From David at Poor David’s Pub:
A sad note about Jim Hicks, bartender at Poor David’s from 1986 to 2004.
He passed away a few days ago in Oregon (peacefully, according to his sister) after complications from a stroke suffered earlier in the year.
Jim was the best “worst” joke teller in the business, and his wry humor will be missed by many.
Jim wanted to be cremated and his ashes spread around the confines of Poor David’s and that is what we shall do.
In 18 years, Jim was seldom late, and never dishonest. A rare combination of qualites in these times.
We will have a memorial service for him in the near future when it is feasible. I’m sure he had some unpaid debts, so perhaps we can send a little cash to his sister.
