Garrett K. Hicks

Garrett K. Hicks, 83, of Convoy, passed away at home on Friday, October 9, 2020. 

Garrett was born in Hueysville, Kentucky on July 25, 1937, a son of the late Mary Ann (Coburn) and William Hicks.

He followed his family from Kentucky for job opportunities to work at Perma Glass in Payne. It was then that he met his wife-to-be, Linda Croy. In 1961 he was drafted into the U.S. Army, where he served until 1963 at the 38th parallel in Korea. Upon his return, Garrett married Linda on October 5, 1963 and went to work at BF Goodrich for 25 years until he retired. He then became very active in the National Clock & Watch Association. He was known for his quality repair of antique clocks and for building various models. He was a member of the Korean Veterans War Association, the VFW and American Legion. Due to his friendly demeanor, he never knew a stranger!

He will be sadly missed by his wife, Linda; children Glenn (Dianna) Hicks & Lisa (Dan) Carr; sister, Pearl Fulk; grandchildren, Morgan, Danica, Kirstin & Dylan Hicks, Treg Haberkorn & Taylor Carr and step grandchildren Jordan (Shawn) Meehan & Hayley Carr.

Garrett was preceded in death by his siblings, Sylvia Raines, Trylbia Osborne, Viola Beverly, Katherine Onley, Bertral, Elmer & Delmar Hicks and grandson, Cameron James Hicks.

He will be laid to rest privately with military honors in Lehman Cemetery, Payne.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please mail memorials directly to United Way of Van Wert County, 136 E Main Street, Van Wert, OH 45891-2464. Funds will be distributed to Paulding and Van Wert Food Banks.
