Rev. Brother Casimir Husarik
Brother Casimir died suddenly from a hart attack, Tuesday, 10 May 1977. He had long been linked with La Salle College, having arrived in Hong Kong 44 years ago, a year after the opening of the College. He served the staff as teacher, sports-master and director. At the time of his death, he was Deputy Headmaster. Nearly all the graduates of La Salle in its 45 years history came under his benign influence.
He was born in Czechoslovakia, gifted with a marked aptitude for languages. He did his early studies in Lembecq, Belgium, and Dover, England, and obtained an Honours Degree (French) from the University of London.
contributed much to the prestige of the College as a teacher of merit and a wise
administrator. His outstanding characteristics were his enthusiasm and
versatility, his energy and perseverance in the various types of work he was
asked to do: teaching, sports administration, Old Boys Association, School
magazine, Legion of Mary, and he was a powerful instrument for moulding the
character of thousands of young men of La Salle College who came under his
influence. The old boys will remember him for his cheery disposition and
capacity for hard work: the real secret of his success and popularity was his
genuine unfailing kindness.
