Kenneth Bick

Batchtown |

Kenneth “Spider” Bick, 75, passed away on Wednesday, August 10, 2022, at Mercy Hospital St. Louis. 

Kenny was born on July 6, 1947, in Batchtown, Illinois to the late Carl and Anna (Klaas) Bick. He married Judith “Judy” Sievers on June 16, 1973, at St. Joseph’s Church in Meppen, IL. 

Always an Outdoorsman, Kenny enjoyed hunting and fishing with his friends, family, and dogs by his side. He loved his garden and raised beautiful tomatoes. He retired as a Union Laborer from Morrissey Construction Company in Alton, Illinois. He poured miles of concrete around Calhoun, and he always enjoyed a cold beer. He loved sports and attended as many of his grandkids’ baseball/softball, basketball, and volleyball games as he could. Kenny was a loving husband, a wonderful father and grandfather, a loyal brother, and a hard-working country boy. But, more than anything, he was a great friend. 

Kenny is survived by his wife, Judy, his two children, Jennifer (Mark) Nolte and Derrick (Jan) Bick, and his siblings, Delmar (Barb) Bick, Shirleen (Bick) McCarey, Lindy (Martha) Bick, and Gertrude “Gertie” (Gary) Snyders. He is also survived by his four grandchildren, Ellie Nolte, Cole Bick, Kaela Bick, and Blake Nolte. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, his siblings, Elizabeth “Betty” (Bick) Keeton and Donald “Donny” Bick, and his favorite hunting dog, May.
