David "Dave" Paul Hickman, passed away peacefully at Sangre de Cristo Hospice on the evening of Aug. 16, 2020, with his wife Vickie at his side after a long battle with cancer. Strong of heart and mind, his last words were of love for his beloved grandchildren. Dave is preceded in death by parents, Ben and Sarah; his sister, Linda (Steve) Kuhn; father-in-law, Jim Glenn. He is survived by his loving wife, Vickie of 42 years; sons, Willie (Charlotte) and Matt (Shannon); grandchildren, Grace, Paxton, Arlo and Audrey; siblings, Charlie (Lynn) and Sharon Birrer; mother-in-law, Jo Glenn (Dan); brother/ sister-in-law, Jim (Rose) Glenn, Jenny (Dave) Sisson, Donnita (Jim) Daniels; numerous nieces and nephews. Dave was born in Pueblo and stayed there throughout his life. It was in Pueblo that Dave met his wife Vickie at church. They married in October 1977. Over the course of their marriage, they built a life together, had two sons, both of whom Dave was incredibly proud of, and lived a rich life full of love, surrounded by their dearest families. A man never too far from a joke or a smile, Dave could strike up a friendly conversation with anyone. He was a humble man who worked hard for his family. He had a passion and love for baseball, bowling and fishing. Dave especially enjoyed spending time with his many friends. His loss will be felt far and wide. Due to COVID-19, the family will schedule a celebration of life service at a later date. The family would like to thank all of the doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for their kindness over the last few years, especially Dr. Jim and Rhonda Stjernholm.

Dave and I worked together at Safeway one summer. He also worked with my dad there. It was always a good day if Dave was working. Kind, considerate, compassionate and definitely a man of God, He was a joy to know.

I was so sad to hear that David had passed away after such a struggle with cancer! As childhood friends he was so much fun. Every time I went through Pueblo would often bump into him in Safeway and he always had the same greeting and smile. Earth’s loss is heavens gain!!!

I have know Dave for a long time, I always liked him a lot. In later years I didn't see him often, but we talked in Safeway often. He was a special, caring person and he will be missed a lot. Our condolences to Vickie and the family. Who knew so many years ago at Prairie Ave Church, our great nephew would grow up to marry his niece and bind our families even more. Our love to all.

What an awesome man! I was lucky enough to share a couple of hobbies with Dave (Bowling, and Fantasy Sports). I loved hearing stories of the family, he loved you all! It wont be the same doing fantasy drafts without looking across the room and seeing Dave with his manila folders. Rest easy my friend!

I got to spend quite a bit of my childhood on the baseball field or hanging out at the house. He Was always quick with the jokes. I didn’t see him for years until I started playing softball out in pueblo west. I looked forward to seeing him almost every game for years. He was always talking about Matt and Will and how well you guys were doing. He is so proud of you two. I’ll miss seeing you out there. Rest easy my friend
