Messages of Condolence

  1. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Jim assisted our family in many ways. We were fortunate to have known him.
    God bless.

  2. Dear Haberek family
    I’m sadden to hear of Mr.Haberek passing.
    I remember him throughout my childhood as being a hardworker,always helping someone in need.
    May you find peace in all your memories

  3. I have fond memories going over to the house; almost like I was part of the family. Mr. Haberek was kind, good natured, and loving. I am sure that Jim and I gave him a run for his money now and them. Doing paper routes (Cleveland Press) and going over there now and then for hot chocolate in the winter. Growing up, he was supportive of me and the Higginbotham family. Fond memories.

    I am sorry I cannot be there for Jim, Mary, and the rest of Jim’s siblings. We are in California, and cannot make the trip. Rest assured, our love is sent on wings of an angel, so that God’s grace may shine upon them all. Rest in peace Mr. Haberek.

    John and Joanne Higginbotham

  6. Dear Haberek family,

    The peace and joy Mr Haberek is feeling is indescribable, but at the same time his passing has left you with a tremendous loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you today.

    I have so many wonderful memories of our families tobogganing together and eating Little Caesar’s pizza after political canvassing thanks to your father. His contagious smile and kind heart will always be the first things I remember and I am glad you are surrounded by wonderful friends and family to reflect on all of the happy memories.

    Sorry I could not be there in-person.

    With love and respect,

    Michael Elchlinger
