River Grove, IL
Henryk Cepiel, passed away on September 23, 2022, at the age of 74. Loving husband to Ula of 49 years, devoted father to two sons, Slawek (Mila) and David (Teresa), and a treasured grandfather of the late Daniel.
Henryk was a sweet caring soul, always showing his warmth and concern for the well-being of others. He was a great friend to many, spreading kindness and never with expectation of reward. Henryk will be remembered for his true love of nature, most of all fishing and gardening. At every occasion, he shared his knowledge and expertise on how to plant and care for flowers and other plants. He enjoyed colors and the smiles of nature finding beauty all around. He also enjoyed family time and liked cooking and sharing recipes.
There will be no wake, only a private family gathering. We will be planting a tree in Henryk’s honor and memory. Our Dad will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.
