Kiick celebrates 100
John C. Kiick celebrated his 100th birthday July 27 with a drop-in party surrounded by his family and friends at Ephrata Manor.
Born July 27, 1913, in Hanover, he moved to Ephrata at age 12. John played on the first football team of Ephrata High and was captain of the basketball team his senior year. Graduating in 1932, he continued his education by taking accounting classes. He married his high school sweetheart in 1940 and they had two children, Lorna and Dennis.
During the war years, he worked at Armstrong.
In 1945, he went to work at Verties Store, a women’s clothing store started by his wife. Verties closed after 54 years of business in 1986 when John retired at the age of 73.
Seventeen years after the passing of his first wife, John married Jane Tshudy, a school teacher in the Conestoga Valley School District. Jane passed away in 2006.
John has traveled extensively throughout his life.
Celebrating with him were his two children, five grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, his step son, three step grandsons and six step grandchildren.
His thoughts on life – "If you can do something that you enjoy, do it. Life is too short to wait. And live and experience life before you marry."
