Dwayne V. Hickman, 58, of North Chesterfield, VA passed away on November 07, 2021 in Chesterfield at Lucy Corr Nursing Home following a long illness.

Dwayne was to say the least a huge Manchester United Fan. He was also active in football playing in CASA, then CVSA. He played tennis with his friends and golf. Dwayne loved watching Formula 1 as well. He was a fan of everything English which included James Bond, Doctor Who, Wimbledon, Pink Floyd, The Who and The Open, among other things.
Dwayne is survived by his partner of 16 years Lani; his mother, Wendy of Bishops Cleeve, Cheltenham, England; brother Jonathan of South Carolina. He is also survived by his two children, Christopher and Britainy, whom he loved very much; and three grandchildren, Silas, Ezra and Alistair.
A private memorial will be held at a later date.

To say this wonderful man had an impact on me is not nearly enough. Upon our meeting so many years ago, I was instantly taken by his passion and unique ability to make me feel like he was always a friend. I didn’t know them that he would be a great part of my life until his untimely passing last week.
Dwayne was an original. He was intelligent, compassionate, and an amazing influence. He had so many talents many would never imagine. We shared the same birth year, the same basic loves and interests, the same number of children and a similar outlook. I am so blessed to have known a soul so wonderful.
His passing leaves an immense emptiness. I feel selfish. I wanted so many more years to laugh, to love and share what we had. He was so special and I am a bit lost.
So fortunate to have seen him one last time a few weeks ago. Still listening to ManU and making me forget my small and unimportant problems. So many regrets that he would not be with us all longer to share with us his wonderful perspectives and humor.. I loved him like a brother and I am so blessed that I was so fortunate to have known this wonderful person. All the best. I hope to see you soon.
I am absolutely devastated to have found Dwayne obituary today. It was a pleasure to have been part of the family that helped to raise him. Dwayne came to live with us when he was almost 3years old then left to live in America at 17 yeas of age.
All my heartfelt condolences to Dwayne’s family and friends. All my love
Dwayne was a lovely man, and we are grateful to have able to spend some fun football times with him and Lani. He will be missed. We are keeping you in our thoughts, Lani. Sincerely, Julie and Dave
