His obituary was published in the The Times-Picayune newspaper on May 30, 1933 at Louisiana.9 His obituary stated:
Dr. Adrian Hava Taken by Death at Home of Son
Physician Won Wide Recognition During Influenza Epidemic of '18
Dr. Adrian Hava, widely known physician of New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf coast, died at the residence of a son, Stanley C. Hava, 1616 Governor Nicholls street, Monday night. He was 69 years old, and had been ill but five days.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 10:30 a. m. at the Bultman Mortuary Service, Inc., 3338 St. Charles avenue. Rites at St. Augustin Catholic church, Governor Nicholls and St. Claude streets, will be conducted immediately afterwards, and interment will be in Metairie cemetery.
Dr. Hava, who commuted for many years between his home at Waveland, Miss., and his residence here, won general recognition for his service on the Mississippi Gulf coast during the influenza epidemic of 1918. Leaving New Orleans after a strenuous day, he spent practically the whole of night, after night riding from one residence to the other along the coast to render aid to the suffering.
Friend of Needy
His clinic at Waveland was a medical refuge for scores unable to pay for the service, and he prepared food as special nourishment for needy sufferers, delivering it in person and with the aid of friends to his patients.
Descendant of five generations of physicians and men of science, Dr. Hava was graduated in pharmacy at the medical department of the old University of Louisiana, predecessor of Tulane university, in 1881 and two years later received the degree of doctor of medicine at the same institution. In 1884 he was awarded the master of pharmacy degree there.
He was a student as well as a practitioner, and wrote a number of treatises in the filed of medical and physical science. Among them were papers showing the results of his findings in the 1918 influenza epidemic, one on carbon monoxide poisoning, and others on yellow fever and spontaneous combustion.
His father, Juan Jose Hava, a doctor of philosophy as well as dentist and physician, brought his family to New Orleans from Havana, Cuba, when Dr. Adrian Hava was five years old. The family several generations back had moved from Portugal to Mexico before the descendants went to Cuba.
Dr. Hava established his home at Waveland in 1913. One of his five sons, Clarence C. Hava, now is a resident of that city.
Other survivors are Drs. Walter C. and Frank C. Hava and Henry C. Hava, sons; a daughter, Miss Marie Dolores Hava and his wife, the former Miss Marie Ernestine Chavigny of New Orleans.

His funeral service was held on May 31, 1933 at St. Augustin Catholic Church, New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana.9 He was buried on May 31, 1933 in Metarie Cemetery in New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana.9

