I will miss you very much you never know how much you helped me and my family. He left good scars on my son's life(and ours) when he would stay with John when he was young and they would watch football together, and the John would always get the guitar out before we took him home and play for him. Sure wish I could have been there to say goodbye and meet eveeryone. If someone knows how to contact his daughter, I would love to share some special memories with her. Please email me at hotrodgirl1939@yahoo.com Sherri George, March 14, 2008 I lived next door to John for the last couple of years, and really enjoyed being his neighbor. I'll miss talking with him in the evenings ...and hearing those Harleys roar on Sunday mornings. See ya later John. Sonny Wilson, March 3, 2008 My husband and I moved to McKinney two years ago and were blessed to be John's next-door neighbors. We recently discovered his passing and want to let his friends and family know what a sweet, sweet man he was to us. He always had kind words and kisses for our 1-year-old son, Hank. His neighborly smile and constant cheer will definitely be missed. With our sympathy, Sonny, Sandie, Sylvie, Emma and Hank Wilson Sandie Wilson, March 3, 2008 even though uncle Jay and I had not seen each other since the death of my dad (his brother Dick) I had always kept in contact with him through phone calls just to let him know how things were going. i'm sure my father and him are together right now "shooting the sh**" (as they would call it) you will both be missed. Rest in Peace angela marie bennett, January 31, 2008 My memory of Jay was as a small girl watching him play the guitar and his wife singing "Snowbird" it was the song on the times (early 70's) and I thought they were the one's I would hear on the radio. My best memory will always be Jay's foundess for my Daddy, Jerry Hicks. When Jay lost his big brother Dick it as only natural to look for comfort in their life long friend and true brother to help fill the void. Together Jay and Daddy kept Dick's memory alive and shared many happy memories. Blessings to all for the loss of a good man and may you cherish many happy memories. Kimberly Sue Hicks-Norton, January 30, 2008 J.C. was my first cousin. His father was my mother's brother. I have fond memories of him as a rascally young boy who had the prettiest eyes. I know he will be missed by all who knew him. Sorry we lost touch through the years. Nancy Ann (Larr) Roth, January 29, 2008 He's riding with the angels now Steve Woodson, January 29, 2008 We will miss John popping in for an appointment when we least expect it. We will always remember that smile and laugh. the office staff of Dr Kanu Patel dr kanu patel, January 29, 2008 treasured our one visit we had-wish there had been more/thought of you often deb jo mayhugh-newhouse-young, January 28, 2008 John (JC) and Dick and me traveled many roads in around 50 years. In many ways we were like brothers. Most of the roads we traveled were fun and exciting but there was some bumps and curves here and there mixed with pain. I will truly miss the every Sunday phone calls from Jay to talk about the Dallas Cowboys and the Indianapolis colts and talk over old times. We talked about days gone by, family and ofcourse Dick whom we both missed very much. My sincere prayers and sympathy go out to his daughter Sandy and all of his relatives and and many who called him Friend. Jerry Hicks Jerry Hicks, January 28, 2008 JC and his brother Dick were lifetime friends to my father(Jerry Hicks) of Evansville Indiana after Dick passed a few years ago JC and my father would talk every Sunday just to stay in touch. I know my father will miss their Sunday conversations as well as a good friend. JC may you rest in peace. Janice Hicks-Mendoza, January 28, 2008 JC as I know him and Dick (his brother)was dear friends of my brother Jerry Hicks. We all were raised together and our mothers were real close . As a matter of fact Louella died two weeks before my mother and Jays commett to me when we lost our mothers was "it is hell to lose two moms so close together". JC's has a brother Dick who has passed away a few years eariler , and half sister Betty. We will miss your calls we got to receive when you couldn't find Jerry on sundays. You was a very kind person and will be missed by many. Donna (Hicks) Adcox Donna ( Hicks) Adcox, January 27, 2008 "JC" as we called him, was my 1st cousin. I live in Richland IN, and was around JC when he resided in Evansville IN. He sold cars many years in Evansville & liked going to the horse races at Ellis Park. He was always fun to be around! I haven't seen JC in years, but will always have fond memories of him. Paula A Clark, January 26, 2008 John was a very devoted Sonic Drive-In customer.
