Earl was born October 19, 1919, the son of a German immigrant
father, and a second generation American mother
in Lorraine, Kansas, where he grew up on a farm. He
graduated from Ottawa University at Ottawa, Kansas, attended
Navy Mid-shipmen's school at the University of
Notre Dame near South Bend, Indiana, and became a naval
officer during World War II. Earl served on two troop
ships and on a hospital ship in both the European and
Pacific oceans and earned a number of area ribbons and
battle stars. During his military service, Earl married
Marvel Schroeder from his home church in Lorraine,
Kansas, and she went with him to Oregon and California
and was waiting in Long Beach, California when he returned from overseas.
Earl later attended the University of California and then earned a doctorate at
Arizona State University and became on educator. He was a teacher, an elementary
school principal, a high school principal, and a community college
Dean of Instruction. As a side interest, Earl was a real estate investor. His
generosity from those successful investments determined the location of
Dayspring Methodist Church and created security for the family. Earl was active
in his community as a Kiwanian, in his church choir, on the administration's
board, and a founding president and a longtime board member of the
Dayspring church foundation. He served his alma mater, Ottawa University,
on the Executive committee of the Board of Trustees. He and Marvel did voluntary
visitation at Good Samaritan Hospital and attended numerous elder
hostels. Earl cared deeply for his family and friends and served humanity in
many ways. Earl Schlick is survived by his wife Marvel, son Daryl (Barbara),
Daughter Karen, son Steven (Barb), son Mark (Kim), and many friends. The
Schlick family would like to thank all who have supported them with their
love prayers, and words of comfort in this difficult period of grief. Visitation
will be held at 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 3, 2013 in Green Acres
Mortuary followed by the Funeral Service at Green Acres Chapel
of Light, located at 401 N. Hayden Rd. Scottsdale, AZ 85257. www.greenacresmortuary.net

"Karen and family, Our sympathy to you in the loss of a very accomplished father. What great memories you have. We are remembering you in our prayers. Ron..."
