Jason Larick

Jason Bruce Larick, 53, of Carey, passed away unexpectedly at Riverside Methodist Hospital on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2024.
Jason was born in Upper Sandusky, on Feb. 27, 1970, to Franklin Bruce and Vickie (Vehrs) Larick. Jason grew up in Upper Sandusky, and graduated from Upper Sandusky High School in 1989. While in school, Jason excelled as an athlete. Basketball and baseball were his favorites and his dad was his baseball coach while growing up.
After high school, Jason attended Owens Community College and The Ohio Police Academy. Jason became a part-time police officer in Carey in 1993 and proudly served the Carey community as a full-time officer and lieutenant until his retirement in 2017.
One fateful night while in Findlay, Samantha Jones caught Jason’s eye and shortly after the two were married on June 19, 1999. Together Jason and Sam enjoyed spending time at Myrtle Beach, the Outer Banks and Pigeon Forge. Having a need for speed, Jason loved Ford Mustangs and had over 15 throughout the years. He and Sam spent countless hours at car shows and made yearly trips to the Mustang car show in Somerset, Ky.
Jason enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He could often be found fishing with his father-in-law or on the golf course with Dave Fletcher. While relaxing at home, he was sure to be watching the Buckeyes play, rooting on the Broncos or enjoying a Ford NASCAR race.
Although Jason had a strong type-A personality and wanted everything planned to a T, he was the life of any party and was the first person to help in a time of need. He was always ready for an adventure and had a story to tell.
Jason will be missed by his wife, Samantha Larick; mother, Vicki Larick; brother, Ben Larick; mother- and father-in-law, Becky and Sam Jones; sisters-in-law, Reva (Barry) Waltz and Leah Jones; nieces, Hayley, Evelyn and Natalie Waltz; nephew, Mason (Kelsey) Waltz; grand-nieces, Eleanore and Emersyn; uncle, Eric (Tiffiny) Vehrs; aunt, Becky Jerew; and best friend and canine companion, Champ.
Jason was preceded in death by his father, Franklin B. Larick.
Visitation will be held at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, Carey, Monday, Feb. 5, from 3-7 p.m. On Tuesday, Feb. 6, at 1 p.m., the Rev. Tom Merrill, OFM Conv., will offer a funeral liturgy at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Spring Grove Cemetery, Carey.
