Robert Charles John Hick

Age 74 of Glen Margaret. It is with great sadness that the family of Robert, beloved husband, father and grampy announces his death on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at the VG Site, QEII. Born in Bermuda and raised in Hackett's Cove, Robert was the beloved son of the late Charles and Odessa (Boutilier) Hick.

Robert was a carpenter by trade, followed by three years in the Royal Canadian Navy. The majority of his career was spent as a Refrigeration A/C Mechanic until his retirement in 2002.

Robert was happiest when surrounded by family and friends; lending a helping hand or keeping busy at whatever task presented itself. Robert was known to his Grandchildren as “Grampy can fix it.” He had a passion for his wife Doreen and dancing: his two loves. He enjoyed hunting, camping, canoeing, baking, and old time country music, along with his sidekick Rex. Robert will be remembered for his sense of humour and his kind and caring ways but most of all his big heart.

Survived by his wife Doreen (Hubley), Son Lohn, Stillwater Lake; Daughter Deanna Newell, Glen Margaret; Brother Carlyle (Gloria) Hick, New Minas; Sisters Elizabeth Morash, Denise Hick, both of Halifax; Lorraine Green, Glen Haven; Odessa Southern, Bedford; Grandchildren, Kylee, Jessica, John, Dylan and many Nieces and Nephews. Predeceased by his Sister, Darlene Morash. Funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, November 16, 2019 in the Ronald A. Walker Funeral Home, 13549 Peggy's Cove Road, Upper Tantallon. Special thanks to the staff at the Palliative Care Unit 7A, VG. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or charity of choice. Online condolences can be made to
