He had a zest for life, a sweet nature and the most meticulous workshop you have ever seen.  His love and respect for firearms was a passion of his for a very long time. He was a very skilled gunsmith and had many laughs with his friends who came to visit him at the shop. He liked to go shooting, make custom rifles, and repair antique firearms. He will be missed by all who knew him. He was predeceased by his loving wife Patricia Chervenak Hlavna, and his parents Frank & Sophie (Vitko) Hlavna of Buffalo New York, and his Sister Karen (Hlavna) Bauman.
