Brody Dean Quick

October 02, 1980 ‒ April 06, 2016

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Brody Dean Quick, on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 6, 2016 passed away at Grant Medical Center in Columbus surrounded by his family and comforted by his parents as a result of acute pancreatitis. Brody was 35 years old.

Brody was born in Mount Vernon on October 2, 1980. He was the first child and son of Greg and Connie Quick.

Brody graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 1999 and attended Youngstown State University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in May of 2006. Brody was a Boy Scout, Eagle Scout, past member of Order of the Arrow, and ushered many Ohio State home football games as a Boy Scout. As a young man, Brody was a Mount Vernon News carrier; employee of Neff’s Market, played for the Gray Bumpus City Little League Baseball Championship team and played middle school football. Brody was a store manager for the Kroger Company in Cincinnati. He loved to fish and hunt but got the most enjoyment in taking Nic/Peanut his daughter fishing, on small walks, and being able to spend precious time with his daughter. Brodys’ most important part of his life was being with his daughter Peanut/Nic (Domenica) as he called her.  Nic would take toys and games to Brody’s temporary home at the Laurels of Mount Vernon where they would spend the day together.  Nic would tell her daddy when you get your own place and I come and visit, I will help take care of you, but you still have to play games and toys with me.  Brody and Nic loved going to the movies, having lunch or dinner and spending Father and Daughter time.

Brody’s temporary home was the Laurels of Mount Vernon where he will be missed by many friends. While at the Laurels, Brody was always helping residents or staff.  The staff and the residents were very friendly and helpful to our son.

Brody was a loving and devoted Father, Son, and Brother and will be deeply missed by his entire family.

Brody is survived by his loving and precious daughter, Domenica Marie Quick of 7 years old; parents, Greg and Connie (Geiger) Quick; brother, Cody (Heather Lambert) Quick; maternal grandparents, Marvin and Jan Connell; paternal grandmother, Saundra Thompson, paternal grandmother, Betty Mayham; a special aunt, Deb Shelhorn, many aunts, uncles, and cousins, a special friend and his companion dog, Luna; special friends Lee Cubie and Terri Kunkel.

The family will receive friends from 2 p.m. until the time of the funeral service at 4 p.m. on Monday, April 11, 2016 at the Flowers-Snyder Funeral Home, 619 East High St., Mount Vernon with Pastor Lee Cubie officiating.

We all yearn for a time when death will be no more.

  • I met Brody when my Dad was put in the nursing home Nov. 2014. When I would come to visit Dad I would see Brody’s room at the end of the entry hall. He was just a few rooms down from Dad. Finally one day I went to his room to introduce my self as we Both had the same last name. What a delightful young man he was and very smart and handsome. He told me his story of how he got there and we became friends from there on. When my Dad was moved to another hall I lost track of him for awhile as it was on the other side of the building. Before long he was moved again just down the hall from my Dad. I would see him often as he wheeled his chair past my Dad’s room. He always looked in and smiled and waved. I would see his parents and little dog come to see him and that would cheer him up. I enjoyed seeing his little daughter and her warm and funny laughter that made me smile. You don’t see or hear sweet little ones that often in a nursing home. Will miss Brody!!

  • My prayers and thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. I met Brody when came to to Laurels… He will be forever missed by many of us there… He was a wonderful man caring smart funny. My nights won’t be the same without him there.. May he rest in peace and forever fly high…
    With prayers and love

  • Such sad news. I helped care for Brody at the Laurels and he was such a character. Always joking…. I was hoping for so much more for him and his daughter.
    May he rest in peace and God watch over his precious little girl.
    Prayers for the family.

  • To Brody’s Family we send our deepest sympathy at the loss of your loved one Brody.

    My sons Jay and Jamie Mizer grew up with Brody and were in Scouts with Brody, and being active with the scouts and the school system I grew to know him until he and Jay both graduated from MVHS in 1999. We lost track of him after that.

    I can only begin to imagine the pain you feel. No parent is supposed to bury their child and no small child bury her father.

    All I can do is repeat what many have said here and that is to cherish all the beautiful memories you have had with Brody and don’t let the might have beens that he didn’t get to experience weigh you down. The Lord gave Brody to us for a reason and then decided that his time here has served his purpose. I know we question why some one so young, but that answer will only be revealed to us later when we all join him in heaven.

    Remember he is no longer hurting or suffering. ………. It is only those that are left behind that mourn his loss that are hurting so. There is a period to grieve and cry, but then there is a time to look to the heavens and smile and laugh again because you know that is what Brody would have wanted. Brody was a light that lit up our lives if only but for a short time, but he touched the lives of many and will live on through them.

    May the Lord bless you all, wrap you in his loving arms, and comfort you. God bless you Brody!

    The Mizer Family
    ………Janet, Jay, and Jamie

  • Our family was forever changed due to the birth of Brody. He holds the all time record for first accomplishments. His birth alone, made Connie and Greg first time parents. Darrell & Gertrude Quick had a great grandson for the first time. Mom Ma became a great grandmother for the first time. Saundra became a grandmother for the first time. Bud Jeff and Brian became proud uncles for the first time. I became an aunt for the first time. Brody was the first in his family to graduate from collage. Then several years later he blessed this family again with the birth of his daughter Nic. Connie & Greg became grandparents for the first time. Mom Ma was blessed with the title of Great Great Grandmother for the first time. Saundra became a great grandmother for the first time. Bud Jeff and Brian became great uncles for the first time. Jerrie and I became great aunts for the first time. Cody became an uncle for the first time. Lastly, for the very first time, this family was able to have a portrait taken of five generations due to the birth of Nic. Our family will be forever grateful to Brody, and are proud to give him the award of first accomplishments. Rest in peace Brody, job well done.
