Larry Ray Hicks (Lucky Dog) of Leeds, Kansas City, passed away Friday, September 3rd at NKCH from covid. Celebration of life will be held at 5:00pm on Saturday, October 9th, at eggtc, 5107 Main St, Kansas City, 64112.
He was born on April fool’s day, 1952 and spent every day of his life honoring it. He retired from Jack Cooper Transport after 30 years.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Thelma Hope Hicks (Honea); father, Harry Burch Hicks, and his favorite dog, Pumpkin.
He is survived by: brother, Harry Hicks and wife Carol; girlfriend, Wanda Vaught; both of his ex-wives, Sandy Hicks and Jackie Hicks; five children and their significant others, Eric and Stacy, Justin and Jackie, Jackson, Mike and Bree, Alex and Nicholas; five grandchildren, Kylie, Harley and his mother Ashly, Keanon, Kennedy, and Ellie; and his companions, Big Boy and Ruger.
There is not enough ink in the world to describe him or tell his stories. He was loved by so many, and each one of us only knew a portion of the person he was. Being larger than life there will be many stories untold. In lieu of a traditional obituary I am asking everyone for their own Larry stories. Please share your stories so we can all add pieces to the portion of him we all have.
Instead of flowers, we are asking you to contribute to the Chain of Hope organization.
