Andrew Hicks, Jr. was born March 10, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia to the late Maggie Horton and Andrew Hicks, Sr. He was the second born and only son with three sisters. He was educated in the Atlanta Public School System. In 1954, he committed himself to love and fatherhood in his marriage to the late Mrs. Charlie Mae Hicks. Later in life, he married Mrs. Francis Freeman Hicks whom preceded him in death. On Wednesday, October 21, 2020 he transitioned peacefully to his eternal home.

Andrew lived a life of service and love to his family, to his church (Salem Bible Church) where he served as a member of the Doorkeepers and he served his community at the Lou Walker Senior Center, Lithonia, Georgia. At Lou Walker, he was a member of The Travel Club, The Drama Club, The Volunteer Ambassadors and The Comedy Club. He was a symbol of strength wherever he served.

He leaves to cherish his memory daughters: Mrs. Regina (Eddie) Presley, Mrs. Portia (Doris) Collins, Ms. Arrvis Haynes, Mrs. Phyllis Hicks Ware; Mrs. Mary Jenkins; seven grandchildren: Mr. Renard (Jacquis) Presley, Ms. Kimberly Smith, Mrs. Terreon (Macarthur) Randolph, Mr. Dedrick Anderson, Mr. Kelvin Anderson, Mrs. Felicia (Devlin) Hicks Olawumi, Mrs. Shequida (Darrian) Dixson-Mayes; Mrs. Audrey Blount; three sisters: Mrs. Dorothy Washington, Mrs. Rosina Character and Mrs. Bettie Jean Simmons; and great-grandchildren, in-laws, and a host of friends and family. Among those that preceded him in death were a son; Mr. Andrew Hicks, Ill and daughter Mrs. Deborah Anderson.

He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and all of those that knew him.

"For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith"
~ 2 Timothy 4:6-7
