Samuel Mick Sr. Obituary

Samuel Lawrence Mick Sr. passed at approximately 1:48pm on Monday January 8th, 2024 at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center. He was born June 9th, 1938 in Denver, Colorado, one of 6 children born to Arley Mick and Nelle Flemming. In 1954 he fell in love with and married Sandra Brady who lived in the same neighborhood. They had three children: Vikki, Kelly, and Sam Jr. Sam Sr. supported his family by laying marble flooring and worked on large projects including Stapleton Airport and the Air Force Academy. In 1968, Sam moved his family to Black Forest, CO where he and his two brothers started Precision Plumbing & Heating.

In the early 70s, Sam Sr. re-married and became husband to Eleanor Mundy and stepfather to Greg, Debbie, and Kim Mundy. Soon after the family relocated to Fort Collins, CO where he opened Mick Heating & Sheet Metal and bought a 120-acre ranch. He successfully managed this business and property for 20 years before he moved to Wilcox, Arizona with his wife Eleanor where he bought an apple orchard.

Sam moved to back to Black Forest in the early 1990s and restarted his heating business, doing residential heating for his son, Sam Jr, and other contractors in the Black Forest area. Sam Sr. loved hosting horseshoe tournaments, but he found his peace in fishing and would often go fishing with his older brother, Jim.

When his wife, Eleanor passed away in 2001, Sam decided to move to be closer to his brother, Jim, in Penrose, CO. They continued to enjoy fishing together, particularly at Brush Hollow Reservoir. Jim, his last living brother, passed in 2015, and Sam moved to Salida, CO to be closer to his son, Sam Jr. Through his last years, Sam Sr. had a deep passion for sports. He loved watching baseball and football with his son, Sam Jr.

He lived an honest, hard-working life, and cared deeply about his children, stepchildren, brothers and sister, and grandchildren. Sam Sr. took care of himself all the way to the end. He was a good cook and could whip up some mean eggs and a good pot of coffee. Sam’s family and friends, will remember him as one of the kindest men, always flashing a smile or laughing, even when times were tough. He will be missed.

A celebration of life will be hosted at a future date.
