Obituary for Daniel Joseph Hickey

HICKEY, Daniel
(Teacher, Arnprior & District High School)
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Daniel Joseph Hickey of Arnprior on Monday evening, August 13th 2012 at the age of 54 years. We find some comfort in knowing he has been received into the loving arms of his late mother, Audrey (nee Mears). He will be sadly missed by his father, Joseph Hickey (D’Ann Huth). Devoted husband and best friend of Rennie (nee VandenBerg). Proud and loving father to Joseph (Caroline Wang) and Meaghan (Jake Fraser). Dearly loved brother of Laurie Robertson (Norm), Brian Hickey (Cathy) and Mary Ellen Procher (Gord). Loved son-in-law of Louise VandenBerg. Dear brother-in-law of Rutger VandenBerg (Dolores), Lucy Wachowicz (Dan) and Marie Salcioglu. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews and countless friends. Dan was a passionate fisherman and avid outdoorsman always seeking a new lucrative fishing hole or adventure. A teacher by profession, his natural ability to instruct extended well beyond the classroom and his willingness to help others was always clearly evident. He will be remembered by those closest to him through his mantra to “work hard, play hard and be nice to everybody.” Family and friends are invited to pay their respects at the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel Ltd., 50 John Street North, Arnprior on Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in St. John Chrysostom Church, Arnprior on Saturday morning, August 18th, 2012 at 10 o’clock. Cremation to follow. In memory of Dan, a donation to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (www.ofah.org) “TackleShare” program would be appreciated by his family.
