Frank “Franko” E. Hicks is survived by his wife, Darnell; son, Terry Hicks; and sister, Barbie Clough. He was preceded in death by his brother, Bob Hicks. Franko and Darnell were the founders of Noel Christmas Trees and Pumpkin Patch in Fairplay. Franko was a truck driver for 50 years. He had a passion for life and lived it to the fullest. His passion for fishing was fulfilled in Reedsport, Ore., and Baja, Mexico. A kind and gentle soul, he will be missed by many.
