With the signs already in place, the Dickson County Commission formally dedicated the Highway 48 bridge over Water Street to the late Lt. Col. Malcolm Glenn Hicks with a presentation to his family at Monday night’s work session. State Rep. David Shepard presented a replica of the signs and copies of the General Assembly’s resolution to Hicks’ widow Barbara and their children Monday night. “No Tennessean is more deserving of this honor,” Shepard said after reading the resolution passed by the legislature and signed by the governor in March. A Charlotte native, Hicks was a decorated pilot with the US Army Air Corps during World War II, including flying a P-47 Thunderbolt on four D-Day missions and a B-52 during the Berlin Airlift. He was shot down over France and received the Purple Heart and Air Medal, among other awards. After 24 years in the military, Hicks returned to Dickson where he was an auctioneer and realtor for 45 years until his death in March 2011.
