Joseph Klimczak

March 8, 1966 – March 11, 2022

Joseph Klimczak, a resident of Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs for many years, passed away Friday, March 11, 2022.  He formerly resided in Chicago, Illinois.

Joseph was born in 1966 to Stanislaw and Emilia (Witelus) Klimczak in Poland.  He married his best friend, Margie, in 1989 in Chicago, IL.  He was a successful business man and together with his loving wife, they chased the American dream while also being an incredible husband and loving father. He valued being present for family through accomplishments as well as being supportive during challenges, and taught his children to enjoy every moment life has to offer. He had a servant heart, a gentle soul, and often kept things light and positive. His calming presence would ease a worrying heart. He deeply loved his family so much, they were his world, and he is so proud of who they have become and will continue growing to be. Despite challenges, he faced them with a smile with patience and kindness shining through, came out a hero and stayed strong until the end, a true inspiration.

He lives on in the hearts and minds of his loving wife, Malgorzata “Margie” (Milan) Klimczak; son, Michael; daughter, Dorothy; two sisters: Janine (late Robert) Seliga and Sophie (Christopher) Matulajtys; brother-in-law Bogumil Milan; nieces Yolanda, Joanne, and Samantha; nephews Jack (and family) and Richard; cousin Arthur (Lucy) Klimczak as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives, friends, and community members.  He was preceded in death by his parents and a baby brother. He will be dearly missed. His loved ones will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest.

A visitation will be from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. with a rosary to follow on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at Shrine of Remembrance (1730 E. Fountain Blvd Colorado Springs, CO 80910).  Funeral mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, March 18, 2022 at St. Dominic Catholic Church (5354 S.
