On Tuesday, January 26, 2010 Mr. Fred Hicks of Lamont and formerly of Vermilion passed away at the Lamont Health Care Complex at the age of 96 years. Fred was born on September 5, 1913, the youngest child of Mary Rosetta (Rose) and Louis Randolph (Lou) Hicks. He married Ethel Wilson on November 30, 1940. He and Ethel had four children: Geraldine (Elliott) Urquhart of Calgary, AB, Blain (Judy) Hicks of Prince George, B.C., Barbara Montgomery of Camrose, AB and Beverley (Greg) Trevor of Sherwood Park, AB. He was predeceased by his parents, brothers Wilfred, Bert, Earl and Clyde and sisters Lillian Stonehouse and Pauline Keating, his granddaughter Shelly Hicks, many nieces and nephews and his loving wife, Ethel, of 67 years. Fred was a kind, gentle, loving and honorable man who lived a wholesome life. He was a wonderful husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend, and could always be counted on when he was needed. He will be remembered with a great deal of love by his children, their spouses, his grandchildren: Jamie (Laura) Urquhart, Michael (Lorraine) Urquhart, Dean (Lisa) Hicks, Shannon Hicks, Cory Hicks, Candace Trevor, Ashley Trevor, Serena Montgomery and David Montgomery, his great-grandchildren: Evan Urquhart, Sean Urquhart, Ben Urquhart, Tommy Urquhart, Jared Hicks and Keara Hicks, and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

He was very fond of them all and we, his family, appreciated knowing that he was being so well cared for. In lieu of flowers, a donation to your favorite charity in his memory would be appreciated.
