USA Rice extends condolences to the family and friends of Kenneth Lloyd Hix and his wife, Missy Lynn Toups, both 59, who died on September 20, in a plane crash near Waco, Texas. Survivors include their two sons, Austin J. Hix and Connor J. Hix of Lafayette, Louisiana.
Kenny grew up in Natchitoches and attended college at Northwestern State University, where he met his future wife, Missy Lynn Toups. Missy worked hard to put Kenny through law school at Louisiana State University, and throughout their life together, she supported Kenny and their sons in any and all endeavors.
In addition to practicing law, Kenny was CEO of oilfield certification and compliance company IntegriCert in New Iberia, and a part owner of Supreme Rice Mill in Crowley.
Devout Catholics, the couple found numerous ways to give themselves to the greater Acadiana Community by their work with Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center, the VA Hospital in Lafayette, Angel Air, United Way, and the Miles Perret Cancer Services Center.
“Kenny and Missy were dear friends and business partners that I’ve known for 25 years,” said Bobby Hanks, CEO of Supreme Rice. “They were both devoted to the Acadiana community and will be sorely missed.”
The family will receive friends on Thursday, September 24, from 4-8:00 p.m. at St. Pius X Catholic Church, 200 East Bayou Parkway, in Lafayette. A rosary in their honor will be prayed at St. Pius at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. Visitation commences at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, September 25, at St. Jules Catholic Church, 116 St. Jules Street, Lafayette; and will continue until the memorial service celebrating their lives begins at 10:0 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in the names of Kenny and Missy Hix to the Diocese of Lafayette, 1408 Carmel Drive Lafayette, Louisiana, 70501.
