Kenneth Hix was a Lafayette native who grew up in Natchitoches. The couple met at Northwestern State University. He was a graduate of the LSU Law School.

Missy Lynn Toups was a Galliano native, who worked to put Kenny through law school and provide for their family while he started his practice.

"Both Missy and Kenny loved the Acadiana community. Though neither one ever attended class at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, both were honorary alums. Missy and Kenny were avid supporters of Ragin Cajun athletics, and could often be found at UL games. Devout Catholics, the couple found numerous ways to give themselves to the greater Acadiana Community. Through their activities with Lourdes Hospital, the VA Hospital, Angel Air, United Way, and the Miles Perret Center; Missy and Kenny’s first thought was always of helping others," their obituary reads.
