Remembering Grandaddy Hicks

In the middle is Robert Henry Hicks I. He is surrounded by his children. From the left : Larkin, Bob, Robert Stanley, Willena, Ralph.

This photograph seems to have been taken in the 1980s. Probably early 80s, because I don't remember my granddaddy ever looking like this. This is the way I remember him:

A letter from England dated December 10 1944 from Robert Stanley Hicks to his mother. Was Wilena married to Clarence Harris yet? When did his boat get shot out from under him? He wasn't able to see Jr yet. Was he ever able to? If you know the answer to any of these questions, leave a comment.

Aww..isn't he cute.  This is my grandfather Robert Stanley Hicks. Son of Robert Henry Hicks of Stockbridge Georgia. He was born 17th of December 1920 and died 12th of March 1996. A few things I remember are: 1. Granddaddy (as I called him) would bring you a bacon and egg biscuit from McDonalds in the morning if you spent the night at his house. 2. He would take my sister, Mandy and I to the park at Fort Gillem and then to the 7 Eleven to get a slushy. 3. We would ride in the back of his old Ford pickup truck. (It was safe to do that back in the 80s)
What do you remember?
