David Krickl, an Oak Park native, died recently and suddenly in his adopted state of Florida. He was the husband of Celeste, wonderful and caring father to Dewey and Kara. David and Celeste relocated to Florida in 2001 with their infant children to start a new life in the Sunshine State. He loved practicing dentistry, but always said, “First, I’m a husband; Second, I’m a father and Third, I’m all the rest!”
He was an ardent fan of the Chicago Bears, Blackhawks and Cubs! Loved golf, playing guitar and spending an afternoon fishing. He was a wonderful chef and nothing made him happier than cooking for family and friends.
David is also survived by his father, Joseph L. Jr.; siblings Catherine (Drew) Rutz, Joseph, Paul (Donna), Raymond (Nancy), Thomas (Amy Ma), John (Nancy) and Mary (Tim) Flanagan and a number of nephews, nieces, loving in-laws and friends. He was predeceased by his mother Catherine.
A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018 at 1 p.m.
at Ascension Church in Oak Park.
Everyone is invited to a gathering in the Pine Room, (adjacent to the church) after the Mass to share stories of David and celebrate his life.
