Let the family know you are thinking of them Jesse Flick was born June 12,1939, in Cuzco, Indiana, (Dubois County), and entered eternal life on September 13, 2023. Visitation will be held from 6-7 p.m. on Friday, September 15th at Lunn’s Colonial Funeral Home. Funeral service will be held at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Wichita Falls, at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, September 16th, with Rev.

Eric Stinnette, of St. Paul Lutheran Church Officiating, assisted by Rev. Michael Cody of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Iowa Park. Graveside service and interment will immediately follow at Crestview Memorial Park in Wichita Falls, Texas, under the direction of Lunn’s Colonial Funeral Home. Although he was born in Indiana, Jesse always said he came to Texas as soon as he could.

He married the love of his life, Norma Kaiser Flick on December 29, 1956. They enjoyed 62 wonderful years of marriage until Norma preceded him in death on November 13, 2018. Jesse was a farmer, rancher, caretaker of God’s creation, and beloved Daddy to his three daughters. Jesse attributed his many blessings in life to God, who placed special people in his life, combined with hard work, grit, integrity, and “doing right” by his fellow man.

He believed your handshake and your word must be your bond. He lived by that every day. Jesse began working for Harry Marten as a young man and they became business partners in 1965, forming Marten & Flick Conservation Contractors, and Marten & Flick Farms. That successful business partnership and friendship was a lifetime commitment, only ending at the passing of his partner, Harry, in 2007.

Jesse then paid forward the same opportunity he was provided by forming a business partnership with James Dunsmore. Dunsmore & Flick Conservation Contractors continued from 2007 until today, helping farmers and ranchers maintain their land. Jesse’s daughters have always referred to James as the brother they never had, as he and his wife Jackie play prominent roles in their lives. Jesse served his community by donating his time, talents and work to entities such as the Wichita County Water District Board, by donating to the North Texas Rehab Center Auctions, and supporting FFA projects and programs. He was a prominent wheat farmer for many years in Wichita, Archer, and Clay Counties and raised cattle in Wichita and Archer counties.

He loved the Lord, his family, his friends, and God’s creation; and worked to build strong bonds with family, friends, and businessmen. He was always willing to give a hand up to those who struggled. Jesse became a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in 1956, serving in many ways over the years including usher, campground facility upkeep, assistance with youth campouts, live nativity, Christmas parade floats, caroling to shut-ins, church service videographer, and served as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Jesse is survived by 3 daughters and their husbands, Lynette and Jim Meisel of Lawton, OK; Darla and Ben Inglish of Iowa Park; and Emilie and Tim Sherrod of Stephenville, Texas.

Grandchildren Janis Lawyer of Lawton, Oklahoma; CPT Trent Meisel, who is currently serving in the United States Air Force in South Korea; Brady Inglish of Boise, Idaho; Amber Clayton and husband MAJ Brian Clayton of Troy, Michigan; and twins Ty and Tate Sherrod of Denton, Texas. He is also survived by the highlights of his life, his great grand daughters Annistyn Lawyer, triplets Viviyn Lawyer, Suttyn Lawyer, Karsyn Lawyer, and great grandson Jesse Clayton. Jesse is survived by one brother, Dwight Flick and wife Lucille of Waco, Nebraska; sisters-in-law Ruth Rathgeber of Wichita Falls; Mary McLain, Pam Harmon and husband Scot of Indiana, and brothers-in-law Darrell Kaiser and wife Lynn Ann, and John Kaiser of Indiana, and a host of dearly loved nieces and nephews. In addition to his wife, Norma, Jesse was preceded in death by his parents Preston and Louella Flick, brothers Dwayne Flick and wife Dorothy, Carrol Flick and wife Sue— all of Indiana; and his beloved sister Wanita Braband (his Petunia) and her husband, Johnnie Braband, of Hempstead, TX; brothers-in-law, Calvin Rathgeber, Terry McLain, and sister-in-law Linda Kaiser, and one great grand daughter, Haivyn Lawyer. The family wishes to extend special thanks and appreciation to his many caregivers from Healing Hands Healthcare and Hospice, the staff of the Evergreen Unit at House of Hope, as well as Dr.

Robert Parkey, and Nurse Practitioner Jodi Robinson, and his very dear long-time home health aide, Christina “Katrina” Smith. Special thanks also to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church for the use of their facilities. The family requests that if desired, memorials be made to St. Paul Lutheran Church of Wichita Falls, or to the Jesse Flick Memorial FFA Student Scholarship Fund which is being established by his daughters for the Iowa Park FFA Program, c/o First Bank of Iowa Park, which will allow their father’s legacy to provide continued support to agriculture and agribusiness. Condolences may be sent to the family at
