Dallas Donald Glick was born on August 21, 1928, in Jenera, Ohio. He was the son of Harmon and Esther (Pifer) Glick. A man of faith that developed early, he was baptized and confirmed in St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church. Dallas graduated from Arlington High School, Ohio in 1946. He attended Bluffton College graduating with a Chemistry/Math Degree in 1950. He then began to pursue his passion - medicine. He earned a Doctor of Medicine at the University of Chicago in 1954, served his internship at the University of Pennsylvania and became the first surgical Resident of the Mayo clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He served two years as a Captain in the U.S. Army in Tokyo, Japan. After returning to the states, he returned to finish his residency. Always pursuing excellence as a Doctor and a Surgeon he received his master’s degree in surgery from the University of Minnesota in 1964. He became a Board-Certified Surgeon and was a member of the American College of Surgeons along with the Mayo Clinic Priestly Society.

Dallas settled in Mt. Lake, Minnesota. He married Marjorie Schultz and had 3 children. In 1961, he partnered with Alvin Wiens and opened the Glick and Wiens Clinic in Mt. Lake, Minnesota. This later became the Glick Clinic and remained in Mt. Lake until 1990 before moving to Windom, Minnesota where he practiced another 9 years. As a testament to Dallas as a man and Doctor, his patients and colleagues followed him wherever he practiced.

Throughout his medical career Dallas strove to always be the best Doctor he could. Working long hours, making house calls, continuing to improve his education, and surrounding himself with equally dedicated and talented staff. His patients were always treated generously with his time and talent.

Lake/Windom area and moved to Battle Lake, where he and Lynda settled in at their lake home while they practiced medicine another 4 years at the Battle Lake Clinic. He and Lynda remained in Battle Lake, opening their home to friends and family, enjoying lake life, finding new causes in their community, and living out a well spent life.

Dallas loved being a doctor, a husband, a father, and a friend. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, deer hunting in Wyoming, loved cowboy culture, and relaxing by the lake with friends and family. He will be remembered by those that knew him as a hardworking man, a kind man, a generous man, and a loyal man.

Elizabeth Franz Fast January 25, 1929-July 6, 2024

Elizabeth grew up on her family farm near Delft, Minn., where she was active in her church, went to Carson Township “country school,” met her future husband, and graduated from Mt. Lake High School in 1947.

Here she learned to garden, bake, and sew; as a 4-H-er, her skills led to grand champion prizes and cherished trips to the Minnesota State Fair. She brought her passions to the University of Minnesota, graduating from the College of Home Economics in 1951. She served as a county extension agent and taught public school in Waseca, Tracy, and North Minneapolis before becoming a full-time homemaker, and later office manager for her husband’s dental practice in Madelia.

Liz loved to entertain, and if you knocked on her door, you got invited for dinner. She and Arlie raised their four children in Madelia where she was active in the First United Presbyterian Church, serving as an Elder and chair of the Christian Education Committee. They moved to Bingham Lake in 1980 where they created lifelong memories with their grandchildren. Eleven years ago they moved to the Twin Cities to be near their children and more easily enjoy the Minnesota Orchestra, U of M Landscape Arboretum, and Gophers and Vikings football.

Elizabeth is survived by her husband of nearly 68 years, Arlie R. Fast; children Richard (Jamie), Kathleen, Margaret (Eric Elkin), and Susan (Jeff Teerink); grandchildren Rachel, Anne, Britta, Maria, Peter, Emily, and Ellen; and great-grandchildren Rowdy, Ethan, Owen, and Moriah.
