Chris was born in West Bend, WI to Dennis Zielike and Dawn Troedel. A lifelong resident of Boltonville, he worked as a roofer and acted as his late father’s caretaker. Chris died unexpectedly after being released from the hospital where he was treated for diabetes.
Chris is survived by his mom, the love of his life Karina Demlow, half-brother Justin Zielicke, and many relatives and friends.
He was predeceased by his father Dennis and a half-brother Anthony Zielicke.
Chris was a proud Wiccan who loved his motorcycle, music, and family and friends who knew they could count on him for help when in need. He’d pick up hitchhikers, and give you the shirt off his back.
Services will be Friday, October 18, 2019 at Myrhum-Patten Funeral Home at 215 Forest Avenue, Kewaskum. Friends are welcome between 5:00 and 7:00 pm with a service to follow at 7:00 PM. The service will be followed by a life celebration at The Speakeasy, 619 W. Main Street, Newburg. A private cremation will take place at a later date.
Instead of flowers, memorials to the family are appreciated.
There is a reason for being here
In this world and this life.
There is a reason for leaving.
When the purposes of this life are done.
The soul must journey beyond
To pause, to rest.
To wait for those who are loved.
For the world beyond is a land
Of eternal summer, and of joy.
Far from the cares of this world,
With happiness and with youth anew.
As the evergreen does grow and prosper
Both in summer and winter, year after year,
So also does the should continue
From life to life to life,
Growing ever stronger, wiser, and richer.
Blessed be my baby.
