Dr. Trick dedicated his life to honor and serve the Lord in many ways.  As a professor of 35 years, he touched the lives of many students.  He loved to inspire students to deeply study the Bible.  Dr. Trick was a fountain of biblical knowledge and wisdom yet, endowed with humility.  When a need presented itself, he did not hesitate to address the need.    Dr. Trick was loving, caring, fun and loved Bill Gaither and Sandy Patty.
