KERMIT WALLICK Mechanicsville Kermit Wallick, 68, of rural Mechanicsville, conceded his hard-fought battle with cancer in the early hours of Dec. 15, 2020. Per his wishes, Kermit will be cremated and there will be no service. His family will have a Celebration of Life at a later date. Stewart Baxter Funeral & Memorial Services, Mount Vernon, is caring for Kermit and his family. Kermit was born Sept. 11, 1952, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Orin Junior and Barbara (Ferguson) Wallick. He spent his younger years in Iowa and Illinois, finally settling in his dream home in rural Cedar County 35 years ago. Besides his family, Kermit's great loves were hunting, outdoor activities and all things mechanical and automotive. He was a very adept handyman and a perfectionist. Kermit lived a good life on his own terms. He leaves behind to forever miss him his wife of 40 years, Kay; four daughters, Jenny (Steve) Dixon, Nicole (Mike) Mack, Stacey (Mark) Iburg and Wendy (Shane) Bryant; son, Mike LeGrand; sisters, Claudia Wallick, Elisa Wallick and Christine (Glen) Weber; 15 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; and various extended family members and friends. Kermit was preceded in death by his parents, a daughter and three grandchildren. The family would like to thank UnityPoint Hospice for their kindness and guidance through this difficult journey.
