At just 19, John T. Jack Hickey was the first to report VE day to his unit while working {motorola DP2600 two way radio|{2|Two} way Radio|Walkie talkie} communications for the U.S. Army.
Mr. Hickey served in Europe during World War II, and was a witness to history. He arrived in time for the brutal Battle of the Bulge, and later provided security during the Nuremberg Trials.
While overseas, the younger Mr. Hickey would use technology the field that would guide his life and employ skills he had learned as a teen lab assistant at Motorola.
Mr. Hickey, 88, a door-to-door car-radio salesman who would become chief financial officer at Motorola, died June 7 at his Glenview residence after a brief illness.
From building Motorolas first semiconductor plant in Arizona to leading long-term planning events, Mr. Hickey played a key role in the companys evolution. He had lifelong ties to the company; Mr. Hickeys father was a friend and adviser to Paul Galvin, founder of Galvin Manufacturing Co., which became Motorola.
Mr. Hickey was involved in the advances Motorola made during his 50-year career, from the big radios to the transistor radios that we used to be able to slip in our pockets when we were in school, to huge TVs to small TVs, said Kathy Barrie, one of Mr. Hickeys five children.
Mr. Hickey had one of Motorolas earliest cell phones, the size of a couple of bricks.
He loved technology. The father of five once took his family to the Motorola Museum in Schaumburg for a reunion to show off the kind of {motorola DP2600 radio (ascilikvepastacilik.org)|{2|Two} way Radio|Walkie talkie} he used in the war: My dad pointed out the model of the radio, which would be like lugging around an oxygen tank. It was just huge and heavy, Barrie said.
Mr. Hickey had already met the love of his life before shipping out. Her name was Joanne Jaye Keating.
My mother was a real beauty, said Barrie. Dad pursued her from the other side of the world, writing her letters and letters. When he came back, he just set his sights on mom.
The two married in September 1949.
I have never seen two people be such units. They just were all the way through, just ridiculously in love with each other, Barrie said.
The two traveled the world as Mr. Hickey rose in the ranks at Motorola; there were business trips to Japan and China, to Korea and the Philippines.
They visited Normandy in 2006 one of their last big trips where some of Mr. Hickeys WWII history came to light.
It was a very profound experience for him, Barrie said.
Mr. Hickey didnt talk about his military service until his later years. When his son Jim brought home a middle school assignment asking his father to describe his service in World War II, Hickey just said no, his son recalled.
But memories came flooding back in his later years. Barrie said she noticed her dads calendar just days before he died. He had marked down VE Day on May 8 (for Victory in Europe, marking Nazi Germanys surrender) as well as D-Day on June 6.
He was really thinking more about those days, Barrie said.
Even after retiring, Mr. Hickey kept up with technology. He read books and newspapers on iPads. He loved emailing. And he loved Google Earth.
Hed just marvel at what the industry was capable of. He really had such zest. He did in most things. He was an enthusiast of the highest degree. He loved new things, Barrie said.
In retirement, Mr. Hickey spent time with his family. He also volunteered on behalf of his alma mater, Loyola Academy, and was on Motorolas board of directors for 10 years after he retired in 1985.
He became very nostalgic in his later years, always saying God Bless you, said Jim Hickey.
He was a man who very much recognized the blessings that his life had. He was a religious guy, and we laugh about this, but in his last year, he would say God bless you about 300 times a day, he said.
Besides his wife, Mr. Hickey is survived by children Kathy Barrie, John, Mike, Jim and Roger, 20 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and one great-grandchild on the way.
