Wilfred “Wick” Larson was born in Foster County on September 19, 1931. He attended and graduated from Juanita High School in 1949.

Wick served in the Korean War from 1950-1952. After returning, he married his sweetheart Yvonne Beach in 1953. They lived in Fargo for a short time until moving to their lifetime home of Carrington. Wick always had a love of working in the gas station business. First of which was Wheeler Standard and then he co-owned Jim & Wicks and then to Mobil. He finally retired from working while at HE Everson. Wick’s best time was visiting with people and he could strike up a conversation with anyone. He always enjoyed and treasured the time he could spend with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Greatest times for Wick were watching wrestling, especially his grandsons, and going fishing. His bride Yvonne passed away in July 2022 and he joined her for a New Year’s celebration in 2023.

He is survived by his daughter, Becky (Dean) Zink; son-in-law, Robert Miller; grandchildren, Kirk (Karrie) Zink, Jennifer (Randy) Volk, Aaron (Stacie) Larson, and Travis Larson; great-grandchildren, Oakly (Kenzie) Zink, Brooklyn (Wyatt) Aberle, Jensyn Zink, Niko Zink, Gannon (Maija Engebretson) Volk, Indya Volk, Jore Volk, Brandon (Nicole) Larson, Parker Larson, and Morgan Larson; great-great-grandchildren, Adeline Aberle, Ellie Larson, and Jackson Larson; sisters, Sandra (Jerome) Eli and Sharon Risgaard; brother, Larry (Debbie) Larson; sisters-in-law, Diana Beach and Birdella Beach; and many nieces and nephews.

Wick is preceded in death by his wife, Yvonne; daughter, Cindy; son, Steve; his parents; sister, Elaine Sampson; and many in-laws.


Wick’s Visitation will be Monday, January 9, 2023 from 9:30AM-10:30AM followed by a Funeral Service at 10:30AM all at Evans Funeral Home, Carrington.

His Burial will take place in the Spring of 2023 at the Carrington Cemetery.
