I have so many great memories. I first knew Todd from the YMCA.  His dad was the Executive Director. He

became a good friend in high school. He and Steve Tate were the most competitive players I had ever see.

Todd was just as intense in his other pursuits in life. Yet he always had time to recognize everyone in his path. 

I hate that we rarely saw each other after our high school days. But I will never forget him. 

Prayers for his huge family as they mourn his passing. May God be with you as you continue your lives.

Todd was one the really good guys at Ashley High... a reliable, smiling friend to all.  Wish I had been able to spend time with him in later years.  Bet he became a darn good golfer with his athletic ability and competitive spirit.  He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.  Prayers for his special family.

Todd Hicks was just one those guys that had "The Right Stuff". I used to tease him about looking like Rod Serling from "The Twilight Zone" and he would just blush. What a good guy. I feelsad today..... Beverly

I still remember one touchdown run he made in high school where he faked out the safety (who fell flat on his face), and he ran 80 yards. You will still make those touchdowns my friend.
