Heaven gained a wonderful man. A man that welcomed me with a hug the first time he met me and excepted me and my girls as family. Never let any of us feel out of place. My father in law will be missed greatly by so many, cause to know him is to love him!! I love you dad and miss you so much already!!
I was blessed to have him as my Dad for 18 years. I will miss him dearly. I really loved that man.
Miss you already! Dad, mentor, best friend.
Rev. Steve Johnson
Billy and family...I was certainly saddened to hear of the passing Mr. Hicks. Just from the few posts here i can tell he was well loved and he loved well...
In the midst of your sorrow and sadness, let me encourage you all to dwell on the many lessons he taught you, and on the legacy that he left which will be here for years and years to come.

Dad I will always remember you as a man's man of the wisest variety. You set the example for all of us and anyone else smart enough to pay attention. You were the best Father a man can be and have given me gifts that I will take with me forever. I will always love you and will never forget the man that you were.
