Adrian Frank Sebek
September 20, 1928 - March 23, 2014
Adrian Frank Sebek, 85, of Park City, left this world peacefully on March 23, 2014, surrounded by his beloved family, after fighting a heroic battle for his life,
Adrian was born Sept. 20, 1928 in Fremont, Neb. Adrian moved to Southern California at the age of 14, when he took on his middle name of Frank, and graduated L.A. High School, Class of '46. He met his wife Jeanne at the beach, and they married in 1953. He was a proud member of the United States Air Force, stationed in Chandler, Ariz., during the Korean War. His love of airplanes continued through his entire life. Frank and Jeanne raised their four children in Newport Beach, Calif., next to the beloved ocean they both adored. Frank worked as a salesman for building and plumbing supplies in the early years, and later opened All-Check-Cashing in Tustin, Calif.
Once retired, "Hawk" (the name he became affectionately known by), moved to Park City, Utah in 2004. An abstract, one-of-a-kind, incredibly unique, smooth talking, lover of... music, dancing, good-lookin' ladies, great hats, unique people, family and plain ole' having fun. He was loving, generous, and kind. He held close to his heart his beloved family and the extended family he formed during his ten years in Park City. Hawk lived a full life and enjoyed it right up until the end, calling every day, his BEST DAY EVER! He had enormous vigor and vitality and shined brightly to all those who knew him. We will miss his, "BADA BING, BADA BOOM" smooth moves, enthusiastic stories and deciphering his most original "Hawk-eeze" language in daily emails. YAH-FER-SHUR your memory will always put a smile on our face. GROT-ZEE Hawk for brightening our world with your fun loving, carefree spirit, and showing us by example, how to live a joyful, yet simple, life.
Adrian Frank Sebek (aka Hawk) is survived by his sister, Sue (Stanley) Jones of Payson, Ariz., and his four children; John (Debbie) Sebek of Park City, along with Lynn (Bill) White, Jeff (Ann) Sebek, and Patti Fisher, all of Southern California. In addition, he leaves behind five loving grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and his "adopted" French son, Michel Cochet. A Celebration of Hawk's Life is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend in Park City. He will be dearly missed, but Hawk's memories will continue to soar, and never be forgotten.
