It is with deep sadness that the family of Baxter Trueman Hicks must announce his passing on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at the Villa Providence in Shediac, N.B., following a lengthy battle with early onset Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Born on April 8, 1946 in Midgic, N.B. he was the son of the late Medley and Leota (Wheaton) Hicks.
Baxter was a member of the Middle Sackville Baptist Church and when health permitted he enjoyed volunteering with the Sackville Christian Academy. His family was a priority in his life and he enjoyed his gardens, a good card game, music and he loved to watch (and arm chair coach) the Toronto Maple Leaf’s and Blue Jays.
Baxter will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 52 years, Patricia (Kilcup) Hicks of Riverview, N.B.; his daughter, Gayle of Riverview, N.B.; his son, Gord (Danielle) of London, Ontario and his treasured granddaughter, Isabelle of Ontario. Baxter is also survived by his sisters, Donna Sears and Kay (Victor) Wells; his brother, Claude (Margie), as well as by several nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Baxter was pre-deceased by his brothers, Austin, Harold, Carl and Len.
