Please accept my deepest sympathies and prayers.

My sincere condolences to the Hickey family. My father, Marvin O'Neal, worked with Ron Hickey in Fallon, Nevada from 1971-1972. Although I was only nine years old at the time, I remember Ron as being a very kind and generous person. It is amazing that I still remember his personality from 43 years ago! I'll be the first to mention that Ron was a VERY avid and accomplished chess player. My father was also a very good chess player and loved to talk trash--especially when he played and beat me...

My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Ronnie and I "ran around together" while students at Erie Cathedral Prep and I remember him fondly. Bob Fitzmaurice, Clearfield, PA

Dear Hickey family:

Ron was truly a treasure to work with. Donna & Mark, his Unisys colleagues have captured the essence of the person I knew. As a customer I always appreciated his work ethic, honesty, perspective, and dry wit. Working with Ron was always a pleasure. May the many good memories of Ron as husband, father, grandfather, and father-in-law comfort you in the days ahead. Ron and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers at Sunday mass.

I was so sorry to hear of Ron's passing. He was so kind and helpful to me when I started to work at H & R Block. He was a lot of fun and really enjoyed the challenge of his work. He loved his chess and billiards, and enjoyed explaining the fine points of his game. I will miss him.

I was saddened to hear of Ron's passing. He was a very kind and caring person. His family are in my thoughts and prayers.
