in Lincoln at St. Elizabeth's Hospital where he was transferred from Memorial Hospital.
He was Daniel Vernon, son of Vernon and Evelyn Reznicek Milhulka of 2311 So. 38th St., Lincoln. The family arrived Saturday to spend Christmas with Mr. Mihulka's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Mihulka. They enjoyed the Christmas Eve activities, attended church Christmas morning. It was while Daniel was with his parents at the Horvath Grocery that he became ill. A possible head injury the lad had a fall several days earlier is presumed to have been responsible for his death.
Daniel was born in Fremont April 15, 1955, and have lived in Lincoln a year. He attended kindergarten at Holy Name School.
Surviving with the parents and grandparents are two brothers, David and Douglas; two sisters, Debbie and Dawne; the maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Reznicek of North Bend, and a great grandfather, Joe Semerad of Howells.
