Remembering the Life of

Charles Parker Hix

Febuary 24, 1932 - May 6, 2023

Charles Parker Hix was a wise, articulate man that was well respected among his community. He never hesitated to do what was right and was always willing and able to step into leadership. He was a lifetime member, teacher, and Deacon at Cowan First Baptist Church. He sat on the Franklin County CO-OP Board of Directors for many years during his career as a farmer and he raised many Champion Shorthorn Cattle that were shown and sold across the United States. While his weeks were long and often messy, he could always be found in a clean suit on Sunday morning holding the hand of his wife, Mildred McCall Hix of Carthage. Charles was a rock to any and all who knew him well, a shining example of Christian compassion. But more than all these, and most importantly to him, he was an exceptional son, brother, cousin, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. He will be greatly missed. Charles is survived by his daughter Vickie and her husband Dean Simerly, his son Mike and his wife Jill Hix, brother, Doug (Pat) Hix, and all of his grandchildren and great grandchildren: Charlie Simerly, Michael Hix, Jenny Hix, Haley Hix, Mason Hix, Leo Simerly, Miles Simerly, and Noah Hix. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, from 10:00am -11:00am at Cowan First Baptist Church with funeral service following at 11:00am. Interment will follow in Franklin Memorial Garden. Moore-Cortner Funeral Home 300 1st Ave NW, Winchester, TN 37398, (931)967-2222,

The Memory Wall

David McDonald

Mike and Vickie. So sorry to hear of the passing of uncle Charles. I have many good memories of spending time in Cowan as a little boy. Especially with the airplanes. I was unaware of the funeral and would certainly have been there. He was a Godly man and was respected. God bless you all. Would love to see you both again. Maybe we can this year.

Hey Mike and Vickie. Your Dad was such a good man. Those pictures brought back such great memories of time spent on the farm with all the laughter and the mischief and then when our mothers would start giggling and wouldn't be able to quit. Charles didn't talk about his faith much but it was always there, always solid as a rock. James said "Show me your faith without your works and I'll show you my faith by my works." That was uncle Charles. Steadfast, humble, hard-working and faithful.
