On July 29th, 2022, Edward Michael Panik Jr, 68, joined his father Edward Michael Panik Sr, suddenly in heaven. He was born and raised in Chicago Illinois until he moved to St. Petersburg Florida in 1997 where he lived until his final days. He worked for Dominick’s for 25 years before working for the City of Treasure Island for 18 years. He was a main stay at Jimmy B’s Beach Bar in St. Pete Beach and absolutely loved his Harley Davidson Motorcycle. He was a die hard Chicago Blackhawks fan who loved the sport and loved the friendships he fostered because of it. He was a loving father who had the best sense of humor. He leaves behind his mother, Mary Lou Panik, his brother, Scott Panik, his kids, Bradley Panik and Dionna Panik and his best friend, Gary Berg, along with countless more family and friends. We have no doubt that he’s riding in heaven and we will one day join him again on his ride in eternity. Until then, he will be greatly missed.
