Herbert C. Hickman went home to be with his Lord Jesus Christ on May 16, 2006, at Bortz Health Care of Petoskey.
Herbert was born on Sept. 15, 1913, to Jacob C. and Ethel M. (Smith) Hickman in Isabella County, Mich. His family moved to Petoskey when he was still a young boy. He attended Greenwood, Joy Valley and Resort schools.
During World War II, he served in the Civilian Conservation Corps. He retired from Penn Dixie Cement Corp. after 28 years of service as a dynamite blaster. During that time, he served as steward and president of the local American Steelworkers Union.
He was a member of Farm Bureau. He served for many years on the board of review for Bear Creek Township. In early years, he was the president of the local American Sunday School Union. He was a member of The Salvation Army and served as the Petoskey Corps Sergeant Major. Herbert enjoyed farming, cutting firewood, and deer hunting. After retirement he helped his wife in gardening and they were active in the Farmers Market. He loved nature and was a good steward of God's great outdoors.
He was a family man who was very proud of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His greatest legacy was his love for his family and the Christian heritage he left them.
On June 20, 1937, Herbert married Irene E. Johnston at the Stutsmanville Church in Harbor Springs. They lived the 68 years of their marriage on their farm in Bear Creek Township.
