NORMAN — Funeral service for Mr. William Hicks, 64, of Norman, will be 11 a.m. Tuesday in The Chapel of the Havenbrook Funeral Home, 3401 Havenbrook Street in Norman with Reverend Wes Collier officiating.

The Hicks family will greet friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the Havenbrook Funeral Home.

Bill was born July 25, 1948 in Oklahoma City, the son of Belden Edgar Hicks and Doris Lorine (Webster) Hicks. He passed away Friday morning, April 19, 2013 at the Norman Regional Hospital.

Bill attended the public schools in Spencer, Okla., graduating from Star Spencer High School in 1966. He was an outstanding football player, playing in the interior line. Bill and his teammates advanced to the state finals his senior year.

Shortly after his high school graduation, Bill was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Miss Mary Joann Reguron on Sept. 2, 1966 in Gainesville, Texas. Soon afterward, Bill and Joann moved to Wichita, Kan. where Bill was employed with the Boeing Corporation.

Bill and Joann returned to Oklahoma City where Bill started his own business, House of Wheels, in the early 70s. He continued to own and operate his bicycle shop for the next 20 years before retiring from the business in 1988.

He then began a career in car sales with Fowler Toyota in Norman, operating and managing the used car division of the dealership. While he was with Fowler Toyota, Bill was the recipient of several awards for his outstanding contribution to the company.

After more than 10 years of being in the car sales industry, Bill retired and began a career with Freightliner, focusing his skills and sales experience in the commercial truck sales industry. He retired in 2003.

Bill was a big-hearted gentleman, offering help and assistance to whomever needed it. He genuinely enjoyed investing in the lives of others and watching them prosper. Bill also loved being with his family, preparing large Bar-B-Quedinners and simply just spending time together. He enjoyed boating, golfing and being anywhere that was close to water.
