Timothy Jay Frick was born in Falls Creek on July 6, 1940, to Jack F. Frick and Lucille W. Cavanaugh Frick, as their first child. He was born in the home of his parental grandparents, Homer Frick and Laura Booher Frick.
Tim's early life, in Rouseville, Pa., and Oil City, Pa., centered on playing Little League baseball (at the 'Car Barns' & Hasson Heights) and Scouting.
Tim attended grammar school in Rouseville and high school in Oil City. Tim attended Oil City and St. Joseph's High School. He continued to stay in touch with St. Joe's (later to become Venango Christian) through newsletters and supported them through yearly contributions.
Tim attempted to join the military, after high school graduation. He tried two different times to enlist, but was 'too light-weight' to meet the weight minimums, even though he made himself sick eating bananas.
Tim's professional life consisted of 33 years in the Airline Industry with the same airline. Tim took a correspondence course in 1959, after not being able to get in to the military. He went to Kansas City, Mo., for his formal training. Once completed, he attempted to find work with any airline, preferably in New York City, to no avail.
Tim's step-father, Jim Slike, found Tim his first airline job in Jamestown, N.Y., with Allegheny Airlines (later to become US Air). Tim followed that up with jobs in Pittsburgh, Pa., Washington, D.C., DuBois and finally in Orlando, Fla., in 1980, where he worked for the last 13 years of his airline career. Also, Tim was able, because of his seniority with US Air, to find jobs for two of his younger brothers, Dan and Art, who both had long-term careers with US Air. Tim retired at 53 in 1993.
During Tim's Airline Industry career, he became connected to NASCAR. Tim assisted many NASCAR owners and drivers in making their flight arrangements to match their NASCAR events. Because of this connection, he also got Dan and Art 'into' NASCAR, where they both enjoyed employment and the racing life for many years.
Tim had many dogs over his years in Florida, primarily Chihuahua (Chiwawa) dogs. He had a great passion for them and treated them like his 'kids'. He is survived by Taz and Jack.
Tim is survived by his three children: Scott Frick, Sue Frick, and Emily Frick Eastham; two grandchildren, Ezra Frick and Landon Eastham; his mother, Lucille Frick Slike; his sister, MaryJane Slike Rappelye; and his brothers, William Frick, Joseph Frick, Arthur Slike, Christopher Slike, Steven Slike and Thomas Slike. Two brothers preceded Tim, Michael Slike died in 2001 and Daniel Slike died in 2009.
