Chalmer William “Hank” Knick

Article Image Alt Text

Chalmer William “Hank” Knick, 84, of Pawnee City died at Premier Estates of Pawnee on Friday, February 8, 2019. He was born September 2, 1934, one of 16 children, in Froid, MT at the family farm. He grew up on his family’s farm where he tended livestock, harvested crops and especially enjoyed his time on a tractor or combine for many long hours. He became his own personal radio by singing all Hank Williams, Sr. songs at full volume along with his harmonica which he had taught himself to play. The local neighbors said they could hear him playing his harmonica when he would be rounding the corner of the fields, even above the equipment he was operating and was said to be quite good, too! He was also a big talent on the dance floor with his fancy two-step and swing moves. The ladies were always lined up waiting – so he never had to go looking for a partner.
