Charles M. Hickel 1926 - 2019
UTICA - Mr. Charles M. Hickel, age 92, passed away on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his family.
Born in Utica on March 4, 1926, Charles was the son of the late Richard and Mary (Harp) Hickel. He was raised and educated locally. A member of the Greatest Generation and a proud veteran of the United States Army, Charles served his country with honor from 1944-1946 during World War II stationed in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater of Operations. On September 6, 1948 he married the former Agnes Carrock with whom he shared 65 blessed years prior to her passing on July 11, 2014. They were the best of friends and partners through life's endeavors.
Charles worked at Chicago Pneumatic where he served as a Supervisor as well as a Foreman for over 34 years, the position from which he retired. At home, he was a good family man, especially loving and respectful of his wife. He had a passion for people and for doing good deeds. He was a member of the American Legion Post #1290, the former Syrian-American Club, and enjoyed bowling for many years. He was a parishioner of St. Louis Gonzaga Church.
Charles is survived by his daughters, Linda Hickel, and Diane Hickel-Brady, both of Utica. He held close to his heart the memory of his son, Richard C. Hickel who passed away on July 25, 1998. Charles had a very close bond with his grandson, John Brady, Jr. and Lillian May Rose Brady, who was Charles' great-granddaughter and godchild. He also leaves his grandchildren, Joseph T. Hickel, Nicole A. Hickel, and Richard C. Hickel Jr. In addition, he leaves his many nieces and nephews, especially acknowledging Amy L. Carrock who always offered her loving, heartfelt care and support and Renee DeFrank who was also his godchild and who jokingly called him "Charlie-the-Tuna"; special niece, Donna Barady and family, several great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, in-laws, Fred E. Carrock, Mary Carrock, and Dolores Carrock; special friend, Lee Spiro; and the blessing of beautiful neighbors and friends who were so kind. He was predeceased by his sisters and brothers-in-law, Nellie and Joseph Hobaica, Ziana Hickel, Genevive and Tufic Kalil, and Jennie and Charles E. Barady; and his in-laws, Raymond Carrock, William Carrock, Theda F. Carrock, and Joseph G. Carrock. Charles also had many happy times with his late Aunt Evelyn and late Uncle Joe Srour.
The family is grateful to his Home Health Aides, Tris and Maira for their loving care and compassion.
