Obituary of William Clarence Hicks

William (Bill) Clarence Hicks

October 5, 1936 - May 21, 2019         

 

Bill Hicks, a man who lived life to the fullest and lived it well, passed on May 21, 2019 after a 4.5 year struggle with Dementia at the Western Health Long Term Care in Corner Brook. He is predeceased by his parents Leslie and Beatrice Hicks, brother Reginald, sister Marian, and brother-in-law Dr. Doug Jenkins, In-laws Sandy and Elizabeth Hynes. Bill will be fondly remembered by his 7 children - Pam Elliott (Rick), Paul (Sherry), Kathie, Wayne (Donna), Deanne Solo (Rick), Philip (Jackie), and Michelle Patrick (Chris) and their mother, Doris Hicks, as well as dear friends Mike Anderson and Jack Haire.  He leaves behind 8 grandchildren - Terri Humphries (Stephen), Bradford Elliott (Laura), Erica Hicks, Jasmine Elliott, Robyn Froude, Jennifer Solo, Robert Hicks, and Drew Patrick, 2 great-grandchildren Charlotte and Chase Humphries; as well as many nieces and nephews. He will also be missed by his siblings Florence Loughlin (Jim), Derek Hicks (Marian), Diane Jenkins Frampton (Fred) and Tony (Colleen) and the Hynes family.   

Bill had a large circle of extended family and friends, many of whom called him the “The Reverend”.  He loved to socialize, hunt, go boating with buddies and was a gifted carpenter and welder who always extended a skilled hand to fixing and building for others. He enjoyed many years at Pinchgut Lake with his family and close friends and later, in retirement, he spent 6 months in Florida where he golfed, played cards, shuffleboard and any other activity that brought him fun with others.  In the summer months, he spent time in Deep Bight where he had another circle of friends. His heart was always in Corner Brook where he was born, grew up, raised his family and lived most of his years.  Gratitude is expressed to the staff at the Western Health Long Term Care in Corner Brook facility who cared for him during these past few years (specifically the wings Blueberry Crescent and Partridgeberry Place).

At his request, Bill has been cremated. Friends may visit Fillatre's Funeral Home, 4 St. Mark's Avenue on Monday, May 27 from the hours of 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. Interment to take place at Mount Patricia Cemetery on Tuesday, May 28 at 10:00 a.m. Rev. Jocelyn Cook Officiating. As expressions of sympathy donations may be made to a charity of one's choice.
