Obituary Please share a memory of Milburn “Skip” to include in a keepsake book for family and friends. View Tribute Book Milburn Lee (Skip) Quick, was born in Hays County, Texas, on February 19, 1935. He went into the arms of our Lord surrounded by his wife and family on January 20, 2023. He was 87 years old. Skip was preceded into the afterlife by his parents, Oley and Lena Faye Quick, brothers Thomas Quick and Dr. Donald Quick, and his sister Peggy Munson. Left to survive his legacy are his wife of 66 years, Carol; son Michael (Carol) Quick of Montgomery, TX; daughters Karen (Jeff) O’Rear of Goliad, TX; Christi (Rob) Wilson of Akumal, Mexico; and Jana (Greg) Dalton of Freeport, TX; grandchildren Ryan (Bayly) Quick, Sarah (Ryan) Austin, Russell Quick, Kaeli (Rusty) Brown, Kolby (Marli) Klaus, Brooke (Robert) Winkler, Tyler (Elizabeth) Conard, Lauren O’Rear, Ashley Wilson, Joseph Wilson, Dara (Zach) Frandsen; 10 great-grandchildren; uncle Joby Connell; and numerous cousins, nephews, and nieces. While growing up, Skipper spent lots of time with his brothers, cousins, and uncles at his grandmother’s home in Campwood, TX. He always loved the Campwood and Barksdale area and would often reminisce about those days. As Skip got older, his activities included calf-roping at rodeos, tooling leather into belts & wallets, dancing with his sweetheart, Carol, and playing baseball. Skip graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in San Antonio in 1954. He worked at Pearl Brewery and attended classes at San Antonio College. He and Carol married in August 1956, at Woodlawn Methodist Church in San Antonio and they moved to Austin, TX, where they worked to put him through college. Skipper graduated with a degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1960. The couple and their 2 year old son, Mike, moved to Corpus Christi, TX, where Skip’s 55-year career in the Oil & Gas Industry began. Skip was a well-respected and highly knowledgeable petroleum engineer throughout South Texas. He was often out in the field making sure the job was done right and loved to talk about the oilfield business. Skip also enjoyed playing golf, going dancing, hunting, visiting the Campwood and Barksdale area for family reunions, listening to good old country music, telling jokes, playing nickel-ante-quarter-limit poker at family gatherings, and jalapenos. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do or fix…he was an exceptionally talented, humorous and intelligent man. Skip and Carol moved to Portland, TX, in 1962 where they raised their 4 children. Even though he worked a lot, he always made sure his family was well taken care of and did his best to make every concert, game, recital, play, contest, award ceremony, and activity his kids were involved in. Skipper cared for his friends, too, helping them out whenever called upon. He was very active in the Portland Jaycees and was the club’s first recipient of the Jaycee Lifetime Senatorship in Junior Chamber International. Skip and Carol were members of the First United Methodist Church in Portland, the Bayshore Dance Club, the International Oilmen’s Golf Association, and Northshore Country Club. After living in Portland for 49 years, Skip and Carol moved to Victoria, TX, to be closer to their children. Skip continued working in Corpus as an independent consultant until the age of 80. A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 28, 2023, at 10:00 am at Grace Funeral Home, 2401 Houston Highway, Victoria, TX, with a reception to be held afterward. Ashes will be interned at a later date.
