Dear Kuma Milica , Mike, Mary and Family Hlacar.
Our prayers go out to you with our deepest condolences.
Zvonko was a wonderful man and my foundest memories are from the soccer and picnic days and swimming at your new big pool and picking apples at the farm or chasing the chickens around! Zvonko always was smiling and making jokes or trying to make us all laugh and smile. We always enjoyed the trips to your place back when we were younger. You are all so blessed to have experienced such a wonderful husband, father and grandfather for so many years with a true heart and joy. He will be missed by many! Sending our love to you x0x0, Sonchi (Sonja), Walter, Nicole, Johnny, Christina and Maya

Our sincere condolences to Milka, Mary, & Mike, plus the entire family. I always loved going to visit you at the farm growing up, it was always fun being with you guys. I remember Zvonko letting me ride the lawn tractor and cutting the grass, that was a great memory as a child. He will be missed!
