Governor Brian Sandoval today made the following statement after learning of the death of Pat Hickey’s father, George:

“I spoke to Assemblyman Hickey this afternoon and expressed my condolences on the death of his father, George. George Hickey was a decorated World War II veteran, having served in the Army as a Master Sargent, where he was decorated for his service along the Burma Highway with a Bronze Star. Upon his return from the war, George inherited his father's ice business at Lake Tahoe and started a heating oil business. George also created the first garbage company at South Lake Tahoe with the help of the U.S. Forest Service. Most importantly, however, George Hickey was a beloved father and grandfather and he will be missed. Kathleen and I are keeping Pat, his wife Shin and their children in our thoughts and prayers.”
