Dr. Michael James Hickey
4/12/2020

Dr. Michael James Hickey was born on February 9, 1954 in Chicago, Illinois. Known for his preppy and vibrant choice of clothing, historians argue as to whether or not he, in fact, originated the “popped collar.”  As his family and his patients knew well, Dr. Hickey lived his life on his own timetable. He left this world unexpectedly in his sleep on April 12, 2020 at his home in Hinsdale, Illinois. Dr. Hickey was 66 years old. He leaves behind his wife, Ann; his son, Sean; his daughter-in-law Mairead; his grandchildren, Madeleine and Eamon; his daughter, Megan; his son-in-law Gavin; his son, Brendan; his mother, Joanne “Jaye”; and his siblings Kathy, John, Jim and Roger. 

Dr. Hickey grew up in Glencoe, Illinois and graduated from Loyola Academy in 1972. He attended Georgetown University, Class of ’76, and went to work trading yen. Hickey’s life was transformed by two big decisions. The first was the choice to leave trading and commit to more than a decade of schooling in order to become a reproductive endocrine physician. The second, was his decision to patronize “The Snuggery,” a popular tavern on Division Street, one night in October 1983. That's when he met Ann Bartlit, a beautiful nurse who also loved to dance. They were married in 1985. A residency and a fellowship later, they opened the Hinsdale Center for Reproduction in 1991. Brendan joined Sean and Megan in 1992 to complete their family of five. In his 29 years as a reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. Hickey helped bring more than 5,000 babies to couples who so desperately wanted to start and grow their families. His wife kept the practice in ship shape as nurse manager.  “All pregnancies are a miracle and the result of something magical,” Dr. Hickey often said to his patients. He made magic every day for nearly 3 decades and had hoped to continue practicing infertility medicine for many years to come. 

Dr. Hickey never wanted finances to be an obstacle for families who wanted to start a family. The Life Foundation is a local nonprofit formed in 2013 to help defray the financial challenges of infertility treatment, adoption or third party reproduction. Dr. Hickey’s family welcomes donations to the foundation in his name, which can be made online here: https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/NjcwMg==  Dr. Hickey’s favorite hobbies were sailing, playing the drums, and spending time with his family. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no services are scheduled. His family is hoping told hold a celebration of life service after the current restrictions on public gatherings have been relaxed. Arrangements by Adolf Funeral Home – Willowbrook, IL 630-325-2300 or adolfservices.com

Thomas Butvilas, Tommy or Tommy Bud, age 57, long time resident of Berwyn, IL passed away on April 11, 2020. He is survived by his loving wife Joan Butvilas, his three favorite girls, Carolyn (26), Erin (25), Kelly (23), fur-son Bud (11), fur-grandson Charlie (3), sisters Debbie and Lisa, and brothers Jerry and Mike along with many more family members. As a lifelong Cubs fan, one who was fortunate enough to cry at a Cubs World Series, he instilled a love of baseball in his three girls that will continue to live through them. He enjoyed a day at the racetrack and was an avid Jeff Gordon fan. He liked few but will be loved and remembered by many. He was a strong man who continued to fight even when he was critically ill. He waited until he could talk to the love of his life, who were married 30 years, to pass away peacefully and become free of all the pain he was feeling.  Leaded by Angles he is greeted in heaven by Mickey (Kathy) Judkins, Bob and Bobby Hojnacki, Regis Lisowski, and many other family members. Waiting in the Bleachers at Wrigley Field with open arms and an endless supply of Stella and Pina Coladas his mother Carol and brother Scott Butvilas welcome him to their true home at the field. In lieu of flower we would kindly ask that you donate to charities, funds, or give food to those that are giving to the Coronavirus Pandemic or any Cancer fund or charity in Tommy’s name.
