It is with a sad heart I will try to write the obituary of Paul Hicks.  Paul was born on December 22, 1969 to
Lawrence and Roxie Hicks of Hueysville, Kentucky, and passed away on April 5, 2003.

   Paul met and married Sarah Crider and chose to continue living at Hueysville.  Paul was employed by R & J Well
Service as a tool dresser.

   Paul liked to hunt and fish and spent many hours out in the hills and down by the water.  On Saturday, April 5,
2003, Paul was going to enjoy another sport, but his life was cut short by a massive heart attack and he was
pronounced dead at our Lady of the Way Hospital in Martin, Kentucky.

   Paul was preceded in death by one son, Paul Blake, and is survived by his wife, Sarah, his daughter, Khayla,
one step-son, Michael, his parents, Lawrence and Roxie Hicks, his sister, Michelle Handshoe, and his brother,
Brent Hicks; not only was Brent his brother, but he was his special friend, too.

   When we lose someone we love, we need to feel God’s love then more than anything else in the world.  When
our world was turned upside down at the funeral, we found out that Sarah is pregnant and Paul knew but they had
not told anyone yet.  It helps to know that through this child Paul lives on.

   Death at such a young age lets us know that we should always be ready for we know not what time our time will
come to meet the Lord.
