Dennis Rodney Krick was born June 18, 1946 in Slayton, Minnesota to Roy and Elsie (Heeren) Krick.  He was baptized and confirmed at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Westbrook.  He attended country school through the 8th grade and then went on to graduate from Westbrook High School in 1964.  After graduation, he worked on a ranch in South Dakota for a year, and then returned home to start farming south of Westbrook; a career that he loved doing the remainder of his life.  Denny loved the outdoors and nature.  In his younger days, he raised horses and enjoyed riding them in local parades with his kids, and going on trail rides with the Storden Saddle Tramps.  Elk hunting was another sport he enjoyed, making many trips to Montana with his friends and son.  He also loved going fishing with his grandsons who were by far the greatest joy in his life.  Denny was most proud of raising his children to be hard working, responsible adults.  He will always be remembered for his kind heartedness, ready to help anyone in need.  His friends were very important to him.  Denny loved to have fun, joke, and tease with a twinkle in his eye.

Dennis is survived by the love of his life, LuAnn Jackels; 4 children: Clarinda (Mike) Nelson of Albertville, Adam (Melanie) Krick of Westbrook, Katie (Shaun) Fitzgerald of Minnetonka, and Guy (Jessica) Krick of Westbrook; 6 grandsons: Gabe, Tucker, Reese, Landon, Owen, and Hudson; siblings: Connie (Gary) Messer of Minneapolis, Carolyn Krick of Minneapolis, Nancy (Rodney) Boeck of Westbrook, Janell (Jerry) Hospital of Fairfax, VA, Marcia (Steve) Reed of Lino Lakes, and Karen Krick of Mankato; and last but not least, his 4 legged best friend, Buster.  He is preceded in death by his parents, and brother Roger.

    We want to express to you our most heartfelt sympathy. We just got home from Arkansas so were unable to attend the funeral. Would have been nice to have been able to see the family and extend our condolences personally.

    To the family of Dennis, and LuAnn, my classmate, his sister Nancy and all. Dennis was older than me by a few years, but I remember him as a fun and nice man. I offer my heartfelt sympathies, and love to all.
