Jack L. Hixson, 58, of South Shore, KY passed away on Nov. 30, 2020 at Southern Ohio Medical Center in Portsmouth, OH. He was born in Hillsboro, OH, on Oct. 27, 1962, a son of the late Birdie Hixson and Betty Brown Hixson Menshouse. Jack was one in a million, the kind of man who lit up a room with his presence alone. Jack was beloved by the community and known for his fun and charitable spirit, often giving back through various memberships, including The American Legion Post 471 & 271 and The Fraternal Order of the Eagles. He was also a member of The Loyal Order of the Moose for 20 years, where he served as President and earned Fellowship & Pilgrim Degrees.
Jack was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Wally and David Hixson. Surviving are his two daughters, Jessi (Jessica Crum-Hixson) Hixson and Emma Orasco; his sister, Janie Bowling; his nieces, Mandi Hixson-Adkins, Jennifer Miller, Cassi Cook, and Andrea, Amy and Ashley Bowling, countless other family members and his former wife, Susy Bailey, with whom he remained dear friends.
Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 11, 2020 at the Stevens Family Cemetery in South Shore, KY, with Gary Howell officiating. Roberson Funeral Home will care for all arrangements. Since in-person attendance is limited, services will also be live-streamed via Facebook for those who cannot physically attend.
