Obituary

Ernest Hicks was born March 21, 1951 to Savannah Ann (Wyatt) and Clarence Hicks, Sr. in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He departed this earthly life on Sunday, March 13, 2022.

 He accepted Christ at an early age and became a member of Pilgrim Baptist Church. He graduated from Central High School in 1969. Upon graduation, he attended Manchester College and Indiana University. As stated by one of his college classmates, “I don’t know if you knew how brilliant your Uncle was? He never studied while some studied and barely got by; he would ace a test without opening a book!”  He loved singing, reading, plus westerns shown in black and white.

He was a devoted caretaker for his mother, Savannah and loved to cook Sunday dinner for his many nieces and nephews.

He leaves to cherish great memories his daughter, Kymberli Warren; son, Jason Hicks; grandson, Jacquese Hightower; great-grandson, Jailyn Hightower; great-granddaughter, Jaila Coley; brothers, Rev. Clarence Jr. (Anne) Hicks and Shawn Hicks; sisters, Ernestine Hicks and Deborah (Cleophas) Walker; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Savannah Hicks, Sr.; sisters, Dora Ann Easley and Algerine Hill.
