Otto Gustav Frick was born on May 13, 1934, in Verwood, SK. He was the youngest of three children born to Wilhelm and Rosalia Frick. Otto attended school in Verwood. He worked for a time with the Canadian Pacific Railroad. Otto then went on to rent some farmland until he was able to purchase land in the Willow Bunch district. He shared many wonderful years with his long-time companion, Lillian Youngberg. Together many wonderful memories were shared with their neighbors in the district.
