Funeral services for Frank Alvin Simcik, 84, of Temple will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home in Temple with Pastor Tom Popelka officiating. Private burial to follow.

He passed away on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at a local care facility.

He was born July 14, 1934 in Abbott to Frank R. and Minnie (Marek) Simcik. He graduated from Temple High School in 1952. Frank then graduated from Temple Junior College, University of Texas in 1956 and Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 1960. He worked at Scott & White Hospital as a chaplain, a courier and in patient relations. Frank served his Lord and his community as a pastor for over sixty years at several local Unity of Brethren Churches, Evangelical Brethren Churches of Temple and Buckholts, and Trinity Evangelical Free Church in Austin. He also taught Bible class at Temple High School for 10 years. He was truly a blessing to everyone he met.

Frank married Linda Sebesta on June 8, 1958 in Caldwell. Together they shared over sixty years of marriage. Frank enjoyed reading and doing yardwork but most of all he loved to spend time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He was a devoted husband, a supportive father and a beloved grandfather and will be dearly missed by all who loved him.

He is survived by his loving wife, Linda Simcik; two sons, Bruce Simcik of Austin and Brad Simcik and wife Amy of Houston; a brother, Alvin Simcik; and 5 beloved grandchildren, Caitlin Simcik, Krista Simcik; Brenna Simcik, Will Simcik and Carissa Simcik.

The family would like to give a special word of thanks to the medical teams and staff from Baylor Scott & White Hospital and Hospice and the Weston Inn. The love and care you gave to Frank and our family is treasured and appreciated.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to Buckholts Evangelical Brethren Church, PO BOX 176, Buckholts, Texas 76518.

The family will receive visitors from 6-8 pm on Friday, September 14, 2018 at the funeral home.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of Mr. Simsik. He was my Bible teacher at THS in 1976, I believe. It was my favorite class. I know your family will miss him dearly.
