Jeffrey Bicknell, age 53, of Attica, died suddenly Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at home in Attica. Jeffrey David Bicknell was born February 26, 1967 in Lapeer, MI. He was the son of Donald and Gladys (Parnicky) Bicknell. Jeff grew up in Attica. He was a graduate of Imlay City High School. Jeff was a “jack of all trades,” and because of the care that he put into everything he did, given time, he could have mastered them all. Jeff had a natural knack for anything mechanical. He had several jobs as a mechanic, and also once owned his own business as a mobile mechanic. Jeff was not only able to fix anything, but you knew that whenever he did something it was done right from start to finish. The job he had the most passion for was farming, more specifically, as owner/operator of Bicknell Farms. He did all of his own maintenance and repairs on all of his tractors and equipment around the
farm, and he was always there for any of his family and friends when they needed a helping hand. Jeff and his sidekick Coco, his beloved chocolate lab, who was around him more than his own shadow, also found great joy exterminating any critters that could do damage to their property. Jeff loved to make people laugh, usually by telling funny stories about his past. Jeff’s laugh was unmistakable, and will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.
Jeff is survived by his daughter, Tiffany (Larry) Bullock, Jr.; his three grandchildren, Kale, Kaden and Adelyn Bullock; his son, Trevor Bicknell; his parents, Donald and Gladys Bicknell; three sisters, Debra Verbeke, Mary (Howard) Hoover and Diane (Jay) Cameron; his brother, Donald (Mishelle) Bicknell, Jr.; and thirteen nieces and nephews.
