were aunts, uncles and cousins by the dozens,

Carl was proud to have a part in the construction of Decorah schools, Luther College and surrounding area schools. He enjoyed taking part planning in the business even when his health began to slow him down. He died suddenly at the Winneshiek County Memorial Hospital 3 Jul 1973 at 77 years of age.

It was Carl Vick’s dream that his descendants in the business would continue to give the same high quality service to the community and surrounding area that he had strived for during his lifetime.
