Wilfred was a kind and generous man who loved animals and was a friend to everyone. He especially enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time at the cabin at Big J’s and Boot Pond.

He was always happy to play a tune on a guitar, mandolin, fiddle or any other instrument you could find laying around. Wilf’s door was always open to anyone who enjoyed having a cup of tea and a good yarn.

Leaving to mourn with fond and loving memories his sons: Craig Hicks, Brian Hicks both of Gander, NL; grandson Matthew Hicks; and brothers Earl Hicks and Roy (Margaret) Hicks both of Bonavista, NL.

Craig and Brian, So sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He was always so good to me whenever I was at your house. He was a person that loved to laugh, was down to earth, was generous and had no pretensions. He has left you with a lifetime of memories to treasure and remember. I hope you gather comfort and strength in each other in the days ahead. Sincere condolences.

Wilf and Flo were the best of neighbours and great friends in good times and bad. That’s what I’ll always remember about growing up on Sullivan Avenue. And I’ll remember Wilf and Dad walking up the street with their lunch bags in hand, chatting and laughing on their way to another shift at Signals. My sympathies to Craig, Brian, and the entire family.
