David Zivkovic, age 54, passed away Monday, December 21, 2020 due to Covid-19.

David was born on October 19, 1966, in Chicago, to Pina (Guiseppina) and Novi (Novica) Zivkovic.   He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Richard; he is survived by his brother Mark and sister-in-law Jean, sister Susan Schneider and brother-in-law Richard, and brother Michael and sister-in-law Dawn, and his beloved nephews and nieces; Christopher, Chelsea, John, Sam, and Maxine. 

Although David was born with disabilities and had numerous physical ailments later in life, he remained independent-minded and resourceful, with a strong desire to take care of himself to his dying day. He will be remembered for his God-given resilience in overcoming the lifelong hardships that came his way. David had a striking personality, good sense of humor, and a strong connection with a diverse range people that exemplified his nature. As a child, David had many friends, excelled at sports, and was a well-traveled participant on family trips. He even attended National Luis College and obtained a 2-year associate assistant teaching degree for people with disabilities.

David was an avid White Sox fan who loved to talk about his Sox. He always kept track of the team’s progress and stats, as well as attended the team’s annual convention.
 

Those who knew David admired his willingness to make the best of his life no matter his traits, which at times made life difficult for him in this world.  He now rests in peace beside his parents, inside the gates of heaven.
