Mr. Howard David Hicks, age 53, of Mineral Bluff, Georgia passed away on February, 28, 2024, at the Hamilton Medical Center in Dalton, Georgia

Mr. Hicks was of the Christian faith and Baptist denomination. He enjoyed God's created nature, especially fishing. David always enjoyed socializing with family and friends and sharing a good time together. When he was able, he often went walking and riding with "man's best friend" Rebel. He found great pleasure in spending time with his great-nephew, Jaxon, riding the mower together and cruising in the truck. David had a quick wit and drew others to him with jokes and wonderful sense of humor. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.
