David James Uhlik

Date of Death: October 25, 2023

Date of Birth: June 26, 1945


It is with great sadness that we announce the death on October 25, 2023 of David James Uhlik after a period of declining health. Born June 26, 1945, in Lakewood, Ohio, David was the third child of Florence and Frank Uhlik.

David loved learning and intellectual stimulation and was an avid reader throughout his life. After graduating with a BS from St. Edwards College in Austin, Texas, he continued his education receiving a MS from the University of Texas at Austin followed by a PhD in microbiology from the University of Missouri at Columbia. He taught medical microbiology for many years before moving into the pharmaceutical industry, where he held various positions in research and technical services.

It was at Marion Laboratories in Kansas City, Missouri that David met Susan Mondabaugh, whom he married in 1986 on one of the hottest summer days the Midwest could possibly offer. They lived in the Midwest for many years until retiring to Rockport, Maine in 2000. In 2017, David and Susan moved to Topsham, Maine.

David is predeceased by his parents, his two older sisters, Florence Ann Fitchett and Geraldine Jones, and his first wife Laura Miller.

David is survived by his wife, Susan Mondabaugh; two children from his first marriage, Michael J. Uhlik and Caroline McCoach; and grandchildren Zoe Uhlik, Asher Uhlik, and Fiona McCoach.

David’s easy going spirit, kindness, generosity will be greatly missed, as well as seeing him walk through The Highlands taking photographs of flowers and fungi.
