Joseph Patrick Chick, 46, St. Augustine, Fla., formerly of Gillette, Wyo., passed away on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, surrounded by his family at the Bailey Center for Caring. 

He was born on Jan. 5, 1972, in Lakewood, Ohio, the son of John and (the late) Donna Chick. Over the years, Joseph resided in St. Joseph, Mo., and Gillette, and lived the last three years of his life in St. Augustine. Joseph worked many years as an accomplished machinist and most recently as a personal trainer. Joseph was physically and spiritually strong, yet such a gentle soul.

Joseph enjoyed a rich spiritual and social life with his friends at Fruit Cove Baptist Church in St. Johns, Fla. Joseph lived life with a servant’s heart, whether it was through mission trips to Guatemala and Papua New Guinea, helping his many friends with physical tasks, or opening up his personal training sessions with a devotion. He loved spending time with friends and family, especially with his three brothers and many nephews and nieces. 

To the very end, Joseph taught those around him through love and faith. When he received news that his illness was terminal, he exclaimed, “I’m almost home!” Even through pain and suffering, he embraced his journey to meet his Heavenly Father. 

He is survived by his father, John D. (Joan) Chick of Sunrise Beach, Mo.; three brothers, John (Julie) Chick and James (Traci) Chick, both of Gillette, and David (Tina) Chick, Newcastle, Wyo.; his aunt, Verna Austin; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, at New Life Gillette Church in Gillette. Interment will take place in Brookfield, Mo., at a later date.
