George R. “Rick” Kick
George R. “Rick” Kick, the first son of Laverne Mae Kick (Luedde) and Charles Guerette Kick, was born Sep. 1, 1950, in St. Louis, Missouri.
On Sep. 25, 1995, Rick was united in marriage to Julie Ann Hill (Kralik) in Union, Missouri. They settled in Beaufort, Missouri, where together they combined and continued to raise their family.
During their early marriage, Rick continued to grow his company, Total Security. In his free time, Rick enjoyed horseback riding, fishing, hunting, four wheeling but mostly spending time with his family and friends. Rick’s love of the lake and fishing led to the family’s relocation to Stockton, Missouri in 2003. There Rick found joy in lawn care, boating, retirement, and his nine grandchildren.
Rick also had compassion for animals and on several occasions was known to bring them home unannounced. Several dogs and cats, not to mention, horses, chickens, rabbits… and a few other furry critters along the way were given a second chance.
Rick is survived by his loving wife Julie Kick, son Richard Kick (Jan Miller) of Sullivan; three daughters Tiffany (husband Jamian) Borders of Willard, Ashley (husband Jake) Howe of Grove, OK, Cassandra (husband Flip) Elder of Stockton, son Chad Hill (Brandy Johnston) of Stockton, foster son John Goode of St. Louis; 9 grandchildren: Samantha Kick of Sullivan, Beau Kick of Sullivan, Anthony Howe of Grove, OK, Matthew Howe of Grove, OK, Allie Elder of Stockton, Ethan Howe of Grove, OK, Evy Elder of Stockton, Alexis Hill of Stockton, Zoey Elder of Stockton; daughter-in-law Katie Kick of Cuba; sister Karen (husband Steve) Pickett of Grove City, OH, brother Charles (wife Suzette) Lewis of Pacific, sister Kim (husband Gilberto) Fierro of Imperial, sister Lisa (husband Gary) Koester of Imperial and many other relatives.
