Kenneth Hickman Funeral and Expenses

Hi, my name is Diana. I am writing this with such a heavy heart. My dad, Kenneth Hickman, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, February 12, 2022, at around 8:31 pm. He was an amazing man with a great story. He saw war three times in his lifetime and served in the military for 26 years in total. He was a feisty, ornery, character with a heart of gold. At the end of his life, he suffered from hypoxia dementia and needed near 24/7 care, so we didn't have time to prepare for the unthinkable. Now we are struggling to make ends meet and figure out how to pay for his cremation.

We did not know when we woke up that morning that it would be the last day we would have with him ever. He was having breathing problems but we thought it was his oxygen tanks so we spent the morning trying to fix those. His pulse ox was around 85 to 80, which was normal for him because of his condition, but that evening at around 7:31, I called 911 because his oxygen had gone down to 77 and then 58 in a matter of minutes. By the time they took him out, his pulse ox was down to 49 and dropping. By the time he reached the hospital, he had no heart rhythm. That night our world fell apart.

**All proceeds will go towards paying the cremation and a few months' rent and utilities.
