Tom Hickey

Tom was born in Dec 1962 in the Bronx, NY much to his great surprise. 

In 1976, his parents moved to upstate NY; fortunately, Tom was able to find them. 

He went to HS and college in upstate NY, and in other places until they got tired of him sharing his confusion with others.  Along the way, he learned about computers, and mathematics, earning degrees in both.  He also learned how to read really fast, primarily because they wouldn't let him take the books home. 

A long time later, he met Lucy, who after getting over her initial fright, found Tom to be kinda cute in a weird way.  They were married a couple of times, just to make sure they got it right, and they have been blessed with two beautiful children, Ryan and Sean.  Tom was present at the births of both of these wonderful boys, primarily because he didn't want the doctor hitting them, and SOMETHING had to make them cry! 

In 1995, Tom & Lucy started investigating the LDS church, and after the initial reservations of the local Ward, were baptized in January of 1996.  A year later, they received their endowments, and during a trip to Utah in August 1997, were sealed for time and all eternity.  Having finally gotten it right, they went back home, relieved. 

Having been stricken with an illness in 1999, Tom is retired, and writes music of all kinds, and in June 2000 released a CD of some of the very best Jazz music.  To see some of Tom's work, click here.

You can be sure this little "biography" is as objective as possible, because Tom wrote it himself.
