(Tuesday - December 08, 2020) - Dale W. Hicks, age 73, of Kingsford, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 6, at Dickinson County Memorial Hospital.

Dale was born on June 2, 1947 to the late Howard and LaVerne (Wahlstrom) Hicks. He was raised in the Iron Mountain/Kingsford area and attended Kingsford High School. In 1983 Dale married Marie and they shared 33 years of marriage before her passing in 2016.

Following high school, Dale joined the Coast Guard and used the skills he acquired there in various jobs including working at shipyards, painting, and as an insulation expert. Dale was a very hard worker and took pride in all of his projects, no matter how big or small. He was a proud American Legion member as well as a member of the Boilermakers union. Dale really enjoyed hunting, fishing and coin collecting. He was quite the history buff and was an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Cubs. He loved country music. Dale reveled in the time shared with family and friends and loved to cook for all of them. Dale's laughter was infectious... It will remain in our hearts and minds forever.

In addition to his parents, Dale was preceded in death by his second wife Marie; step-son Donny; brothers Roger and Marvin; and sisters Marilyn and Nancy.

Left to cherish Dale's memory are his three children, Dale (Jennifer), Kimberly (Mark) and Pam (Darren); grandchildren, Charlie, James, Paige, Drew, Derek and Liam; step-children, Tiana (Andrew), Brenda (Joe), Twyla, Scott, Steve and Brian(Laura); Multiple step-grandchildren and step-great grandchildren; brothers, Randy, Bruce and Doug; sisters, Beverly, Ginger and Charlotte as well as many other family and friends too numerous to mention all by name, who loved him dearly.

Due to the pandemic, no services will be held at this time.
