David Eric Flick II

May 14, 1974 – March 1, 2019


David Eric Flick II, 44, of Carmel, Indiana sailed beyond the sunset on March 1, 2019. David was born on May 14, 1974 to David Flick and Suzanne (Estes) Lyon in Atwater, California.


Answering a call to service, David entered the United States Navy at 38 years old and continually received the highest honors and recognition for superior performance. He earned the rank of Quartermaster 1st Class Petty Officer after only a few years of service. David was awarded multiple honors and letters of commendation throughout his short but dedicated career, including six Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals for professional achievement and superior performance. In 2016, he was honored to be named both Naval Reserve Command Career Counselor of the Year and Regional Junior Sailor of the Year.


After earning a Bachelor’s degree in the Arts from Indiana University (Dean’s List) in 2014, David continued his education and received a Masters Degree in Global Technology and Development from Arizona State University. Through his tireless studies, he earned and achieved membership in Phi Kappa Phi Academics Honor Society and Salute Military Academic Honor Society, Alpha Tier. He was incredibly honored to be chosen as the Convocation Speaker at graduation. David was especially proud to lead The Cyprus Opportunity, a scalable, data-driven program addressing intergenerational education solutions within environments of conflict and disparity.


David’s life was guided by and dedicated to the arts. A prolific artist and musician, creativity was an integral part of his life. His creations - multiple albums, a full-length novel, paintings, sketches and poems - are just some of the cherished treasures he has left behind.


David was committed to a life of service, specifically making an impact in the lives of young people. He proudly served as an Instructional Assistant in the Special Services Department at Carmel High School.


David’s wit, curiosity, and passion will be dearly missed by his family and friends. He is survived by his father, David (Nicha) Flick of Lake Havasu City, AZ; mother, Suzanne (Alan) Lyon of Sheridan, IN, his former wife, Carrie Hilliker and beloved daughter, Cecilia Tennyson Hilliker-Flick of Chicago, IL. David is also survived by his sister, Jennifer K. (Keith) Goldman of Rancho Mission Viejo, CA and two step-sisters, Kim (Silas) DeVaney, and Lori (Nick) Christy both of Sheridan, IN. David is going to be especially missed by his wonderful nieces, Gemma S. Goldman and Eva B. Kempf, as well as his sweet nephew and godson George N. Kempf. David is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins who will miss him very deeply. Preceding him in death are his grandparents Leonard and Mary Estes and James and Corrine Flick.


A funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2019 at 11:00 am at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church, 17102 Spring Mill Rd., Westfield, Indiana. Family and friends are invited to gather from 9:00 am until time of Mass. Father Fr. Derek Aaron will be officiating. Burial will be held at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois.




In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Carmel High School’s Special Services Department (https://www.ccs.k12.in.us/chs), The Musicians’ Foundation (www.musiciansfoundation.org) and Free Arts (http://www.freearts.org).

I send my deepest condolences to all of David's family. My heart breaks for all who knew him well and will miss him. I had the good fortune to work with Dave many, many years ago. We shared so many complicated conversations, debates, arguments, laughs, (mostly laughs) all while we kept the customers happy (not that we cared too much about that!) I will miss you Flick. I will miss our sing-songs, especially when you'd purposely try to change up harmonies by suddenly changing to a crazy key...just to mess with me. I pray you have peace now. In the words of Bono that we sang together a time or two...

And if, and if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
It's just a moment, this time will pass
