Natchitoches, LA

Sherald Hicks, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 86, surrounded by his family on February 25, 2024. Sherald lived a life filled with love, laughter, and adventure, leaving behind a legacy of kindness and generosity that touched the lives of all who knew him. 

 

Born on January 16, 1938 in Reeves, Louisiana to Arnold Ruby and Thelma L Hicks. Sherald lived his life with a passion for helping others and exploring the world around him. Sherald’s love for travel took him to nearly every corner of the country, from the sandy beaches of Florida to the beautiful mountains of Colorado and even the ocean floor of Cozumel. Sherald married Nelda Ammons on September 16, 1994. In 2000, Sherald and Nelda moved to Toledo Bend Lake. It was there that so many great memories were made fishing, skiing, and tubing with family and friends. Sherald attended the Zwolle United Pentecostal Church for years where he made so many great friends. He loved God and Southern Gospel music! 

 

Sherald worked at Petron for many years in Transportation Management. He went on to own his own hardware store, Bentley Hardware and trucking company, SL Hicks Inc. In his later years he drove a school bus for Grant Parish Schools and performed CDL test. 

 

Sherald cherished the time spent with his loved ones. Whether it was a weekend getaway or a simple family dinner, he treasured every moment spent together, creating memories that will be cherished forever. Though he may no longer be with us in person, his spirit will live on in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know him.
