Bryan

 

                             

Mark Joseph Fickey, 65, passed away August 12, 2022.

 

An honorable but comical man with a heart of gold, Mark always put the needs of others before his own. His infectious laugh and contagious smile helped him build long, true, and cherished relationships while making people laugh!

 

Mark was born on May 11, 1957 in Corpus Christi, TX to parents Louis and Dorothy Fickey. Growing up in Bryan, Texas, he was a member of Scout Troop 559, played baseball in Junior High, and was a Bryan High School graduate of 1976. He loved his yellow Pontiac GTO, a muscle car that required new tires in less than month while helping him accrue 28 tickets, mostly for speeding!

 

Mark graduated from Law Enforcement Academy and served as a Deputy Sherriff of Brazos County for 31 years, 10 months, and 5 days “not that anybody is counting”.  He was awarded the Medal of Valor, and in 1998, the “Brazos County Deputy of the Year”.

 

He was always building something, shooting guns, dove hunting, boating, or slalom skiing. He loved classic cars, armadillos, tractors, had a green thumb, and was a die-hard American. When a restaurant waiter would ask if there was anything else he could get, “Dad would always say, a small sack of $100 bills.”  He looked forward to the annual Frio River trips, camp outs, meeting his grandbabies, and getting together with family and friends. He rekindled a relationship with the love of his life, Pamala, and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He passed on values to his daughters to do the right thing, always tell the truth, and be a woman/man of your word. But the two greatest days of his life were the births of his daughters.

 

Mark is preceded in death by his beloved dad, Louis Fickey; brother, Matthew Fickey; grandparents, Joe and Alma Fickey, and Claude and Letha Mable; numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins; and some great friends.

 

Mark is survived by his spouse, Pamala Bates Fickey; two daughters, Erin and husband Jake White, and Sarah and fiancé Justin O’Keefe; grandchildren, Hadlee, Addison, Leah, and Ellie White; his mother, Dorothy Fickey; and brother, Bobby Fickey.

 

The family would like to acknowledge Brazos County Sherriff’s Office. 

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths”.
