Please accept our heart felt condolences at the loss of Jeff. He was an incredible friend, co worker and I know a loving husband and father. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Jeff will be missed by many.

Jeff, like his father, was a great individual and for me would be tied in the top 5 people I've ever had the honor of knowing. Though I haven't spoken to Jeff in years, since I've heard this terrible news have been barely able to function, he was that solid of a guy.
Most of us when we pass will simply leave a hole in our family but Jeff was unique and special in that not only did his family suffer this loss, the world suffered this loss as well because if the world were made up of people like Jeff Hicks, it would be a much, much better place.
To Jeff's children, though I've never met you, my heart absolutely breaks because your father epitomized what greatness is and the kind of person we all can aspire to be. Your father was truly a great man.

I was a coworker of Jeff's sveveral years ago at Nabisco and considered him a friend. I had not seen Jeff in years and was deeply saddened to hear of his passing. He was a great coworker and wonderful young man. I couldn't forget his smile and what a nice guy Jeff was.
I offer my condolences to the Hicks family and pray God will
comfort you in your sorrow and that memories of Jeff and the loving support of friends carry you as you grieve.

There are people that you come across in life that just seem to stand out. Jeff was certainly one of those people. He was a co-worker at Clorox that became a friend. He had a big personality that brought energy and purpose and always balanced it with his contagious sense of humor. It was shocking to hear the news and he will be missed by those of us that were blessed with the privilege of knowing him and working with him. My deepest sympathy to Jeff's family, you are in our prayers.

Today one of my dearest friends will do the unimaginable, say until we meet again to her beautiful son. I will always remember the curly haired little man who would visit you at work & greet you on returning home. Jeffrey was an adorable little boy and from your stories, a wonderful, gentle young man. Cindee, my heart will forever ache for you and your family.
Love you, Michelle

I had the honor and privilege of working with Jeff at the Clorox Plant in Aberdeen, MD. Jeff was always so full of life and loved his job. He made our plant and all the people he touched much better and he was respected by all. I appreciate all the things that Jeff did for me and I will miss my friend.

Love you buddy,

I am honored and blessed to have known Jeff. I worked with Jeff at Clorox. Many fond memories. I remember we were on a business trip in Philadelphia with several Clorox employees. We were on an elevator and the power went out and we were stuck between 2 floors. We had to wait for the fire department to come free us. Of course only Jeff remained calm during the whole ordeal. My condolences go out to all those whose lives Jeff touched.

Mechelle, Conner, Kendall, and Madeline,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I worked with Jeff during his time at the Clorox Chicago plant. He was passionate in his approach to life, quick with a joke and he impacted many lives during his time with us.

You are in my thoughts and prayers as you navigate through this trying time.

I send my deepest sympathy to Jeff's family. I will keep all of you in my prayers. I met Jeff many years ago when he worked for my brother, Mark Watkins owner of Mark IV Landscaping. He was such a wonderful young man and a great worker. Jeff may you rest in peace.

Posted by LuAnn Thomas - Schererville, IN - Acquaintance   September 26, 2018

I will never forget that infectious laugh. We were both in tears on a flight from Mexico - neither of us could talk we laughed so hard. What a great guy - colleague, friend, father, husband, brother, son. Each time we talked it was family, work and some good laughter. Rest in peace my friend.
