Anton Kanka Grave Marker

 

This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that Anton Kanka served in the U.S. Army during World War II and died on June 18, 1988 at the age of 68.

Anton Kanka was not on the Original Wall Unit List, which is in Hackensack High School, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.
