Joseph "Larry" Hicks Obituary

Joseph "Larry" Hicks, 78, of Bardstown, passed away Thursday, March 28, 2024 at Flaget Memorial Hospital.  He was born on December 4, 1945 in Bardstown.  Larry was Catholic by faith and a long-time member of AA, helping many.  He enjoyed fishing, golfing, working puzzle books and woodworking.  His uniquely crafted "Hicks-Clusive" pieces included bookcases, benches, podiums, tables, canes, toy boxes, hall trees and many boxes.  He gave each item away with the same love he used in making it.  

He was a friend to every person giving of himself and his talents always.  A Kentucky Colonel and an organ donor.

The love for his family and friends was unsurpassed.  Expressed by his humble kindness and his willingness to lend a hand and an ear, he made everyone comfortable and more at peace.  He taught us all lessons, mostly to love unconditionally.  He is sorely missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Izola Riggs Hicks Bogle and two brothers, John Hicks and Kenny Hicks.

He is survived by his wife Denise Porter Hicks of Bardstown; three daughters, Lauran Shewmaker of Dayton, OH, Julie Miles of New Hope and Cheryl Emmick of Dayton, OH; three grandchildren, Aaron Edelen of Dayton, OH, Brennan Miles and Clayton Miles both of New Hope; several nieces, nephews other precious family members and his AA family.

His celebration of life will be at 1:00 P.M. Saturday, April 6, 2024 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
