He grew up in Page, Arizona where he attended Page High School. Some of Richard’s best times were when he volunteered as an assistant coach for the 1974 Little League champs, the Tigers, and when he worked as a chef in various Page restaurants.
Richard was kind and friendly, and usually entered the room with a good joke to share.
He will be remembered for his cheerful laugh and unique humor. Richard was predeceased by his parents.
He is survived by siblings Michael Hickman (Mindy), Karen Bush (Sam), Laura DuPaix (Les), Grant Hickman (Anna), Merry McGuire (Patrick), and Melody Adams (Dan), and James Hickman, and his many nieces and nephews. Some of the words used by his family to describe Richard are “gentle giant,” giving, and enthusiastic.
