Michael Olin Glick, age 66, of North Hudson, Wisconsin passed away surrounded by his family on Sunday July 19th, 2020 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul after a tough battle with lung disease.   

He was born August 21st, 1953 to William and Marjorie (Orsburn) Glick in Richland Center, WI. He graduated from Parker High School in Janesville and later attended Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kansas. On August 19, 1972, Mike married the love of his life Julie Johnson, and they would be blessed with daughter Katie and son Olin.

As a kid, Mike worked on bicycles, a skill and passion that eventually led him to work on motorcycles and old cars for fun throughout his life. Mike’s love of cars rolled over into his career as an auto transport driver for Allied Auto. It was through transporting cars that he became a voracious collector, collecting hats, pins, and key chains from some of the many stops on the road, as well as at various swap meets. Mike loved animals; he even had a pet squirrel as a kid.   

Mike was also no stranger to smoked meats and a good BBQ. For a number of years he attended the Faith Community Church fishing trip as the cook. He also served as the head usher at Faith and helped the church move to their current location on Carmichael Road. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, shooting, and spending weekends with the family camping at the trailer in Chippewa Falls.

Mike was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, grounded in his faith, who is now experiencing the promises of God.

Mike is survived by his wife, Julie; daughter, Katie (Eric) Fredrickson; son, Olin (Pam) Glick; grandchildren: Nora, Lilia, Ogden, and Henrik; sisters, Pamela Thompson, Patricia (Bill) Cashman. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother-in-law Gaylord Thompson. 

A gathering of family and friends, for Michael, respecting social distancing will be from 2:00-4:00pm Friday July 24th, 2020 at The O’Connell Family Funeral Home in Hudson, 520 South 11th Street, Hudson, WI. 54016. A prayer service will follow the gathering at 4:00 pm at the funeral home. Burial will follow immediately at the Willow River Cemetery. Memorials preferred to The American Lung Association.
