Vance C. Hicks “Cricket”
February 6, 1948- June 1, 2020
It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Vance C. Hicks “Cricket”, 72, of Charlottesville, Virginia. He passed peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Monday, June 1, 2020. Born on February 6, 1948, in Louisa, Virginia, he was the only son of Robert and Hazel Hicks. He was preceded in death by his parents. Vance was a man of strength, character and tenacity in the face of overwhelming odds. He will be remembered for his quick wit, for his love of family and friends, for his dedication to those less advantaged than he and for his generosity. He will be remembered by his devoted and loving wife, Doris; his three children, Robbie (Nancy), Jennifer (Dave), Jay (Kara); grandchildren that he adored, Ryan, Sam, Harper, Jackson and Megan (Matt); and great-granddaughter, Charlotte; his sisters Vicki Schwarz (Lou), Cynthia Schoening and Lana Carpenter and numerous other family members and friends.
A private graveside service will be held on Saturday, June 13, 2020 in Louisa, Virginia. A celebration of his life will be held at a time later this summer. Remembrances in his name can be made to the Hospice of the Piedmont; or to the community service organization of your choice.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
So very sorry to hear of Crickets passing. I had great memories of him and his family from our teenage years. Sending healing Blessings to his family.

He was a wonderful brother and I will miss hearing him ask “hey Vick how are you doing?”. He always ended each phone call with I love you and Lou. He was a great guy.
PRAYERS TO DORIS AND KIDS I KNOW YOU WILL MISS HIM BUT YOU HAVE GOOD MEMORIES TO HOLD ON TO. RIP CUZ
All though it has been years since I have seen Cricket. I will never forget the fun we had as kids around the Town of Louisa, Cricket was one of the Louisa Boys of the 60’s and we could be a rowdy bunch. My sympathy to the whole family. RIP Cricket.
Cricket you made life fun thru all those difficult yet awesome years of High School. You were the true meaning of what a friend is. I thank you for being mine. God Blessed us all with you.
