Obituary

Richard Krivy, 80, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, passed away May 6, 2019. He was born May 30, 1939, in Caldwell, Kansas, to Elmer and Blanche Krivy. Richard was very proud of his Czech heritage and was born Richard Lee Krivohlavek which was shortened to Krivy in his teen years.

Richard married Sharon Kay Fullerton on October 3, 1958, in Blackwell, Oklahoma. He graduated from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1961. Together, Richard and Sharon raised their three children, Susan, Linda, and David in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma.

He was a member of First United Methodist Church in Duncan, Oklahoma, and Church of the Servant after moving to Oklahoma City in 2009. Richard was a licensed professional engineer in several states and enjoyed a successful career at Caterpillar, Halliburton, and Hydra Rig. Richard was always a very hard worker because he lived to support his family. He often joked that he “failed at retirement three times”.

He enjoyed designing and building furniture, even constructing an addition to his family’s home. He passed on his love of woodworking to his son, son-in-law, and grandsons. He loved classic cars and could fix anything. He was known by everyone as an avid Oklahoma State Cowboy fan and was proud to call it his alma mater. He loved his family dearly and had a kind smile for everyone he met.

He had a wonderful voice and sang bass in church choirs and with the Barbershoppers for over 60 years. He is fondly remembered by his children and grandchildren for singing family favorites such as “Grandma’s Lie Soap”, “Hole in the Bottom of the Sea”, and “Oh Lord, It’s Hard to be Humble”.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Blanche Krivy and his daughter, Linda David Crump.

He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sharon Krivy; one sister, Jan Coon and husband Ron of Duncan, Oklahoma; daughter, Susan Hensley and husband Billy of San Angelo, Texas; son, David Krivy and wife Sarah of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; six grandchildren: Stephanie, Jason, Aaron, Whittney, Carter, and Jackson; six great-grandchildren: Rylee, Parker, Sophie, Easton, Gibson, and Langdon, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorial services will be held 10:30 a.m., Friday, May 10, 2019, at Church of the Servant with Rev. Tim Travers officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Music Ministries at Church of the Servant, 14343 N. Macarthur Blvd. in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 73142.

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in Revelation 21:4 which says “he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” We have assurance from God’s word the Bible and we can be certain God will fulfill the words from his word.

Honestly, when I try to picture Uncle Richard now, I see him at peace.....tinkering on a car, singing a big, booming hymn, then breaking for a delicious feast of Grandma's cooking with her and Linda, topped off by a dessert of poppyseed kolaches! Can't you see it?
