Obituary

“What we once enjoyed and deeply loved, we can never lose,

 for all that we love deeply, becomes a part of us.” 

 

      Antonio O’Neal Hicks, was born Wednesday, October 26, 1977 in Emporia, Virginia to Shirley Ann Hicks Scott and Randolph Scott.

     ‘Big Jed’, as he was fondly called by his loving family and friends, was educated in the Greensville County Public School System. He loved his lifestyle of nice things. ‘Jed’ loved his family and friends, and enjoyed spending quality time with them. He didn’t mind going anywhere or doing anything; he was the life to everyone’s party! When you saw him he was always ready to get the party jumping, with the biggest smile on his face and that black and mild held on the side of his mouth. ‘Jed’ was all about family and friends. He loved his mother with all of his heart and the bond he had with his twin tower, Shaun, was inseparable! 

     “The clock of life is wound but once, And no one has the power, To tell just where the hands will stop, At late or early hour. To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed, To lose one’s health is more, To lose one’s soul is such a loss, As no one can restore.  The present only is our own, LIVE, LOVE and TOIL with a will, Place no faith in tomorrow, For the clock may then be still.” On Friday, June 10, 2022; while in the care of Mary Immaculate Hospital, Newport News, Virginia Antonio transitioned from time to eternity. He now rest in the safe arms of our Heavenly father alongside all those relatives who have gone on before him, including: his grandparents, Daisy Gertrude and Junior Hicks; aunts, Deborah and Quentilla and uncles, Eddie, Bill, James Jr., Charlie, Johnny and Sal. 

     Sad is the parting, no one can tell: So sudden on earth the sorrow fell,  the blow was hard, the shock severe; To part with one we love so dear. Only those who have lost can tell the pain of parting without farewell. Dearer still, as days depart; Our loved one’s memory will forever live within the hearts of: his children; Dejah Kerns, Jesaun Bynum, Rahieem Hicks, Antonio Latee and Jaelyn Hicks; his loving and devoted mother, Shirley Ann Hicks Scott; his father, Randolph Scott; two brothers, Shaun Hicks (Paulette) and Bryant Hicks Sr., two sisters, LaShawn Lee ( Rev. Corey Lee, Sr.) and Monica Taylor, nephews, Bryant Hicks, Jr., Tyrick Rawlings, Taquan Hicks and Corey Lee, Jr.; nieces, Alniesha Tanksley, Tamia Hill, Bri’Anna Hicks, Teonna Anderson, Shawnta Hicks and Zenobia Hicks; great nieces and nephews, Ammie Williams, Journey Worrell, Ja’khi and Jah’Mier Ru n; two God sisters, Malana Hicks and Shanell Moss; a very special, aunt whom he adored, Gloria ‘Aunt Moon’ Vincent; a host of great-aunts and uncles, relatives and friends.
