Josip Franjak, a resident of Hyde Park for a number of years, passed away on Friday, July 28. He was born in Croatia where he worked farmland. He continuously learned English while working as a janitor in various businesses in Hyde Park. After his retirement, he was often seen by neighbors cycling in the city and swimming at Promontory Point, 5491 S. Shore Dr.
He did not complain over losses; he would say instead, “That’s Life.”
