Paul was born on November 20, 1960 in St. Paul, son of Helmer “Sam” and Velma (Waisanen) Wick.  He grew up and received his education in Grand Rapids and continued his education at the Duluth Business University in Duluth. He was united in marriage with Lonna Walls of Grand Rapids in 1983, became a father with the birth of their son, Adam, and worked as a banker in the Brainerd area. He moved to Staples, where he married Christie Berg of Crosby in 1994, was blessed with their sons, Jordan and Ryan, and worked at Security State Bank, later Unity Bank.

He was currently employed as vice-president at Star Bank in Bertha.

Paul was a loving husband, proud father, devoted brother and giving friend.  He loved deeply and gave with every ounce of his heart. He had a one-of-a-kind sense of humor and a special way of making people laugh. He enjoyed mowing the lawn and yard work, playing and watching all sports, boating, fishing and hunting, sitting by the fire and spending time at the Wick Family cabin ‘up north’. 

Survivors include his wife, Lisa Wick of Staples; three children, Adam (Ashley) Wick of Farmington, Jordan Wick of St. Paul, Ryan Wick of Staples; four stepchildren, Alyssa (Jared) Peterson of Savage, Brandon (Chelsea) Haglin of Williston, ND, Karlee (Matthew) Chenoweth of Browerville and Jordan Haglin of Nashville, TN; eight grandchildren, Kendra, Kyla, Ezekiel, Elena, Jaymee, Ameara, Lydia, and Devin; siblings, Cathy (Terry) Madsen of Grand Rapids and Keith Wick of Grand Rapids; and many nieces and nephews.