John died on January 15, 1894 in Louisiana.3
His obituary was published in the The Times-Picayune Newspaper on January 16, 1894 at Louisiana.3 His obituary stated:
The death of Dr. John G. Hava, which occurred at half-past 10 o'clock yesterday morning, removes from New Orleans one of its greatest physicians, most distinguished literatures and best citizens. The news of the doctor's demise was by no means a surprise to his numerous friends, for he had been seriously ill with an incurable disease for a long time. His stately figure handsome countenance and gentle smile had not been seen for any months and inquiry soon developed the information that the doctor was confined to his room with a cancer of the face. All that medical science and surgical skill could do to relieve the suffering man was done, but without avail. The tenderest nursing and care of a loving wife and affectionate sons comforted his declining days.
Mr. John G. Hava was born July 12, 1883, in Guines, Island of Cuba. He came from a family of physicians, his father, Dr. Francisco Hava, being on the the most prominent doctors of the Cuban capital in his day. Dr. Hava received his collegiate education in Havana and at the age of 14 years was graduated from the University of Havana with the degree of bachelor of arts. He was sent to Philadelphia at an early age and studied dentistry, graduating in 1851. He then returned to Havana, and dentistry not being congenial for him, Dr. Hava decided to study medicine. He went to Paris, France and under the direction of the great professors of those days graduated as a physician in 1858 (?). He returned once more to his Havana home and practiced his profession with great success until 1868. The Cuban revolution having broken out in that year, Dr. Hava wielded his forcible pen in behalf of the independence of his native isle. He edited a newspaper in opposition to the Spanish tyranny, and was forced to leave the island. He cam to the United States with the view of settling in Philadelphia, but finding New New Orleans a congenial place to live, decided to locate here. His career in this city as a physician is well-known, and requires no enlogium at this time. He was successful in his practice from the very start. He devoted a great deal of attention to chemistry and his preparations of phosphates in a soluble form won him much prominence in that branch of medicine. The services he rendered in the yellow fever epidemic of 1878 were most praiseworthy. Since 1877 he has owned the large drug store on Chartres street, dispensing charity to ll who were in need, and giving his services free of charge to the poor.
During his long career in this city Dr. Hava was always known as a good citizen, true friend and charitable man. He was possessed of a happy disposition, having a kind and gentle word for all who came his way, and gave as liberally as his means afforded. His patriotism was unflinching, his love for his native Cuba being deep-rooted in his heart, and even in his last days his most ardent hopes were to see "the ever-faithful isle" free from the Spanish rule.
Dr. Hava married Miss Francisca Balbin, a native Cuban of German descent, and she and three sons, Dr. Adrian Hava, Manuel Hava, a druggist, and Francisca Hava, a medical student are left to mourn his loss.
The funeral will take place at 3 o'clock this afternoon from his late residence, No. 252 Burgundy street
Dr. Havn's demise will be a great loss to the literary world of New Orleans, in which he was a shining light. His accomplishments as a writer were not confined to medical topics. He wrote in French and Spanish and in the realms of fancy exhibited a graceful and poetic style.

A newspaper article in The Times-Picayune Newspaper, New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana, dated February 1, 1896 reported Too Much Study
Held Responsible for Frank Hava's Siucide (sic)
A well-known and highly connected young man named Frank Hava, aged 25 years, in a fit of melancholy, committed suicide at 3:30 o'clock last evening by blowing out his brains. The young man was the youngest son of the late Dr. A. Hava, who for years conducted a drug store at No. 415 Chartres, near Conti street. Since his death the establishment has ben managed by his other two sons, Dr. Adrian Hava and Manuel Hava.
The young man resided with his brother, Dr. Hava, and his family, at No 1459 Annunciation street. He was of a very agreeable disposition, and made friends wherever he went, and those who were intimately acquainted with him never for a moment suspected that he contemplated taking his life. The news of his suicide greatly shocked them.
The young man some time ago informed his brother that he would like to become a physician, and acting upon the advice of the latter he took several courses at the Tulane Memical (sic) College. He was an ardent and devoted student. Of late his relatives have noticed that the young man was acting in a very strange manner, but they at first paid no particular attention to him, as they thought his actions were due to his constant study. He was a regular visitor to the drug store, and his brother, Manuel, who noticed that he was acting in a very strange manner, kept watch on him for fear that he would do himself some bodily harm. He frequently entered a room containing a lot of rubbish in the yard back of the store, and it was in this place that he put on end to his existence, while his brother was in the store.
The young man, it seems, partook of breakfast yesterday morning at his brother's residence, on Annunciation street, and left there apparently in the best of spirits. He called at the drug store, and when his brother noticed that he was acting so peculiarly he requested a friend of his to take the youth out to the races, in hopes that the sport would distract his mind. The parties left, but about noon Hava returned and entered a restaurant opposite the drug store and requested the waiter to give him plenty of roast beef and potatoes. He partook of the meal with a relish, and after paying for it returned to the drugstore, where he remained until the above hour.
Hava walked back into the yard and entered the room. He placed a quilt on the floor and laid down on it, and drawing his ivory-handled fiveshooter revolver placed the muzzle in his mouth and fired a bullet into his brain. On hearing the report of the shot Mr. Hava ran to the room and found his brother lying on the floor dead, with his hand still clutching the weapon, on his chest. The news of the suicide quickly spread, and in a few moments a large crowd of people assembled on the scene. The police took charge of the body until the arrival of the coroner, who viewed the remains.4
