It is my understanding that he is my biological father... However I do not have any proof of this. My recollection is that he lived in central Louisiana for several years after 1967, since I knew him in about 1972. He and my mother (Linda Plylar was her name then) and I went crabbing in the Gulf of Mexico that summer.
I'd like to contact Mr Hicks if that's possible... for medical history reasons if nothing else.
