Emmet’s Fourth Fatality
Crash Kills Dolliver Man
Gruver – Ronald F. [Frank] Rezac, 20, rural Dolliver, became Emmet County’s fourth highway fatality early Saturday [September 4, 1976] morning when he was fatally injured in a one-car crash three miles north of Gruver on Emmet County blacktop N 40.
Mr. Rezac, who was alone at the time of the accident, was traveling north on the blacktop when his car went into the west ditch and rolled over on the blacktop as he apparently was attempting to return it to the road.
He was thrown from the car, which came to rest on its top on the blacktop. The accident was reported at 4 a.m. but believed to have occurred at approximately 2 a.m. The 1975 car driven by Mr. Rezac received $4,000 damage.
Services for Mr. Rezac were held today at the United Methodist Church in Dolliver with burial in the Lincoln Township Cemetery. Henry Funeral Home, Estherville, was in charge of services.
He was born July 23, 1956, in Estherville, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Rezac. He received his education in the Dolliver and Lincoln Central school systems, graduating from Lincoln Central High School in 1975.
Mr. Rezac lived with his parents and was employed with Rezac Excavating. He was a member of the Dolliver United Methodist Church.
He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Rezac, rural Dolliver; two brothers, Robert Rezac, New German, Minn., and Roger Rezac, rural Dolliver; three sisters, Mrs. Gary (Marcia) Schmidt, Mankato, Minn., Mrs. James (Pamela) Biehn, Lake Crystal, Minn., and Phyllis Rezac, Sioux Falls, S.D. Maternal grandmother, Mrs. Lydia Swan, rural Estherville; and one niece, Nicole Schmidt, Mankato, Minn.
Mr. Rezac was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents and maternal grandfather. (Estherville Daily News, Estherville, IA, September 7, 1976)
