David Leo Carrick (Bing)

David Leo Carrick (Bing) passed away on Aug. 26, 2017 at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.  He was the father of Wendy (Rob) Heyrman, Melissa (John) Jones, and Holli Carrick. He was the much loved Grandpa of Marcus, Catalina, Madison, D.J., Sam, Maxwell, Mila, Lyddia, Chandler and Jordan.  He was the Master of his cherished canine companion Jax.


David was born Jan. 16, 1957 in Detroit, Michigan.  He was the 6th of 11 children of Ben and Vivian Carrick, loved and sometime tortured brother to Ben (Katie) Carrick, Gwen (Terry) Deuman, Mike (Kathi) Carrick, Bill (Deb) Carrick, Becky (Petsy) Parish, Laurie (Reg) Robbins, Mary (Al) Kurtz, Eileen (Norman) Cameron, Chris (Carol) Carrick, and Suzanne (Storm) Carrick. He was a loved Uncle of his many nieces and nephews.  He was also The Godfather  to his nephew Terry Deuman Jr.


His family moved to Brimley/Bay Mills in 1969.  He graduated from Brimley High School in 1976 and always said his favorite teacher was Mrs. I.  David received the nickname, Bing, after Dave Bing the professional basketball player.  We are not sure who started it, but it sure did stick, as some never realized it was not his given name.


David loved spending time outdoors, hunting, fishing, gardening, berry picking, riding the back roads and camping.  He was an avid Detroit sports fan especially the Tigers.  All these activities were best spent with his many friends. We are especially grateful to his special friends Albert and Angel Lothrop and Mike Chartrand. We will forever miss his sense of humor(Camp Far Wood), his big bear hugs and his generous, caring heart.


There will be a Celebration of Life gathering and cookout at his daughter Melissa’s on Sept. 2, 4 p.m. at 9729 W-M28.  Mass of Christian Burial will be held in his honor on Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017 at Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Church in Bay Mills at 12:30 p.m.  Online condolences may be left at

He attended “country” school, then graduated from Chelsea High School in 1962. He attended Jackson Junior College until 1964, where he often said he had the best teachers. He then continued his education at University of Michigan receiving a BA in 1966.


Jack taught school at Brethren (MI) for two years. He then moved on to graduate school at University of Michigan obtaining an additional 18 hours towards a master’s degree.

After selling insurance for a few years Jack went to work for the Schwan's Food Service for 11 years. He considered his customers to be his friends and it was hard to take him anywhere in the area without being stopped by one to chat with him.


Jack and his family moved to Brimley in 2000. His interests included many types  of modern music, hunting, fishing, birding, vegetable gardening and harvesting edible wild mushrooms. He also drove the Bay Mills Casino shuttle bus as a substitute, which he really enjoyed because it was working with people.

Other relatives surviving include a cousin Mary Bollinger (Dwyane) and their children, five nieces and nephews and their children, two brothers-in-law: Dick Scheer and Marc Simons and their spouses, Sally and Jan and sister-in-law, Maggie Lamb.
