My dad started bowling with Karl and Karl's best friend Mike about 30 years ago, and I joined their team a few years later. For the next 25+ years I truly enjoyed Karl and Mike's friendship - bowling, our semi-annual fishing trips, concerts, ballgames, karaoke, boating, or just hanging out eating and drinking. Karl and Mike were two of the greatest guys I've ever known. Now they are gone way too soon and I'm heartbroken. Karl used to tell me time and time again that he couldn't believe he found his true love Judy when he did, and how incredibly happy he was since then. Thank you Judy for being there for him all those years. My heartfelt condolences to you and all of Karl's family. Rest in peace Karl, my man. [2 Timothy 4:7-8]

My deepest sympathy goes out to Judy and the entire Mirkes family. I was very sad to hear the news of Karl's passing. Karl was truly a remarkable person. Thank you for the fourteen years of service with the Oakbrook Terrace Police Department.

Dear Judy & The Entire Mirkes Family:
Krystyna & I extend our heartfelt sympathies to you and all of the Mirkes family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you asking the Lord to give you the strength to carry this loss by allowing you to focus on the many fond memories. For it is these fond memories which help to counteract the sorrow and grief and over time, those fond memmories will lead to joy because you experienced Karl in your life. Eternal rest grant unto you my friend, and let perpetual light shine upon you now and forever.
Paul & Krystyna Saletnik

Karl is the first of the Elbridge neighborhood boys to leave this earth. We all therefore will keep his memories alive. He had the best sense of humor, the highest vocabulary, and in fact was the most intelligent of the bunch. RIP

Very sad to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers are with you Judy and your family. I have many great memories: card games, Sox games, bowling, and karaoke. The next karaoke song I sing will be Imagine in his honor. Looking forward to saying goodbye to my friend at a future date. We miss you and love you Karl. Rest in peace.
