Personal

Wick grew up on a farm near Syvde, Norway. He came to the US in 1913, working in Seattle as a builder of apartment buildings. When the building industry collapsed in the 1930s, he took a job as Superintendent of Construction for pools at the Sol Duc Hot Springs, near Port Angeles, WA. The Sol Duc Resort had three mineral hot spring soaking pools and one freshwater pool. The pools were located within the Olympic National Park. He worked in Seattle after the war, and took on jobs in Spokane and around the state for the remainder of his career.

Wick's parents were farmers who had nine children.

One son was Peter D. Wick, Jr., with whom he operated Wick Construction Company after 1952. Another son was Andrew P. Wick.
