Beloved brother and friend, Steve Hickey, passed away in his home in Marin County on Wednesday November 7th.
Steve was raised in Massachusetts by his parents George and Agnes, and graduated from Boston College High School in 1972 where he was an outstanding student and member of the soccer team.
Steve began studying Film & Communications at Emerson College in Boston in the fall of 1972. In 1975, he transferred to the San Francisco Art Institute to continue studying film. He later managed various sporting goods stores and was involved in the import of skis and snowboards, traveling to Japan and Europe for his business.
He was widely read in history and modern literature, and would often entertain friends and family with his witty sense of humor. He traveled extensively throughout South America, China, Vietnam, France, Germany and Austria, but always returned to San Francisco where he resided for the last 37 years. For over 20 years he has managed various nightclubs in North Beach.
He is remembered by his loving family - brothers Dr. Thomas Hickey of NM, and Jim Hickey of VA, by his mother Agnes Hickey, and by his many friends in the Bay area.
A Time of Remembrance will be held at Monte's Chapel of the Hills Funeral Home, at 330 Red Hill Avenue, in San Anselmo on Thursday November 15th at 1pm. A celebration of his life will follow. He is missed and loved by all those who knew him.
