How are David Lee Smith ( whose picture was recently posted ) and Kent Hicks , both of whom graduated from HHS, Class of ' 59, related.

I think David and Kent were brothers-in-law.

You got it. I did not know until we had our 50 th class reunion that Kent was David's uncle. Didn't Chief Hicks first wife die? For some reason, I can't remember that. I am thinking he had 2 wives.

Thanks for answering.

I would like to see this keep going.

Can someone else post some Hamlet trivia?

Yes, Uncle and nephew. David’s Mother Bea Hicks Coleman was Kent’s half sister. David Lee passed away in 2018. - Dan Hicks
