Frank Rudolph Hubacek was consumed by his law practice. He had an enormous capacity for work . . . and work . . . and still more work.
Because of ill health he retired in 1933, after 40 years of practicing law in Minneapolis, dying a decade later at age 82. In memorial services sponsored by the Hennepin County Bar Association on March 21, 1944, he was recalled:
"He gave his entire time and attention to the practice of law. He had a great capacity for work and was possessed of great energy. He was able and painstaking. He enjoyed a large practice and numbered among his clients large and important interests in the Twin Cities. Clients came to him. His contacts were made through work well done. He seldom lost a client. Once a client always a client, and this, more than anything else that can be said of him, is the best test of his worth. His clients clung to him throughout the years of his active practice. He took very little time for recreation and the demand upon him for his time was such that he spent most of his waking hours at work. He was methodical and thorough and wholly loyal to his clients. He was, in addition to being a capable and successful lawyer, a good businessman and his opinion on business matters was constantly sought by his clients. He made no effort to please for the sake of popularity but he was, nevertheless, to those who knew him, affable and companionable."
