Lawrence (Larry) Schick

May 2, 1930 — Dec. 19, 2013

Lawrence (Larry) Schick passed away Dec. 19th in Glenwood Springs, CO. He was born May 2, 1930, to Gottfried (Scotty) and Mary Schick in Fort Colllins, where he farmed for many years. He moved to Glenwood Springs 35 years ago where he worked in the mines, was a Realtor, and had his own snowplow business. After semi-retiring, he did counseling at the halfway house in Glenwood Springs and Rifle. His roots were always in Fort Collins. Larry was a hard worker, and never knew a stranger. He held membership at the Hot Springs pool in Glenwood for many years, where he would spend hours conversing with old friends that would gather there, and with travelers that came to enjoy the pool. He loved telling jokes, and befriended many people who needed a home. He would always have room to put someone up, and would help anyone.

He is survived by his sons, Robert Schick of Menominee, MI, and William Schick of Denver, and daughter, Debra Lawrence of Glenwood Springs, along with grandchildren and their families, Jason (Kaitlin) Schick and Isla, Jody (Ryan) Gallent, Megan and Parker, Cassidy and Casey Lawrence, and Cody and Kaylee Schick, his sister-in-law, Leona Schick of Windsor, and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was proceeded in death by his parents, brothers, Edwin and Richard, and first wife Eleanor.

Memorial will be at Glenwood Baptist Church at 1pm on Saturday January 4th. There will be a light lunch.
