William T. ‘Bill’ Hicks obitiuary

William T. 'Bill' Hicks

William T. "Bill" Hicks departed this earth Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019.

He was born May 16, 1926, the second son to Pete and Grace Harris.

He was a local icon in this small town, known as a graceful, beautiful and talented man. His family shared the memory of him teaching everyone to skate before they could walk. He brought joy and happiness to many people through his times at multiple skating rinks, and at times he even brought people to know the Lord while at the  rink. He considered this his avenue to spread the Lord’s work. He was also known as the man in the 1960 Chevrolet Impala. He was a simple man, not in it for the flash. He paid cash for everything, or he simply would not buy it. He always made sure his loved ones had what they wanted or needed. He was always ready to lend a hand and show compassion for others, whether it meant him going without something he wanted or needed. From helping others get new tires for their vehicles or gas in their tank, he did what needed to be done without saying a word. He loved to fish off the bank at Kentucky Lake with his two sons, David and Jerry. They could reel in fish like no other. He was loved by many, and will be deeply missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 55 years, Willadean “Dean” Alexander Hicks; one granddaughter, Jennifer Lynn Hicks; one sister, Judy Hicks; and two brothers, James Brien Hicks and Charles "Fuzzy" Hicks.

Mr. Hicks is survived by two sons, sons, David Thomas Hicks of Calvert City and Jerry Don Hicks of Benton; two daughters, Tammy Lynn Flippen and belated husband Jim of Gainesville, Georgia, and Angela “Angie” Dean Smith and husband Daryl of Gilbertsville; one sister Wilmuth “Corky” Cummins Hicks; 13 grandchildren, Amy Wood, Chris Wood and Scotty Flippen, all of Gainesville, Jason Hicks of Paducah, Kelly Hicks, Jeremy Don Hicks, Kim Hicks Stamper and husband Ronnie, Kristen Hicks and Jessica Hicks Kinsey and husband Kevin, all of Benton, Sydney Smith of Gilbertsville, Aaron Smith of Calvert City and Adam Smith of Paducah, who all affectionately knew him as "Pa Bill;" 20 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

The funeral service will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019, at Filbeck-Cann Funeral Home of Milner & Orr in Benton with Gene Gilliland officiating. Burial will follow in Benton Cemetery. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the funeral home.
