William G. “Bill” Hicks
William G. “Bill” HicksFlagWilliam G. “Bill” Hicks, 80, of LaRue passed away unexpectedly at his home Sunday, January 10, 2021.

Bill was born November 2, 1940 in Sharkey, KY to the late Willis and Rusha (Kegley) Hicks. He graduated from the LaRue High School, class of 1959. Shortly after graduation, he was drafted into the US Army. After being discharged and returning home, he began working at  Quaker Oats  in Marion. He worked in the shipping department until Quaker closed their doors. He then worked at LaRue Millworks before he retired.

Bill always loved the great outdoors. He especially enjoyed raising horses and tinkering around on his farm. Going to auctions was one of his guilty pleasures and he always enjoyed getting the last winning bid.

Bill is survived by his siblings: Jack (Sue) Hicks of Apollo Beach, FL, Barb Adams of Marion, Jo Creamer and Dan (Claudia) Hicks, both of LaRue, Rick Hicks of Cardington, Pam Warner of Marion, and many nieces and nephews that he loved dearly.  
Preceding him in death were grandparents, brothers-in-law Jerry Adams and Jim Warner, and sister-in-law Nancy Hicks.

To the Hicks Family,
   Our condolences to you all. We spent many a Saturday with Bill at my fathers auctions. Standley Auction was a family run business. I clerked for my father and Bill was always sharing stories and laughter with my Dad! He especially watched out for my son who ran the sheets for us. Our son has a disability and Bill helped him out when we needed it!!
    He shared his struggle with cancer so in later years we would always converse about his cancer journey.

    A life remembered is a life well-lived!
Joni Standley Siler
Standley Auction Service
