Larry E. Hicks
Larry E. Hicks, 71, of Washington, went to his heavenly home on Thursday, Nov. 28, 2019, while surrounded by his loving family.
Larry was born in Portland, Maine, on Aug. 23, 1948, and was the son of George Hicks and Carolyn (Thacker) Hicks. He was a 1966 graduate of Washington High School and was wed to his loving wife of 53 years, Janice (Gilley) Hicks, on Nov. 12, 1966. After being married Larry served his country proudly as a United States Marine, and during his tour he was deployed to the Vietnam War; upon his arrival home he joined the workforce at Crane as a civil servant, from which he retired in 2007. Larry attended First Christian Church, was a member of the VFW Post 3321, American Legion 196, and the AFGE 1415, and he enjoyed boating, fishing and spending time with his grandchildren. Larry and Janice also enjoyed escaping to Florida over the cold winter months after their retirement.
Survivors include his wife, Janice M. Hicks; daughter Danyelle Norris (Kevin Woods); son Shane Hicks (Shelley); grandchildren Bradley Hicks, Logan Hamilton (Bryce), Makaylah Kersey, Michael Kersey, Kasandra Kersey; his mother, Carolyn Matteson; and his sister, Cindy Hicks.
Larry is preceded by his father, George Hicks; two sisters, Karen Harper and Joyce Wininger; a brother, Phillip Gerrish.
