Louis M. "Martin" Quick, age 83, of Sheridan, passed away Friday, July 15, 2016, at Riverview Health in Noblesville. Born Aug. 18, 1932, in Lebanon, he was a son of the now late Orvie L. "Mike" and Fontonell (Clampitt) Quick.
Martin attended Sheridan High School, and proudly served his country in the United States Army. After his military service was complete, he started his career as a technical communications specialist with Western Electric, retiring in 1985.
Martin was a very private man. He was an avid reader. The many years that he spent coaching and umpiring Sheridan Little League allowed him to combine baseball and working with children, two things that held a special place in his heart. Martin loved working outdoors and planting trees.
He loved his family, and especially his grandchildren, very much.
Martin is survived by his three sons, Keith A. Quick of Sheridan, Kelly R. Quick of Cleveland, Ohio, and Kerry D. Quick (Angie) of Sheridan; his daughter, Karla E. Kelleher (Bill) of Noblesville; seven grandchildren, Ruben, Andrew, Minerva, Abie, Eden, John and Grace; and sister-in-law, Patti Quick of Kirklin.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Jesse Nolan Quick and Jon Bill Quick; and his sister-in-law, Anne Quick. On July 23, 2015, Martin lost the love of his life, his wife of nearly 60 years, Phyllis Rebecca (Hoover) Quick. She and Martin were married on March 26, 1955.
A private family burial for Martin and Phyllis will take place at Spencer Cemetery in Sheridan. Pastor George Cooper will officiate.
Martin's family would like for you to help them celebrate his life at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at the Sheridan Church of God, 707 W. 2nd St., Sheridan.
In memory of Martin, help decorate "God's great outdoor sanctuary" by planting a tree, or just go out for a drive with your family and take them for some ice cream.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be presented to MAMA'S Cupboard, 101 E. 2nd St., Sheridan, IN 46069.
