Obituary for Dr. William "Bill" Herbert Gick

Dr. William Herbert Gick, 88, of Oak Ridge, passed away Monday, September 9, 2019 at the Ben Atchley State Veterans Home in Knoxville.
He was born July 8, 1931 in Cleveland, OH; the son of the late John Herbert Gick Jr. and Flor-
ence Louise Gick (Jasielum). The family moved to Oak Ridge in 1945, as part of the top secret Manhattan project. He was a veteran of the Korean War, serving with the U. S. Navy from 1949 to 1953. In 1964 he graduated from Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, MO,
where he earned the degree of Doctor of Chiropractic. After graduating in 1964, Dr. Gick started his practice, Alta Vista Chiropractic. Located initially in Oak Ridge, Dr. Gick later moved his practice to Oliver Springs where he continued to work for the next 46 years.
He was a long-time member of Calvary Baptist Church of Oak Ridge. He enjoyed traveling, cars, fishing, and spending time with his grandson, Hunter. One of his greatest pleasures in life was doing for others, and giving God all the credit for his success.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Dora Jean
Gick (Monroe) who passed away April 10, 2002.
He is survived by sons, John Gick, and wife Joyce of Knoxville, Jeff Gick
and wife Sharyn of Los Gatos, CA, daughter Teresa Sampson and husband
Bryan of Oak Ridge, sister Marty Tidwell of Oak Ridge, and grandson Hunter
Sampson of Hurricane, WV. He counted Dr. and Mrs. David Stanley, and the late David Dunthorn as very special friends.
The family had a graveside service on Saturday, September 21, at Hill Grove
Baptist Church Cemetery in Palestine, West Virginia. Military honors were provided by the U.S. Navy Honor Guard.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, September 26, 2019 from 6-7 PM
at Calvary Baptist Church of Oak Ridge. A Celebration of Dr. Gick’s life will follow at 7 pm with Pastor Steve McDonald officiating. Memorials can be made to the Volunteer State Veterans Honor Guard, PO Box 22122, Knoxville,
