Jon Trickey Obituary
Trickey, Jon
1968 - 2017
Jon "Trick" Trickey was born April 21, 1968 in Missoula, Montana and died August 30, 2017 in Westerville, Ohio. What he did with his time here on earth will never be forgotten. His genuine kindness to others, having never spoken a mean word about anyone (except Donald Trump), his ability to see talents and value in those around him, and then guide them in a natural way toward self-revelation, along with his brilliant mind…made him a man who everyone wanted to call "friend". Trick graduated from Reynoldsburg High School in 1986 and earned a Bachelor of Science from DeVry University. He was the "Grandfather of IT" at SafeAuto Insurance, until his entrepreneurial spirit led him to SkyWirez, where he served as CEO. He was passionate about his motorcycle, computer gaming, Amazon shopping and was a self-taught gourmet chef. He played guitar with the group "Jester" during the 80's and 90's and never lost his love for music. He is survived by his devoted wife, Carrie McCain; father George Trickey; daughters Michelle and Denise Trickey; grandson Jonathan Trickey who affectionately called him "Papa Trick"; step daughter Divina Lapid; brother Ralph (Kathy) Trickey and their daughter Rachel Moyer; his very close friend and former wife Bev Vaughn; aunts, uncles, extended family and an amazing circle of friends were not only there for the good times, but stepped up during the hard times as well. He was preceded in death by his mother, Darlene Trickey and his first wife, Alice. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Saturday September 16, 2017 at 2pm at First Unitarian Universalist Church, 93 W. Weisheimer Rd., Columbus, OH 43214 with Rev. Eric Meter. Trick's positive attitude helped in his battle with a glioblastoma brain cancer. He donated his body to The Ohio State University Medical School, in hopes of advancing medical research. A charity will be designated for donations in lieu of flowers at a later date. Please visit, www.schoedinger.com to view Trick's tribute page.
