Obituary for Karl Kristian Oxnevad

Karl Kristian Oxnevad, 55, of Oak Park, IL passed away on June 11, 2019 at Loyola University
Medical Center in Maywood, IL. He was born on December 3, 1963 in Rockford, IL, the son of
Henrik and Ester (Nese) Oxnevad.
Karl grew up in DeKalb, IL, the youngest of five children. Karl attended Northern Illinois
University, where we wrote for the Northern Star. He later received a master’s degree from the
University of Illinois Springfield. He had a long career of reporting and working for publications
across Illinois and Iowa.
Karl was an avid reader and writer, and you could always find him with a book in his hand.
Some of his favorite subjects included politics and history, and he was always up for a re-read
of his favorite books. He loved to tell stories and always got a kick out of making people laugh.
He was a lifelong fan of Chicago sports teams, and took pride in watching his children perform
both onstage and on the sports field. He loved to travel around the United States and he
cherished vacations spent with his wife and children in Ludington, MI. Karl loved his family
dearly, and nothing made him happier than spending quality time with the people he loved the
most.
Karl is survived by his wife Susan of Oak Park, IL, children Bradley of Chicago, IL, Erik of
Traverse City, MI, and Emma of Oak Park, IL; his siblings, Rasmus (Sharon) Oxnevad and Rolf (Maureen) Oxnevad of DeKalb, IL., Louise (Dave) Nelson of Barrington Hills, IL, and Emily (Bill) Logan of Morrison, CO; and many nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Henrik and Ester.

Park, IL. The celebration will be held from 1-4 p.m.
