So sorry to hear of Harry’s death, he has my dear friend of over 25 years! He was a sweet man, we went to dinner often together and to the casinos years ago. Sandy and Harry were such good friends, we made many 3 couple trips in our vans all over Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois , Tennessee, Mississippi and even Hawaii. He will not be forgotten by me. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family.

Terri, Becky, Diana & Dan you are all in my thoughts . I have so many wonderful memories of having your Dad as my softball coach. He had an infectious laugh and a generous heart. I will miss him & his “Hey kid” when I would run into him later in life. Peace be with you Mr. Hicks….❤️
