Ronald L. Hicks Sr., 78, of Rouseville, passed away Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at UPMC Northwest Hospital.
He was born November 7, 1939, the son of Catherine L. Gonnelly. On November 8, 1957, he was officially adopted by his mother’s then husband and his only known father, Robert A. Hicks, and took his surname.
As he grew older, many referred to him as “Trapper” because he resembled the TV character Dr. “Trapper” John McIntyre.

Ron is survived by his children, Lori L. Hicks, Ronald L. Hicks, Jr., and Kelly S. Hicks; his step-children, Mark Seigworth, Kevin Seigworth, Julie Seigworth and Lena Southworth; and 11 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
