Richard “Raymond” Hicks, age 76, of New Bloomfield, MO passed away Saturday, October 10, 2020 at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City, MO.

He was born on January 28, 1944 in Dawson Springs, KY, the son of Richard Hicks and Alice Lee South. He was married on June 21, 1975 in Manchester, MO to Sharon Kay Smith.

He worked as a Manager for Business Opportunities for Missouri Blind for 39 years, and retired in November of 2019.

Raymond loved to spend time with his family. He enjoyed fishing, playing cards, watching westerns and traveling. His family smiles in remembrance of his favorite meal consisting of a hamburger, well done, with no onions, French fries with no skin, and a diet coke. He impressed people with his abilities to determine the size of a wrench needed by just feeling the size with his fingers. Raymond was an ornery man, who enjoyed joking around and practical jokes, especially with his grandson, Tyler. But he was also a dedicated husband and father who was always there. He had an ability to strike up a conversation with anyone and could often be found sitting on a bench chatting with friends and strangers alike. His wife cherishes many vacations all over the country with him.

Raymond is survived by: his wife, Sharon Hicks; son, Brian Hicks; and grandson, Tyler Hicks, all of New Bloomfield, Mo.; and his sister, Kathy Siegmund (husband, Steve) of St. Mary, Mo.

He was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Carol Jennings.

Raymond’s wishes were to be cremated and have a private celebration of life at a later time.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Lions Business Opportunities for the Missouri Blind (LBOMB), P.O. Box 2320, Jefferson City, Mo. 65102.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary.

Me and my family have known Raymond and his family for over 30 years and have given us so many great memories. We were neighbors in the late 80s. They were the best neighbors anyone could ask for. I can remember when I was young they would take my family to a pizza place called Cecil Whitaker's and we would have the greatest time everytime. They were so special to me and my family. They always made sure we were ok . No matter what the situation they had a way to make us smile. Raymonds passing had a great impact on me and my family's life, but I know as good as him and his family was to everyone God will take great care of him Raymond will be forever missed and loved by me and my family
