James B. Hickey Oct. 3, 1930 Feb. 5, 2013 After a brave effort to overcome complications from heart surgery, Jim Hickey died peacefully at Marin General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Joan, and their children Shannon Lenke (Rob) and Martin Hickey (Jeff Darcey), his children from a previous marriage, James Hickey Jr. (Suzan), Julie Compton (Jim), and Jill Hickey, six grandchildren and one great grandchild. Over the years Jim & Joan enjoyed remodeling their home, as well as taking on various construction projects for family and friends. His many talents and willing nature earned him the gratitude and respect of all. He was an avid follower of the daily news and had a prodigious memory for historical facts, making him an unbeatable opponent in a game of "Trivial Pursuit". He will be remembered and missed by all. A memorial service will be held at St. Rita's Catholic Church, Fairfax CA, Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 11:00am. An Irish Celebration of Jim's life will follow at the family home from noon-5pm.
