Obituary for Charles F. Svihlik

Charles F. Svihlik, 77, of Forreston, passed away peacefully in his home on January 1, 2019.
Charles was born on May 5th, 1941 to Frank and Lydia (Barta) Svihlik in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated from Proviso East in 1959. Charles married the love of his life, Marianne, on October 28th, 1963 in Oak Park, Illinois. Their love brought into this world three children: Charles W., Timothy, and Jeannine. They celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows.

Charles had a great love for the outdoors, trains, building model airplanes, and reading – especially about American history and novels by Dean Koontz and James Patterson. He worked at Quebecor Printing doing bindery and office copies for many years, retiring in 2004.
Charles is survived by his beloved wife, Marianne, his children Charles (Terry) Svihlik, Timothy (Jody) Svihlik, and Jeannine (Bob) Nalley, and grandchildren Jenny, Jarett, Peyton, and Justyne.
