Karl Harvey Frick, 80, Green Cove Springs, Fla.

Karl Harvey Frick, 80, of Green Cove Springs, FL passed away Tuesday, October 20, 2020. Karl was born in Huntingburg, Indiana to the late Harold Frick and Leota Helmrich Frick and moved to Florida 35 years ago and had been a resident of Green Cove Springs for the past 20 years. He was one of 15 siblings who grew up working on the family farm. His father owned the local hardware store, coal mine, and trucking company so he spent many years working at each of those places, too. He most recently worked as a truck driver and “moved the Earth."

Karl had a green thumb and enjoyed working in the garden. He could grow any kind of plant from a cutting. Karl was a fan of the Indiana Hoosier basketball team, a NASCAR follower, and liked collecting coins. His cockatiel, Claire, was a constant companion. Most of all, Karl loved his kids.

Karl was preceded in death by his parents and 10 of his siblings. He is survived by three sons, Kelly (Debbie) Frick, Lindsae Frick, and Ryan (Robin) Frick; one daughter, Alicia (Troy) Watson; one brother, Marvin Frick; three sisters, Marie Siebert, Bev Giesler, and Brenda Gross; the mother of his children, Carol Nord; five grandchildren, Tyler Watson, Meaghan Frick, Taylor Powers, Jessica Powers, and Kierra Frick; and four greatgrandchildren, Tanner Watson, Cooper Powers, Gracey Powers, and Vayda Watson.
