How Did We Do?

Wade Elwood Davick, 83 of Winona, died Thursday, June 6th, 2019 at Mayo Clinic Hospital - Rochester, St.Mary's Campus.

Wade was born April 19th in Minot, ND to Carl and Esther (Schlenker) Davick. He graduated from Minot Model High School and furthered his education at St.Olaf College in Northfield before attending Luther Seminary. He served in the United States Naval Reserves for 14 years as a chaplain. Wade married Pamela Bungum in Rochester, MN on August 2, 1992.

Wade ministered parishes in southwestern North Dakota before returning to his beloved childhood church, First Lutheran in Minot, where he was called to be the directing pastor. Eventually, he moved to Minnesota and served as as an interim pastor in Hayfield and West Concord before Central Lutheran in Winona issued him a letter of call. He retired from Central in 2002 and immediately began as interim at Highland Prairie and Elstad Lutheran churches. After ten years, Wade retired once again, although he remained active in ministry-supply preaching, performing weddings and funerals, and eventually became known as "Rent-a-Rev" in the Winona area.

Wade was active until the end of his life, he enjoyed tap dancing, fly fishing, downhill skiing, traveling, playing the piano and wood carving. He also enjoyed volunteering with elementary children and at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.

Wade embraced his Scandinavian Heritage, was an accomplished wood carver and passionate about celebrating Norwegian traditions. Wade was an active member of Rotary International throughout his adult life.

At the heart and soul of Wade Davick was family. He was a devoted father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and husband.

He is survived by his wife, Pam; beloved dogs, Thor and Loki; children, Brad(Carline)Davick, of South Bend, IN, Lisa Sartwell of Minneapolis, Carl(Kym) of Madison, WI and their mother, Dorene Davick of Bloomington; Nathan Wohlfeil(Karla) of Winona; grandchildren, Megan, Kara, Larson, Anika, Soren and Elizabeth, 7 great-grandchildren, and sister, Connie Ede of Minnetonka.

He was preceded in death by his parents and infant son, Bruce.

Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, June 14 at Central Lutheran Church-Winona. The Reverends Brad Davick and Michael Short will be officiating. Visitations will be 4-7 p.m., Thursday, June 13, at Hoff Celebration of Life Center-Goodview, and one hour prior to the service on Friday at Central.

Peace to Pam and Wade's family. Wade's wisdom, compassion, light heartedness, storytelling, and hospitable heart, endeared him to many at CL Church. It was also refreshing to witness his sweet appreciations of Pam. ~ "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."

Wade was one of my favorite people period. He always had time for me and to visit with me about my son Thomas. He was truly a treasure.

My sincere condolences to Pam and the Davick Family Members upon Wade's death.I had the privilege of serving as an Interim Pastor at Central LC in Winona when Wade came upon the scene. It was great to have him as a colleague for several months and we learned about approaches to ministry from each other. It was truly a blessing to work alongside him. God's comfort and peace to you as you grieve the loss of such a dynamic man. Rest in Peace, Wade.
