Wick served in the Korean War from 1950-1952. After returning, he married his sweetheart Yvonne Beach in 1953. They lived in Fargo for a short time until moving to their lifetime home of Carrington.

Wick always had a love of working in the gas station business. First of which was Wheeler Standard and then he co-owned Jim & Wicks and then to Mobil. He finally retired from working while at HE Everson.
