Sam was born March 10, 1968, to Melvin and Zanie (Friedrich) Quick. Sam graduated in 1986 from Odessa High School. While he currently worked at Calton Cabinets, as a carpenter, his true passion was working with animals as a veterinarian tech for Odessa Animal Clinic. Sam was an eagle scout when he was younger. Sam was an avid Chiefs and Mizzou fan. Sam's love for the outdoors was evident in his fondness for spending time on the lake, relaxing on the beach, and casting a fishing line into the water. Sam could make friends with anyone in a room. One of Sam's greatest joys in life was spending time with his grandchildren, nieces, and nephews who affectionately referred to him as "Skunkcle."

 

Sam is survived by his wife of 24 loving years, Barbara Ann (Allen) Quick; his father, Melvin Quick; two children, Erika (Jordan) Springer of Blue Springs, MO, Chaz (Jilliane David) Quick of Blue Springs, MO; six grandchildren, Claire Springer, Braxton Springer, Baby Springer (2024), Lincoln Quick, Violet Quick, and Noah Buckner; one sister, Theresa Crosby; four brothers, Melvin (Rose) Quick, Ed (Jackie) Quick, Lowell Quick, Peter Quick.  Also his outlaws include; sister in laws, Vickie (Rick) Barker, Karla (Mike) Jones, and Sandy (Aaron) Pryor; two brothers-in-laws, Mike (Janet) Gamblin, and Bruce Gamblin; and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. 

 

Sam was preceded in death by his mother Zanie Quick and his father and mother-in-law James and Carol Allen.
