Excerpted from the obituary appearing in the Austin-American Statesman online:
“For decades, Rosalio “Rabbit” Duran made his bar on East Sixth Street a hub for Chicano community politics. The bartender and former athlete seemed to know everybody and helped anyone who passed his way, especially those who came through the door of his welcoming bar, Rabbit’s Lounge… It also was a popular spot for the Mexican American community.
“He was proud to be Austin born and raised with five generations of heritage here and all the community efforts for the East Side,” said daughter Catherine Ferrell. “He had a big personality. As a bar owner, he was always big with a joke.”
Of the Durans’ other children, Ryan died earlier this year. George and Lisa join Angela and Catherine among the survivors…
A Catholic Mass will be said in Duran’s honor at 11 a.m. Aug. 25 at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church on East Ninth Street, his longtime parish.”
