Gerald Vick

February 20, 1942 - November 16, 2020

Gerald Vick

Gerald Ray Vick, 78, passed away peacefully on November 16, 2020 as his wife of fifty-eight years was by his side. Gerald was born February 20, 1942, in Beaumont, to Ray and Lennie Lambert Vick.

He grew up in Tyrrell Park. Some of his favorite past times were riding horses and motorcycles, fishing and boating, and bird watching. In 1968 he earned his Solo Flight License. He served in the Army National Guard for eleven years and worked as a master machinist for over fifty years. Everything Gerald did, he did with excellence. In his latter years, you would find him sharing stories with friends at the Waffle House or enjoying the scenery and excitement at the boat dock. He was funny, quick with a joke, always the life of the party, and never met a stranger. 

Gerald is survived by his wife, Jo Vick; son, Kenny Vick; daughter, Alma Rash and her husband, Randy; siblings, Ray, Jr. and Sachi Vick; Frank and Debra Vick; Jack and Melva Vick; Wanda and Phil Brooks; Paul Vick; Kim and John Timberlake; grandchildren, Brooke Toups, Erik Toups, and Christopher Wall; sister-in-law, Patricia Lopez, his favorite niece and nephew, Rhonda and Rodney Robichau, with numerous others.

He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents. 

A private family committal was held for Mr. Vick through Broussard’s Crematorium, under the direction of Broussard’s, 2000 McFaddin Avenue, Beaumont.

    Gerald never met a stranger and all were welcomed into his and Jo’s circle of friends. We have wonderful memories of boating together on the Neches River. Love and prayers to Jo, Kenny, and Alma.

    I will miss you my friend, I had the pleasure of working with him for several years, I met Jo and Vick at Kema and got them to ride the train for the first time ever, we had a blast. You will be missed by a ton of friends. I always took photos of my food at the Flying Dutchman and sent it to him, he introduced that restaurant and still go there. Rest in peace my brother in arms, sad to see Veterans go. Love you Vick.
