Dennie Bosko Krivokapich was born January 2, 1953 but it was the date he entered heaven, on March 6, 2022, that was his real birthday. A transition of celebration for a man whose mission and passion was spreading his love of Jesus.
While he was an accountant by trade his passion since 2007 was ministry, especially in Uganda, Africa. He loved the people of Uganda and even when he was back in the states worked tirelessly to spread the Gospel.
He helped establish a School of Ministry which helped students lead churches in their home area and, in 2009, planted a church in Western Uganda through a mission trip. He created "Legacy for Jesus" which has helped young children with their school fees with the help of Calvary Chapel in Farmington, NM.
In the past three years he helped Uganda's Simple Churches found numerous churches. His other ministry efforts included helping orphaned and divorced people afford housing and food during the COVID-19 lockdown in Uganda, feeding more than 2000 people.
An avid talker, he never met a stranger and had a huge heart for street evangelism and jail ministry. He loved to share Jesus with anyone he came into contact with. He was a support system and encourager for many.
In addition to his love for the Lord, he was proud of his two children, Holly and Brent. During their childhoods, he was a constant presence at their events and coached several of their teams, including Brent's fourth grade undefeated basketball team, and was the self-appointed head cheerleader for Holly's soccer games. The family enjoyed games of gin rummy, watching sports and making each other laugh. Dennie was so proud to see them using their talents and passions to serve others. He also was always deeply grateful to their mother, Nancy Miller.
Even in his final days, when others may start to doubt or feel angry, Dennie was steadfast in his joy for the next chapter of his life. He would like his lasting legacy to be for everyone to know that Jesus loved them and for his children to know how proud he was of them.
He is survived by his children, Holly Krivokapich (Katie) and Brent Krivokapich; and siblings Amanda Hewes (Sam), Gary Krivokapich (Tony), and Pete Krivokapich (Leona). He also leaves behind dozens of Ugandans who he considered his brothers and sisters in ministry. Holly and Brent are forever grateful for the support that Pete, Leona and Gary provided to Dennie.
Dennie was laid to rest on March 9, 2022 at Greenlawn Cemetery. The family will hold a celebration of life at a later date.
