Cape Gazette NEWS FRIDAY, APRIL 28 - MONDAY, MAY 1, 2017 35 James D. Hicken Sr., family support system James Donald Hicken Sr., 73, of Lewes, passed away Sunday, April 2, 2017, surrounded by fam- ily and loved ones. Jim, a proud Delaware native, was born and raised in Wilm- ington and was a proud graduate of PS DuPont class of ‘62 where he was captain of the basketball team. Jim served six years in the Del- aware Air Force National Guard and continued his career with United Electric Supply. He then opened DelTel Business Systems. Jim had many passions in- cluding sports, m u s i c a n d fa m i ly. He coached many youth sports teams. His love of sports and music was handed down to his grand- children. He was able to at- tend years of wrestling matches, football and baseball games with his grandson Casey and all-day equine competitions and band concerts with his granddaughter Hailey. He was an ever-present support system not only in sports but in his grandchildren’s lives. Jim’s legacy will be that of family, loyalty, integrity, honesty, sportsmanship and kindness. He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Edith Hicken; his brother Charles “Bud” Hicken Jr.; and his son James Donald Hicken Jr. He leaves to cherish his daughter Sarabeth Hicken; his grandson Casey Fagan; grand- daughter Hailey Marshall; as well as his siblings, Frank Hicken, Elbert Hicken, Edith Jarrell, Myra Wisniewski and Joyce Hotal- ing; sister-in-law Betty Hicken; and many nieces, nephews and friends. Thank you to the many that have shown such love and sup- port to make sure Jim was able to leave us with dignity and in comfort: Dr. Brian Prigg, Dr. R. Prasad, Meals on Wheels and Delaware Hospice. Per Jim’s request there will be no funeral services. There will be a private memorial held at future date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, please do- nate to Meals on Wheels, your local youth sports league or your favorite charity. Professional services entrusted to Bennie Smith Funeral Home, Millsboro. Obituaries » James Hicken Tidewater establishes interconnection with Lewes BPW Tidewater Utilities Inc. recent- ly announced the completion of a critical water main intercon- nection between Tidewater’s Rehoboth District and the Lewes Board of Public Works water system. This interconnection allows for the provision of water service to both parties for resiliency and emergency response purposes. Tidewater constructed a 60-foot- long water connection under Kings Highway in Lewes and installed an 8-by-16-foot vault, consisting of large flow meters, valves and piping. This will enable both organiza- tions to better track and monitor water flow in and out of each of their respective systems. “The Lewes Board of Public Works is proud of its record of providing the highest-quality and most reliable water service to our customers,” said Darrin Gordon, BPW general manager. “As a safeguard to that record of reliability, we have partnered with our neighboring water pro- vider, Tidewater, to ensure that if an emergency should occur, our customers will still have water. This became very useful as we recently initiated a major main- tenance project on our water storage tank. While our water treatment facility is capable of providing water without the tank in service, a level of confidence is provided by having the intercon- nection in place with Tidewater.” Earlier this month, White Marsh Environmental Systems Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tidewater, began a five-year contractwiththeBPWtoprovide 24/7 operations and maintenance of BPW’s Howard Seymour Wa- ter Reclamation Facility and the 33 wastewater pump stations.
