David Keith Cirka, Sr.

David Keith Cirka, Sr., age 76 of Sylva, passed away Saturday, December 26, 2020. 

He will be dearly missed by his loving wife of 38 years, Gail; son, Keith; grandchildren, Bruce and Krystal; and many neighbors and clients.

God has certainly blessed us all with knowing David.  He was the owner of Your Herbalist for 10 great years, providing custom formulas for his clients.  David studied herbs and formulas for 30 years.  His mother was a herbalist and his father was a naturalist.  He was a proud Marine just like his three brothers and cousins.  He lived every day for God, Family, and the Corps.  He was devoted to helping people.  David will be missed and loved by everyone that knew him.

Private cremation arrangements have been entrusted to Appalachian Funeral Services of Sylva.

Words of sympathy December 29, 2020 Mavis Winkler wrote a sympathy message My Dearest Gail & Family; My very sincere condolences on David's death. He is with his Lord who he served right to the end. I miss "my herbalist," my "best friend" and "his words of wisdom" when I needed them most. Selfishly, I will miss our emails and our conversations where we "would solve the world's problems" with laughter. May he forever be with you, Gail, in thoughts and deeds. And give him my ((((WI HUGS))) always. With deepest respect and love to you, Mavis Winkler.

Dearest Gail It is with sadness that I learned of David's passing - he was a grand man and I know he was the love of your life. I pray that your faith keeps you strong and that God wraps you in His loving arms and gives that peace that passes all understanding. I love you and if you need me I'm just a phone call away.
