Willard C. Fick

November 27, 1929 — August 20, 2022

Lake City

Willard C. Fick, 92, of Lake City, MN died August 20, 2022 at Elysian Senior Living surrounded by his family. He was born November 27, 1929 in rural Lake City to Clarence and Mabel (Dammann) Fick. He was baptized at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lake City and graduated Lincoln High School in 1949. Willard married Patricia (Kluess) Fick on August 16, 1958 in Appleton, WI. They have two children, Mark (Lori) Fick of Lake City, MN and Debra (James) Roschen of Zumbro Falls, MN.

Willard served in the US Army (Fort Leonard Wood, MO) in 1953, but was discharged early due to a medical condition. He returned home to the family farm where he made a life-long career in farming. Willard enjoyed raising beef cattle and crop farming. In addition, he operated a custom round baling business for many years which allowed him to become acquainted with many area farmers.

In 1977, Willard became a Charter Member of the National Cattlemen’s Association. He was also an active member, promoting the beef industry in the Wabasha County Cattlemen’s Association. He was a member of the American Legion, a life-long member of St. John’s Lutheran Church where he served on past councils, and the Sportman’s Club of Lake City.

Willard loved to bowl. Over the course of 35 years, he bowled competitively with a men’s league and couple’s league. In addition, Willard loved to dance, and would rarely be found without a deck of cards or raffle tickets in his pocket.  He was always prepared for a game of euchre.

Survivors include his wife, Pat;  two children;  seven grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and three siblings Marvin (Ruth) Fick, Delores (Dave) Kline, and Richard (Lori) Fick, and sister-in-law Barb Fick. He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Mabel, brother Elmer Fick and an infant brother and sister.
