Mason M. “Butch” Hicks Jr., 74, of East Brady died Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at Butler Memorial Hospital.
Born January 26, 1946 in Kaylor, he was the son of Mason and Margaret “Peggy” (Vosburgh) Hicks.

A 1964 graduate of East Brady High School, Butch was employed by Daman Industrial Services as a spray welder where he retired from in 2012.
Butch enjoyed camping at Vacationland in Goddard State Park, Sandy Lake, PA. This was his home away from home during the summers after his retirement and where he loved spending time with his grandchildren. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and had a passion for Harley Davidson’s. Butch loved older cars and his dream was to own a 55 Chevy.
