August 07, 1940 – July 09, 2021
Don Quick, age 80 of Round Rock, passed peacefully on July 9, 2021, after an unexpected complication with chemotherapy treatments for a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis. Until the very end, he remained a good patient, joking with the nurses and being more concerned for his family and friends than himself.
Don was born on August 7, 1940, in Uvalde, Texas, to Eugene Olaf Quick and Lillian Marjorie (Beaumont) Quick. The Quick family were early settlers of the Round Rock area, with Don’s grandfather Oscar Edward Quick immigrating from Sweden in 1885, buying farm property on Old Settlers Blvd and raising a large family with his wife Carolina Ericsson Quick. Don’s father Eugene returned to Round Rock and owned Quick Pharmacy for 50 years, an icon on Main Street. Don followed in this tradition with his real estate company, Don Quick & Associates, achieving 50 years in service to the community.

Remembering Don’s Impact on Our Community
Other than being one of the best human beings I have ever met, Don had a passion not only for the business he built, but for all of Round Rock that is unparalleled.
Mr. Quick has been a staple in proving what community leaders are all about. He gives generously back to his community and is a wonderful person to do business with.
Say his name and you will more often than not hear, “Oh, I see those signs EVERYWHERE!”. But the man behind the sign was among the kindest and most humble I have ever known. He was a living legend who has helped to build this city into the thriving community it is today through his work over the last 50 plus years in the real estate industry.
It is a fact that Round Rock would not be the city it is today without Don’s influence over his life and career in real estate. As a person, Don is one of the most compassionate and thoughtful people I have ever met.
Don Quick is the face of Round Rock real estate and business.
