  • Tragic News about Hruby family

    We have received confirmation that our friends, John and Tinker Hruby, and their daughter Katherine, were found dead in their home this morning. The investigation is continuing. The Hrubys owned the Marlow Review and the Comanche County Chronicle (Elgin). They lived in north Duncan, OK. We do not have any more information at this time, but will continue to gather information and share it with members.

    The Marlow Review website posted “Please Pray with Us.  At this time, The Marlow Review asks the general public for prayers following the tragic deaths of John Hruby, our publisher, his wife Tinker, and their daughter Katherine. Our staff endeavors to continue to serve Marlow to the best of our ability going forward. Thank you.”

    With a very heavy heart, our deepest condolences go out to the families of John and Tinker Hruby.
