Stricker was born in Clayton, WI; oddly, there were, in 2012, three towns called "Clayton" in WI, in the widely dispersed Polk, Crawford and Winnebago Counties. He lived at three different addresses c. 1990-1995: 3303 South Massachusetts Street, Seattle, WA, 98144-4029 (1992); 3211 South Massachusetts Street, Seattle, WA, 98144-3942 (c. 1993-2002); 3343 South Massachusetts Street, Seattle, WA, 98144 (unknown date).

His last residence was in the 98144 zip code of Seattle, WA.

One son, Peter Stricker, also became an architect.

Architectural historian Michael Houser observed of Stricker's career: "Working from a home studio and office, Stricker’s unique 'organic' designs ranged in plan from V-shape to Y-shaped, and used a complex geometric abstraction as expressed in the plans, sections and elevations of his projects. Licensed in four states, Stricker completed over 130 projects for clients throughout the Northwest, Alaska and New Mexico. Many of his projects are dwellings which boast a careful orientation to their natural sites and custom built-in furniture."
