Obituary for Gene Roy Hicks

Gene Roy Hicks of Oak Ridge often said “To have friends one must be friendly.” He was both. He left this world for a better one Monday, September 16 at the age of 87. He was a Marine during the Korean War and was “always faithful” to the Corps, to his family, and to his community. He was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years Jewell Chappell Hicks, parents Basil and Grace Hicks, brother Howard Hicks, and sister Dorothy Humphreys. He is survived by daughter Angie Hicks Fincher (Joe) of Oak Ridge, son Mike Hicks (Janet) of Jefferson City, grandchildren Joshua Hicks (Melanie) of Jefferson City, Matthew Hicks (Nicki) of Dandridge, Gina Hensley (Adam) of Pace, Florida, Lisa McCune (Chris) of Lenoir City, great-grandchildren Graham Hicks, Grady Hicks, Pip Hicks, Mia Hicks, Topher Hicks, Lucas Hensley, Mila Hensley, and special friend Ruby Hicks. Special thanks to Carol Schappel and other staff at Professional Case Management. He retired from Oak Ridge National Laboratory after 35 years of service. He was a long-time member of Central Baptist Church, an avid genealogist, a true American patriot, a proud member of the Sons of the Revolution, and a man who didn’t let anything slow him down.
