Hyrum "HY" Schick, Jr.

Hyrum "HY" Schick, Jr.


Hyrum Schick, Jr. passed away peacefully and joyfully in his home in Lake Helen, Florida on September 1, 2023 at the age of 68, when he was reunited with his loving parents, grandparents, brother (Chuck), niece (Carol), and his beloved son (Kevin), along with many others who were waiting for him to return home. He was born to Hyrum Schick, Sr. and Carol F. Schick on June 3, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Hy was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and he had a strong testimony of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His Atonement for all mankind. He served in many different callings in the Church, but his favorite calling was Primary Teacher because he loved teaching young children about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

He graduated from West High School in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1973. Shortly thereafter, he enlisted in the United States Air Force. Even though he was never deployed to Vietnam, he proudly served during the Vietnam era and for a total of 4 years (from 1973-1977). Most of that time, he was stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. He loved serving God and Country.

After his time in the military, he attended college at Daytona Beach Community College. He later attended UCF (University of Central Florida), where he graduated in 1985. He then spent most of his career working for Green Thumb / Experience Works, where he helped to improve the lives of older people through training, community service, and employment.

He had impeccable penmanship (writing in all capital, block letters) and a photographic memory. He was able to remember many significant dates, facts, and historical events, and he loved talking to others about them. He was always very precise in any of his numerical calculations. For example, he would want everyone to know that he passed away just 2 days shy of reaching the age of 68 and a quarter. He also loved playing board games (especially the game of Risk and the game of Catan) and spending time with his family members and friends.

Hy is survived by his siblings: April (Lowell) Penrod, Christopher (Robin) Schick, and Marlana Schick; by his children: Amy Dolce, Hyrum (“Jay”) Schick III, and Tina Schick; by his stepchildren: Joao Santa-Rita, Saum Eslami, Sara Eslami, and Sina Eslami (all of whom he was sealed to in the temple); by his grandchildren: Aidan Schick and Laurel Barnett (both of whom he helped raise), in addition to 8 other grandchildren; and by 5 nieces and 2 nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, a brother, a son, and a niece.

The funeral service will be held on Tuesday, September 26, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at the DeLand Ward meetinghouse (of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) located at 1345 Aquarius Ave., DeLand, Florida. A viewing will be held on Monday, September 25, 2023 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. at the Lankford Funeral Home located at 220 E New York Ave., DeLand, Florida.

Interment will follow the funeral service at the Oakdale Cemetery, located at 800 N Clara Ave., DeLand, Florida.
