Charlie was born December 22, 1982 at Victory Memorial Hospital in Waukegan, IL, and was brought home from the hospital in a Christmas stocking on an unseasonably warm Christmas Eve. Charlie graduated from Zion-Benton Township High School in 2000. He lived in various places including California, Oklahoma, Florida, Boston, and most recently, Kenosha. Charlie worked as a machinist at the Hinz Company in Franklin, Wisconsin. Charlie loved supporting those he cared about and attended their events whenever he could, whether it was supporting a friends band or an art show. He had a heart of gold and was a source of support for the friends and younger cousins who looked up to him. He was a “funcle” and enjoyed fishing with his nephews, he had a knack for creating funny photoshopped pictures of himself in unique situations, which was a source of amusement. His friends and family will always remember his entertaining spirit which including riding his unicycle; his caring heart and his gift of being a good listener. He is survived by his parents, Esther and Otis Hickman, and Carlos and Michelle Whitlock; brother, Jerry (Stephanie) Hickman; sister, Amanda (Chris) Furno; and nephews, Aiden and Leo Hickman; and aunts and uncles, Anita Hickman-Rivera, Owen (Cyndi) Hickman, Sherry (Marlon) Hagen, Charlotte Bailey, Brenda Briggs, and Glen Whitlock; and many cousins and a large circle of friends who were like family to him. He was preceded in death by two grandmothers, Mary DeBoer, and Dorothy Hickman; and a grandfather, Jerry Whitlock. A memorial visitation will be held on Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 4:00 until 7:00 p.m. at the Congdon Funeral Home, 3012 Sheridan Road, Zion, IL.
