Obituary

John Romie Hicks March 27, 1933 March 13, 2020 Middlesex......John Romie Hicks, age 87, passed away at his home with his beautiful, loving wife, Hilda holding his hand. The treasures of Papa`s life were his grandchildren Laura Ayscue, Jacob and Josh Murray, Caleb Upchurch and Waylon Creech. He served his country in the Korean War as a skilled marksman. He was one of the first to start Ferrell`s volunteer fire department in Samaria. While our hearts are broken, we know he`s playing cards, throwing golf clubs, and clowning around in heaven with the best of them. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Pam Creech and all fourteen of his siblings. Visitation will be Monday March 16, 2020 at Samaria Baptist Church from 10:00 AM to 10:45 AM with the funeral service following at 11:00 AM with Rev. Tyler Cone officiating.
