Passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on February 13th, 2015 after a courageous year-long battle with cancer. A true gentleman in every sense of the word.
Loving husband to Joan. Proud and devoted father of Paul (Kris) and Lynn (Paul). Cherished and involved “Poppa Bob” to Jane and Nora, Andrew and Patrick. Dear brother of Gary (Anne), T. Nelson (Liz), Ron, and brother-in-law of Lorna Finley (Jack), Jane Wilby (Tom, predeceased), Ed Hickey (Mary, predeceased), Frank Hickey (Mary), and Bill (predeceased, Jean).
During his 78 years, he left a lasting, gentle and quiet mark on all those he touched. With lifelong partner Joan he had a 52-year marriage that was rooted in family, true parenting, providing and community involvement.
Bob was immensely passionate and dedicated to General Electric over a career as a draftsman that spanned 40 years. He embraced his profession’s transition from drafting tables, pencils and rulers to computer-assisted design with a sparkle in his eye and a spring in his step.
His love for his Church, and in particular, St. Anne’s Parish, may have been even stronger than his love of the Habs and the Petes. Bob was one of those guys who quietly, behind the scenes, made places like St. Anne’s tick. Cutting grass, repairing pews, whatever it took. Back in the day, when its church league hockey and softball teams wore the purple and gold, Bob was a coach, manager, league convenor and president. He made huge personal sacrifices so that his children could pursue all of their passions. All he ever asked was that you give it your all and loved what you were doing.
Arrangements out of Peterborough. Funeral Mass in St. Anne’s Church on Thursday, February 19th at 11:00 am. Interment. Reception to follow in the St. Anne’s Parish Hall.
In memory of Bob, a donation to one of his favourite causes, Casa DeAngelis, would be greatly appreciated.
The Hickey family is grateful for the professional, passionate, compassionate team of palliative caregivers in our community that made the past few months so good.
