He graduated from Arsenal Tech High School in Indianapolis and studied mechanical engineering at Purdue University.

After retiring from Webb, he started his own company, Mr. Fix-it, where he put his mechanical, carpentry, electrical and plumbing skills to good use repairing and restoring many local homes and businesses. He retired at age 76 and moved to Victorian Manor Assisted Living from their Vinemont home in 2012 at age 82. He enjoyed camping, dancing, reading, traveling and time with friends and family.  

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Rita Rae Williams Crick of Hanceville; his daughter, Jodi Crick Skinner; son-in-law, Barry Skinner; and grandchildren, Shane William Skinner and Victoria Rae Skinner of Cullman. 

The family of Mr. Crick "Papa" wants to thank the staff of Victorian Manor and Southern Care Hospice for their loving care of our sweet patriarch. God bless you all!
