Joseph F. Hickey II, a consultant and former insurance executive in St. Louis, died Tuesday (Sept. 16, 1997) at his home in Charlevoix, Mich., after suffering a heart attack. He was 55 and also had a home in Ladue.

Mr. Hickey, a longtime resident of the Central West End, was active in a family-owned insurance business here from 1969 to 1983. Since then, he was a consultant for several area banks.

Born and reared in St. Louis, he graduated from St. Louis Country Day School. After he earned a bachelor's degree in 1964 from Yale University, he served as an officer in the Army for four years. A memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Friday at Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church, 9450 Clayton Road, Ladue. The burial will be private. Among the survivors are his wife of 30 years, Katherine Hoy Hickey; two daughters, Emily King Hickey of New York and Katherine Eugenie Hickey of Eugene, Ore.; two sons, Thomas Myron Hickey of Atlanta and Justin Shepard Hickey of St. Louis; and two sisters, Judy Engelsmann of Ladue and Melissa Chamberlain of Clayton.
