Ceola "Larry" Hix, Jr. was Born on July 23, 1950, in Cincinnati, Ohio to Ceola and Elizabeth Hix. He was preceded in death by both parents and his sister Diane Hix. Larry was called home from his earthly life on August 8, 2021, while at home.

Larry was known to his family as 'Pa Pa'. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He always looked forward to the Christmas holiday and shopping for gifts. He enjoyed finding unique objects and showing them to family and friends. He also enjoyed traveling around the United States and around the world. He never left home without one of his many hats.

He attended Hughes High School where he ran track and field. In 1969 he enlisted in the Marines. After receiving basic training and a leave to visit family, he was immediately deployed to Vietnam where he served for several years, moving up the ranks from a private to a corporal.

He had many hobbies including playing old games, such as pac-man, watching movies, watching game shows, shopping on the home shopping network and playing lottery scratch-offs. He loved anything spicy, especially hot pickles. He always had snacks available for anyone to try. He loved trying different things and shopping at Jungle Jims.

Larry was employed at the Internal Revenue Service for over 30 years, where he retired. He never hesitated to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He will be truly missed.

He leaves to cherish his memory: Three sisters, Vera Mae Hix-Owens, Dorothea Hix Suggs, and Mary (Don) Jimmar; two children, Jasmine Hix, and Celeward Hix; 1 grandchild, Neveah Hix and a host of nieces, nephews, family, friends, and co-workers.


Poem:

Your Spirit

I know that no matter what

You will always be with me.

When life separates us

I'll know it is only your soul

Saying goodbye to your body

But your spirit will be with me always.

When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch

I will know it is you singing to me.

When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care freely

I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain.

When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention

I will know it is you reminding me

To appreciate the simple things in life.

When the sun shining through my window awakens me

I will feel the warmth of your love.

When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill

I will hear your words of wisdom

And will remember what you taught me so well

That without rain trees cannot grow

Without rain flowers cannot bloom

Without life's challenges I cannot grow strong.

When I look out to the sea

I will think of your endless love for your family.

When I think of mountains, their majesty and magnificence

I will think of your courage for your country.

No matter where I am

Your spirit will be beside me

For I know that no matter what

You will always be with me.
