Alard "Flick" Wirasnik 1926 - 2011 WINDSOR, VT Alard "Flick" Francis Wirasnik, 84, died at Cedar Hill Healthcare in Windsor Friday evening, Jan. 21, 2011. Flick was born on March 5, 1926, in Selkirk, N.Y., to Charles John and Mary Nellie Priblovits Wirasnik. He was raised and educated in Selkirk and lived in Albany, N.Y., before moving to this area in 1963. He married Pauline Smith on Dec. 12, 1964, and they shared 45 years together until her passing in October 2009. Flick was a member of the Windsor Methodist Church. Flick dealt with farm equipment all his life, working for International Harvester as Territory Manager, J.I. Case as Area Manager in Vermont and New Hampshire and with Hesston Corporation as Territory Manager for all of New England and Ontario, Canada. He is survived by five sons, Norman M. Bridge of Windsor, Steven Bridge of Concord, N.H., Joseph Wirasnik (and wife Shelley) of Hartland, Danny Wirasnik (and wife Sandra) of Bennington, and Tim Wirasnik (and partner Annette) of No. Charleston, N.H.; two daughters, Linda Pierce of Bennington and Sherry Line (and husband Bruce) of Winooski; 12 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Flick was predeceased by his brothers, Charles John Wirasnik, Joseph Wirasnik and William Wirasnik, and his sister Mary Vadney. All those who knew and loved Flick would say that he was a gentlemen, loving and caring Dad, and devoted husband. He loved life and was always the life of the party! Flick enjoyed gardening and fishing and took a lot of pride in everything he did, not to mention the endless hours pruning his raspberries. Flick and Polly enjoyed many years of retirement in Myrtle Beach, S.C., in the winters, where they were known as the founders of the Annual Vermont Day luncheon, a gathering of fellow Vermonters for good food and conversations. They also spent many peaceful summers at their camp on the Connecticut River, then wonderful years at Country Estates, Old Windsor Village and finally Cedar Hill Healthcare. FUNERAL NOTICE: Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. There will be no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cedar Hill Healthcare, 49 Cedar Hill Drive, Windsor, Vt. 05089.
