Kirk Andrew Servantez

Kirk Andrew Servantez, 36, of Mason City died on Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at MercyOne North Iowa Medical Center.

     A Celebration of Life was held at 3 p.m. on Friday, March 5, 2021 with a one-hour prior visitation at Fullerton Funeral Home, 123 2nd St SE, Mason City.

     Kirk aka “Kirby,” “Kirky” and “Kirkimo,” was born on July 20, 1984 in Mason City, the son of Harold and Janice (Servantez) Schaer.  He attended Mason City schools and then earned his GED in 2003.  Kirk worked for Jiffy Lube, Auto Edge Service Center and most recently, Ziegler CAT.

     Kirk lived his life always on the go; he never sat down and always kept busy.  He was the kind of person who always wanted to help others or lend a helping hand.  He had a heart of gold and cared deeply about his family and his friends.   Kirk absolutely loved going camping; every summer he would camp at his family’s camp grounds and the last year at Camp at the Woods.  He enjoyed being outdoors whether it was camping, hunting, fishing, or sitting by the bonfire and offering up a beer to anyone visiting.  Kirk was a barbeque smoke master and would often make sure everyone else ate before he did; although he was notoriously known for sneaking off to have sweets when no-one was looking.   His other hobbies included crafts with the family and racing with his dad and grandpa.  Kirk was a family man; he loved his two children and making them happy.  His kindness and generosity will always be remembered.

     Those left to cherish his memory include the love of his life and mother to his children, Keshia VanEllen; children, Kaden and Kinzly Servantez; parents, Harold and Jan Schaer; brothers, Ethan (Kelsey) Schaer and Hunter (Peyton) Schaer; paternal grandmother, Mary Servantez; mother-in-law, Mary VanEllen; brother-in-law, Steve (Angie) VanEllen; sister-in-law, Amy (Juan) VanEllen and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

     He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Tony Servantez; paternal grandfather, Butch Schaer; grandparents-in-law, Duane and Laura Wubbena; sister-in-law, Stephanie VanEllen and an uncle.

     In expression of sympathy memorials may be made in care of the family.
