George W. Glick


George William Glick, 76, of Columbus, passed away Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at the Aventura Hospital and Medical Center Emergency Room in Aventura, Florida as the result of an accident.

Mr. Glick retired from Cummins Engine Co. in 2001 after 36 years of service.

Mr. Glick was of Christian faith and was baptized in 1971.

He spent much of his time on his childhood homestead, “the hill house.”

He was able to fix any and everything, no job was ever too big for him to tackle.

He was a life-long learner and many people were inspired by his example.

He was a proud supporter of his grandchildren; where he enjoyed his favorite snack, popcorn.

A true example of actions speak louder than words, he was there. Even though he was a man of few words, he found great joy and experienced immense pride in his legacy and greatest love, his family.

The funeral will be conducted at 10 a.m. Monday at Barkes, Weaver & Glick Funeral Home on Washington Street with Chuck Coleman officiating. Family and friends may call from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. Private burial will be at Flat Rock Cemetery in Flat Rock, Indiana.

Memorial contributions may be made to Community Church of Columbus, Our Hospice of South Central Indiana or the Salvation Army.
