Obituary

Robert (Bob) Lee Frick, 84, of Greeley, CO, passed away on December 20, 2020 at North Colorado Medical Center. Surrounded by his family via FaceTime, Bob was able to say his goodbyes, and was prepared to meet up with his wife Jane, whom he had lost 3 years earlier.
Bob was born on February 22, 1936 in Bridgeport, NE to parents Jake Jr. and Emma (Shuler) Frick. Bob married Loretta Jane Reichert on March 4, 1956 in Bayard, NE. Obliged and dignified to have served his country, Bob enlisted in the US Army in January 1955, and served in the Army Corps of Engineers as heavy equipment operator, heavy equipment mechanic and company clerk. He and Jane traveled together to Missouri and Alaska while serving in the military until 1958, honorably discharged with the rank of Corporal.
Bob and Jane raised their four children, Wes, Cindy, Colleen and Gary, while following the oilfield booms in Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado. They moved to Greeley, CO March 1972, where they have resided for the past 48 years. Bob and his oldest brother Jim, co-owned F & F Dozer Service, Inc from 1968 to 1995, and worked side-by-side with their kids over the years.
Bob was a man of great integrity and work ethic. He enjoyed woodworking, building, and repairing anything mechanical, and always had an ongoing project to keep himself active and busy. Bob enjoyed the outdoors - fishing and camping; and relished their trips to Central City and Las Vegas with his wife and friends. He also liked growing hot peppers, getting hotter ones every year, and making his own salsa and dried spices. Bob was also a homemade candy enthusiast.
Bob loved his two puppies, Buffy and Lucky, who supplied comfort and companionship, especially during this perplexing and lonely period of COVID-19. One of Bob’s greatest joys was being a Grandfather to his wonderful grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his son Wesley (Vanessa) Frick of New Braunfels, TX; daughters Cindy (Gary) Nation and Colleen (Randy) Premer of Greeley, CO; niece (whom they raised) Becky (Scott) Hofer of Broomfield, CO; sister Shirley Watson of Scottsbluff, NE; brother Jack Frick of NY; grandchildren, Tyler, Chelsea, and Joshua Frick, Matt and Tim (Sarah) Hartline; Kristi (Kenny) Stone, Tiffany (Craig) Troxell, Jordan (Brandy) Nation; Angie (Tim) Armstrong; Jacob and Nick Hofer; great-grandchildren, Peter, Lucas and Jacob Hartline; Noah and Riley Stone, Emerson and Taylor Troxell, Ellie, Haley and Sydney Nation; Sarah and Nancy Armstrong, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents; wife Jane and youngest son Gary; brothers James, George and Donald; sisters, Dorothy and Janice.

Dad, I’d love for you to know it’s been a blessing to be part of your family. Christmas 2005, I met your family for the very first time. It was very refreshing to be welcomed with open arms. This Cajun from South Louisiana had never had a White Christmas, and I’m sure I was a like a little kid around all that snow. Thanks for not making too much fun of me 😉. I appreciate your family accepting my boys and parents as yours as well.

When I look at Wes, I see a man who has so much admiration and respect for you. He has always spoken of you as his mentor and I can see why. You have taught him so much and he is following in your footsteps mentoring younger people on the job site, his kids, my boys and grandkids.

You will be missed by many, especially your loving family and friends. I will cherish the memories I had with you for the rest of my life. Rest In Peace my friend. Love, Vanessa
