1958-2013

Edgar “Ed” Allen Kvapil passed away suddenly on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at the age of 55 years, 3 months, and 18 days. Ed was born to Frank and Frances Kvapil on Aug. 21, 1958, in San Antonio, Texas.

Ed graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1976 and attended San Antonio Junior College. On March 22, 1980, he married his beloved wife of 33 years, Gerry Kennedy Kvapil. They made their home in La Vernia, where over the past 20 years, they raised four children. Ed loved hunting, gardening, cooking, western-themed novels, and country music but was less than fond of daylight saving time or wearing suits. He was an enthusiastic supporter of his children’s school and sports activities. He worked for City Public Service in San Antonio for 34 years, where he made many lifelong friends and was admired for his sense of humor and down-to-earth approach to everyday problems. Ed and Gerry looked forward to his upcoming retirement and were planning an Alaskan cruise, where he hoped to finally fulfill his dream of experiencing the Northern Lights. Ed’s family took precedence over all else in his life but he was always there to help his friends and community with fund-raising events, home building and home improvement projects, or whatever else was needed of him. Ed was a loving husband, father, son, and brother and will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and community.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his grandparents; mother- and father-in-law John and Mary Jane Kennedy; brothers-in-law John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy; sister-in-law Cindy Koch; and nephew Michael Gonzales.

Ed is survived by his wife, Gerry; their children, Jennifer Kvapil, Kimberly Kvapil, Christopher Kvapil, and Justin Kvapil; sisters Carolyn Mosmeyer, Darlene Livingston, and Janice Luffman; brothers-in-law Mark Kennedy and Mike Kennedy; sister-in-law Diana Rodriguez; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12, from 5-8 p.m., with a rosary at 7 p.m. in the Finch Funeral Chapel in La Vernia.

A funeral Mass will be held on Friday at 10 a.m. in St. Ann’s Catholic Church in La Vernia, officiated by the Rev. Stan Fiuk.

Interment will follow in St. Ann’s Catholic Cemetery in La Vernia.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Cancer Research Institute, One Exchange Plaza, 55 Broadway, Suite 1802, New York, NY 10006 or www.cancerresearch.org.
