Steve Brick, 61

Steve Brick, 61 of Austin, Minnesota passed away on Thursday, March 31, 2022 at the Cedars of Austin after a long battle with dementia.

Stephen Joseph Brick was born October 14, 1960 in Owatonna, Minnesota to Don and Arlene (Teigen) Brick. The Brick family moved to Austin in 1970 when his father Don opened Brick Furniture. Steve graduated from Austin High School with the class of 1979.

On August 1, 1986 Steve and Nancy Cooling were married. They have one son Gavin whom Steve was so proud of. Steve and Nancy celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary on August 1, 2021.

Steve was the very proud owner of Brick Furniture. He loved working side by side with his father Don. Steve “never worked a day in his life” according to him. He never planned on retiring.

Steve loved to ride his Harley – he said it was freedom! You might have seen Steve at a casino or at the local Legion with his “pally” Spokes. His positivity was contagious even to those who thought they were immune. He was an energetic social person, a loyal friend, loving husband and a very caring father. A man who will be missed by many.

He was preceded in death by his father Don.

Steve is survived by his wife Nancy Brick; son Gavin Brick; mother Arlene Brick; sister Mary (Phil) Ralphs; brothers John (Kari) Brick, Matt (Tara) Brick; sisters-in-law Joni (Lee) Hansen, Sue (Kurt) Nelson, Paula Howard; nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
