Timothy John “Chico” Hershberger Hicks, 48, of Somerset, Kentucky, passed away at 5:00 AM
on Saturday, April 4, 2020 at Hospice of Lake Cumberland in the Lake Cumberland Regional
He was born December 28, 1971 in Dayton, Ohio. Tim graduated from Pulaski County High
School in Somerset, graduated with a Culinary Arts Degree at the Fort Lauderdale Culinary
School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and enjoyed a career as an excellent truck driver. Tim was an
out-going person, well-liked by those he knew and never met a stranger. He had an amazing
smile, gave great big hugs, and had a big laugh. He was an outdoorsman, enjoyed fishing, “trade
& barter,” hunting, camping, loved animals (Miss Kittie, Lionel, Cocoa), enjoyed spending time
with friends, and was in Boy Scouts as a youth (one step from making “Eagle Scout”). Tim loved
his family and was, in turn, loved by a host of family and friends.
