Morris G. Zick, 77 of Jefferson, died on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at Alden Estates of Jefferson.
Morrie was born on June 12, 1942 in Prairie du Sac, WI, the son of LeRoy and Edith (Waydick) Zick. He grew up and attended school in Pardeeville, WI and after high school, served his country in the U.S. Marine Corp. Morrie’s service was during the Vietnam War, an honor he wore proudly. Being a Marine was a defining characteristic of who Morrie was. He was hardworking, loyal, and tough. On August 6, 1983, he married Connie Miller in Pardeeville and the couple enjoyed 15 years of marriage until her death in 1998. Morrie and Connie enjoyed traveling to Aruba together, going antiquing, and being at their cottage near Princeton, WI. He loved being outdoors – whether it be fishing, hunting, or gardening. Morrie had a notable quote that he said often: “All the world’s problems can be attributed to women or computers.” He enjoyed getting a rise out of the people in his life that he loved. He was a devoted husband who loved his family dearly and he will be missed.
Morrie is survived by: his daughter Deanna (Terrell) Henkel of Green Bay; 3 grandsons; 6 siblings Doug (Vicki) of Johnson Creek, Dolly (Mike) Christenson of Hot Springs Village, AR, Duane of DeForest, Victoria (David) Deboldt of Oxford, William of Sullivan, and Joseph (Aimee) of Jefferson. He is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, wife, brother LeRoy Jr., and his sister Carol Roundy.
