OBITUARY ~ JESSE "ALAN" MINNICK

Jesse Alan MINNICK, son of Lellan F. and Iva J. (MAIN) MINNICK, was born December 9, 1937 near Delphos, Iowa.

Alan grew up at Mount Ayr and graduated from Mount Ayr high school in 1955. On December 18, 1956, in Kellerton, Iowa, he married Carolyn LaVon KELLER in a ceremony performed by LaVon's great-grandfather, John K. WHITE.

Alan was a hard-working man, who was intelligent and very mechanical. Alan provided for his family and was a loving husband, dad and grandpa. He loved everything about cars and loved his cherished Ford Mustangs, even naming a couple of them!

Alan was a service manager at multiple John Deere dealerships. He retired from Pella Windows at Shenandoah making custom windows. He would bring home the scraps of wood and made several cherished cabinets for the boys and their toys. In addition to the cabinets, he made furniture, baby cradles and many other heirlooms made out of wood. He loved wood-working and his creations will be treasured by many.

Alan passed away February 4, 2013 at Mary Greeley Medical Center in Ames, Iowa.
