Dick always made sure to let Phillip, Hailey & I know we were family & welcome at the house anytime. When we spent time together he always had a smile on his face & we would just laugh & enjoy our time. He is loved & greatly missed.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

I miss you, dad. You taught Rich, Rob and I what it means to be a good and loving man. I don't think I'll ever get over the fact that you aren't here anymore. Your selflessness and love will never be replaced. You were always there for us. Now you're with Mom, Rich, Grandpa Trickey, Jimmy, and Grandpa Hill among others. Give them all a hug and kiss for me. See you when I get there. I love you.

I pulled this picture from Jim Hill's Phone. He was sentimental, so he had a very old picture of Dick, Ida and the boys. Jim loved spending time with Dick. They always managed to make each other laugh. Hopefully, they'll reconnect on the other side.

Dick and I had the same birthday, one year apart. I first met Dick this year when he called me to paint his kitchen cabinets. We developed an instant bond and for days, we talked about so many things. He loved God and Country. He was a Trump supporter, as was I. He was gracious and kind. I never heard him complain about anything and marveled at how well he could get around. Dick was a person one was grateful to meet and have as a friend. As with all of his family and friends, we wish we could have had one more day or visit with this incredibly kind man because each moment, each minute and second with Dick enriched us. The comfort will feel at this point is knowing that you are in heaven, in a perfect body, without pain or illness. May you rest in total peace. I was so fortunate to have met you. Happy trails until we meet again...in heaven.

Biography

Richard Allan Trickey (Dick), 67, passed from this life on November 5, 2020, in San Diego, California. He was born February 24, 1953, in Los Angeles, California to Dale Bertrand Trickey and Laura 'Jane' Trickey.

He attended James Madison High School in San Diego, California and graduated in 1971.

Dick and his wife, Ida Mae Hill, were high school sweethearts and married on October 23, 1971, in San Diego, California. They were happily married for 45 years, until Ida Mae was called to Heaven on April 21, 2018.

Dick’s passion for sports began in his youth when played baseball and football. He dreamed of playing high school football. In tenth grade Dick made the team at Madison High School. During the preseason he had surgery to remove a cyst from his back which ultimately ended his ability to play football. Dick went on to coach several Little League baseball teams, some of which were with his brother Jeff. When Dick’s three sons, Richard Allan Trickey, Jr., Phillip Dale Trickey and Robert James Trickey reached playing age he began coaching their baseball teams. Dick coached his son’s teams until Robert, the youngest, was too old to play youth baseball. In addition to coaching, Dick spent time as the president of the Mira Mesa Little League.

Dick’s adult life was dedicated to Ida and his three sons. He was a Cub Scout leader for several years, helping his sons work their way through the ranks. He was constantly taking his family to events such as swimming lessons, bowling leagues, beach parties, camping trips, the Del Mar Fair, Disneyland and holiday events including Christmas on the Prado and the San Diego Holiday Boat Parades. Dick loved celebrating Halloween. One year he created a haunted house so extravagant that the local TV news aired a story on him. He loved to work with his sons building model cars, airplanes and even had a fully functional model rail road suspended from the rafters in his garage.

Dick was a talented man. He played lead guitar in a garage band and enjoyed playing guitar throughout his life. There wasn’t a broken water pump or alternator he couldn’t fix and he taught his sons everything he knew about cars. He built closets, installed tile floors and countertops, installed a home surveillance system (with a little help from his Daughter-in-Law, Darcie Mclain) and just about anything one could do to improve their home. He was a master on the barbeque and was always willing to cook for his guests. Dick was a human road map. He could give you directions anywhere. He loved road trips. Countless times, Dick drove with his family from San Diego to Bloomington, Nebraska to visit Ida’s parents, Jim and Rose Hill.

Dick worked a few jobs in his teens and early twenties before being hired, in May of 1974, by a company that would ultimately become Sysco San Diego. Dick was a truck driver and proud Teamster for over twenty years before moving in to Sysco’s office. In the office, Dick held several different positions including warehouse supervisor, transportation supervisor, customer service representative and router. If you ever asked Dick how he was doing, he was sure to respond “Real fine!” Dick retired from Sysco a couple months shy of his forty-first anniversary. He loved many of his coworkers and kept in touch with several of them throughout his retirement.

Dick loved Rock-n-Roll. Everything from the Beatles to Black Sabbath to Metallica and Megadeth. He specifically asked for these lyrics from the Megadeth song 'À Tout Le Monde' to be included in his eulogy;
Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard
The sleeping feel no more pain
And the living all are scarred
So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all
Please smile when you think about me
My body's gone that's all
