John Feipel, 65, died on March 5, 2021 after a six-year battle with cancer.
Born to Eileen (Murphy) and Benjamin Feipel on July 27, 1955 in Little
Company of Mary Hospital, John was a native of Canaryville and a proud
member of the broader Southwest Side community. A devout Catholic baptized
and formed in the faith at St. Gabriel Church, he served the City of Chicago
for 33 years as a skilled laborer for the Chicago Water Department. "Bird,"
as he was known, was an avid bicyclist joining friends on rides along Lake
Shore Drive and into Indiana and Michigan. John was a devoted son, brother,
husband, father, grandfather, and uncle who took great pleasure in the
network of family and friends that gave life its richest meaning. He is
survived by his wife of 26 years, Jean (Kitchen) Feipel; his daughter Angela
(Josh) Pagliaro and grandsons, Trevor and Liam Pagliaro; sisters, Barbara
Lockwood (Scott Appleby) and Cathy Allen (Gary). John was uncle of many
nieces, nephews, and great-nephews and leaves behind a legion of friends
from the "hood". John will live in our hearts forever.
