Robert Eugene Hickey, 84, entered into rest surrounded by his loving family on April 10, 2019 in Manteca. He was born to late Gregory and Augusta Hickey on September 1, 1934 in Oakland, CA.
   Robert leaves behind his adored wife of 64 years Dolores Hickey of Manteca,  his children, Susan Marie Hickey of Clovis, Robert Gregory Hickey (Martina) of Stockton, Katherine Ridout (Steve) of Livermore and Diane Frances Oertwig Hickey of Manteca. He was blessed with seven grandchildren, Amy Paulson, Raymond Cancel, Michael Hickey, Ashley McManus, Nicole Ridout, Derrick Oertwig, Taylor Caddy and six great grandchildren, Brandon Paulson, Bailey Paulson, Hazel Cancel, Islay Caddy, Madison McManus and MacKenzie McManus.  
   An Oakland native Robert retired in Arnold and finally Manteca after 25 years truck driving for Teamsters. He was a hard worker and in his down time enjoyed spending time outdoors. He loved to ski on snow or water it didn’t matter as long as he was out in the open. He was a runner and felt great peace while doing so. Robert was ever so proud of being on the Woodbridge Softball team up until his last years.
   Robert loved his wife and family dearly. He was soft spoken, but with his children he was stern but ever so loving. He was a special grandpa to all his grandchildren and was their biggest fan. Robert will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be deeply missed.
