EAGLE GROVE – Quincy James Babcock, the son of Mike and Candice (Willard) Baker, was born on August 16, 1975, in Fort Dodge, Iowa and was raised and educated in Eagle Grove, graduating from Eagle Grove High School, “Class of 1993”. He then attended college at I.C.C.C. (1993-1996) and Westmar College in LeMars (1997-1998). Quincy worked for the Seneca Foundry in Webster City.
Quincy was an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys, Syracuse basketball and a true “history buff” always relishing a good game of trivia. He excelled in playing football and loved watching games and all sports. You could find him watching ESPN 24/7, movies and playing Madden NFL. Quincy was big into lifting weights, you could always catch him flexing in the mirror and wearing his shirts too small just to show-off his big muscles. He also enjoyed spending time with his kids and get-togethers with family and friends, playing Baggo matches and other competitive activities. Quincy loved his food being very particular about meal time and his all-time favorite food was a Casey’s donut. He will be remembered for his “laid-back” personality, always smiling and joking being loved by many.
