Posted By Hall-Wynne On June 25, 2019 @ 3:51 pm In Obituaries,Oxford | 21 Comments

Oxford, N.C. –

Clyde Hoey Hicks, age 83, died peacefully at his home surrounded by family on June 24, 2019. He was the son of the late Frank Loren Hicks and Dulcie Satterwhite Hicks. Clyde was a loving son, brother, husband, uncle, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.

Clyde was born on Culbreth Road in the Berea community of Granville County and lived there his entire life.  He graduated from Berea High School and married the love of his life, Eunida Welch. Clyde retired from IBM in 1992. He enjoyed solving the newspaper Crossword, Sudoku, and Cryptoquote daily and rarely missed an episode of Jeopardy. Sports were one of his many passions. He was an avid golfer and loved his time on the golf course. He liked spending time working on machinery, working in the yard and exploring with his loyal companion Gus the German Shepherd. Clyde loved nature, being outdoors, and spending time on the Tar River where he learned to swim at a very young age in “the deep hole”.

Clyde is survived by his wife of 63 years, Eunida; his children, Larry (Denise) Hicks, Roger (Emily) Hicks, Ann Kathryn (Mike) Daniels and Jeffrey (Beverly) Hicks; his sister, Betsy H. Garrett and brother, Victor Hicks.

Clyde has nine loving grandchildren: Amanda H. (John) Ulrich, Lydia H. (Lance) Martin, Michael (Kaitlin) Hicks, Stephanie H. (Chase) Wellford, Adam Hicks, Natalie H. (Jordan) Chandler, Harrison Hicks, Troy Daniels, Abigail Hicks and six adoring great-grandchildren: Layla Ulrich, Nash Martin, Callie Martin, Campbell Wellford, Olivia Hicks and Holden Wellford. He will be deeply missed by many family and friends.

Clyde was predeceased by his siblings: Jack Arrington, Maude H. Cates, Lois H. Woodlief, Doris H. Fogleman, Frank “Tunny” Hicks and Lindburgh Hicks.

The family would like to thank the staff of Duke Hospital, The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center, Duke HomeCare & Hospice and especially Dr. Dina Randazzo.

A visitation will be for family and friends from 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm on Friday, June 28, 2019, at Mt. Zion Baptist Church fellowship hall.  A memorial service will be held at 3:00 pm in the sanctuary officiated by Rev. Keith Williams and Rev. Tim Atkinson. Burial will follow the service at Mt. Zion Baptist Church cemetery officiated by Reverend William Wheeler, Jr.

Condolences to the Hicks family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.

Condolence from Elizabeth Evans on June 26th, 2019 2:22 pm

It was an honor and a privilege to help take care of Clyde. He was a kind, gentle, and witty human being. He was clearly surrounded by love and devoted support. A clinic visit with Clyde always meant laughter, joking, and a room packed full of loving family members. He will be greatly missed by our team at the Brain Tumor Center. Your family is in our thoughts.
