Carl Wickery

Carl Lewis Wickery of Augusta, KS went to be with the Lord on August 26, 2020. Carl was born on November 13, 1941, in Caldwell, KS to Lewis Hughes and Verna Mae (Riley) Wickery. He was raised and received his education in Caldwell, KS, where he graduated in 1961. Following school, he joined the US Army and proudly served his country.

Carl met Linda Sue Maxwell on a blind date. They were married October 23, 1971 in Enid, OK and during the marriage had 4 children. Carl was probably best known in Caldwell as a butcher at Jack Sprague’s  Butcher Shop. He retired from Wal Mart in 2003.

Carl loved visiting Disney World. He always said he felt like a kid while he was there. His favorite rides were Splash Mountain and the Kali River Rapids. He would laugh when everyone got soaked! His favorite day of the week was Sundays. His children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren would gather for good food and playing cards he called this “family day”. He taught his kids and grandkids at a young age to play Pitch so he would always have plenty of partners to choose from.

He is survived by his wife Linda Wickery and their children Misty Rand of Augusta, KS, Scott and his wife Sabrina Wickery of Wichita, KS, Jamie Wickery of Augusta, KS, and Kristy and her husband Eric Worthington of Topeka, KS, his sister Carlene Wickery of Wichita, KS and grandchildren Joshua Wickery, Emma Tisdale, Trinity Tisdale and Riley Wickery of Augusta, KS, Kelli Wickery of Wichita, KS, Ethan Worthington, Jacob Worthington and Gloria Worthington of Topeka, KS.

Thank you for your service to this nation. U.S. Army.

You were more like a brother than an Uncle. You will be missed. I know you're celebrating in Heaven with our family there. Rest in peace. Much love to Linda and the kids.

I’m so sorry for the loss of you father Jamie and your husband Linda. I have great memories of him as well from way back in Jamie’s and my grade school thru high schools days. He was a very sweet caring guy that loved his family deeply and did whatever he could to help take care of them.
My heart hurts for ya’ll as you go on this new journey In life. Please know I’m always here for you Jamie if you need anything! BFF’s for life!❤️

Deepest condolences for the family. I first met Carl at AMCI long term care. Always a smile on his face. Great memory. Prayers of comfort.
