UNICK, Francis James left us November 24, 2001 to be with his wife ILeen Lloyd Unick, his wife of 56 years. Together, they raised their 3 children at Neptune Beach, in a home filled with love, laughter and discipline. Francis was born February 25, 1920 to Jesse James Unick and Matilda Louise Reohrich in Ferndale, WA. A 1938 graduate of Ferndale High School, Francis was united in marriage a year later, May 12, 1939 to ILeen. Francis was in the 3 C's (Civil Conservation Core) and worked at the Old Furniture Factory along with logging and commercial fishing. In his youth he played fiddle for the Rocky Mountaineers. A Navy Veteran of WWll, he served in the South Pacific on the Naval Repair Ship USS Marcab as an Electrician's Mate. With his return, he and lLeen started their family, son, Robert Unick, daughter, Nancy Unick Baum and son, James Unick were added to the mix. Francis then was employed by Bellingham Shipyard and United Boat Builders (Uniflite) from which he retired. A more than avid hunter, he had the patience of "Job" when it came to stalking his quarry. A mentor to many, he loved to pass on many of his outdoor skills, his love of the saltwater and the bounty that it gave a man was his passion. Not seeing him in hunting camp will leave a hole in our heart. Good hunting Dad. He is survived by sons, Robert and wife Diane, James and wife Cathie, all of Ferndale; daughter Nancy and husband Jim Baum of Lodi, CA; 8 grandchildren and 8 great- grandchildren; brother Milton Unick of Ferndale; sisters, Lucille Andersen of Bellingham, and Laurilee Anderson of Poulsbo; numerous nieces and nephews.
