The Legacy of Don Quick
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.
