Mr. Donald Hickman, Junior

On Sunday, January 8, 1933, a beautiful baby boy was born to Mr. Donald and Mrs. Ethel Lee Maynor Hickman, one of ten children and was called “Don Junior” and “Junior” by his siblings, family and special friends.

He attended Booker T. Washington high school and later married his special friend and sweetheart Mrs. Charlene Harry Hickman, who preceded him in going home to be with Christ. To this union two children were born, a son, Mr. Billy Don Hickman, and a daughter, Dr. Faye Jean Hickman, who was called to glory on Sunday, June 18, 2023.

Donald Hickman, Jr. worked in various occupational positions, including a mechanic for Sapulpa Chevrolet Company before employment with Frisco Railroad, and retiring after approximately 40 years. At an early age he lived in Bakersfield and Button Willow, California and later Phoenix, Arizona. Donald traveled throughout the country including Wichita Kansas and Tampa, Florida.

After returning to Sapulpa he renewed his membership at the Hickman home Church, Macedonia under the leadership of Reverend Oscar Howard, where he was a member from a young age. Though his illness, he continued to attend church as often as possible. Don Jr., loved God, his
family, church, Pastor, Friends and community and would assist in any way possible. He was a hardworking and wonderful husband and father who took care of his family until the end.

On Saturday night June 17, 2023 approximately 11:30 PM God called him home. Mr. Hickman’s Mother, Father and seven siblings preceded him in going to glory.

He leaves to cherish his memory one son, Billy Don Hickman, grandchildren, Renshia and Donnshia Hickman; Also, Brandilyn (Brandy) Marsh, Donald Marsh, and several great-grandchildren. His memory is also cherished by his three sisters: Juel Hickman, Shannon Smith, Ph.D. (spouse,
