Obituary for Thomas Leo Heeg

THOMAS LEO HEEG, 79, of Galena, Ohio and formerly of Springfield, passed away Sunday afternoon, February 18, 2018 at Country View Nursing Home, Sunbury following complications of COPD. He was born in Springfield on April 19, 1938, the son of the late Charles Heeg and Alice (Gruber) Heeg Moots. He had spent the past four years in the Columbus area, to be near his family, as his health declined.

Tom worked for his entire adult life for International Harvester, retiring as a production scheduler. He was always grateful to have such a job to provide for his family.
However, at heart, Tom was truly a musician. He could play most songs on the piano, organ or accordion. In high school, he played brass and in retirement, took violin lessons for fun. Tom brought so much joy to many people through his passion for music. He passed on his love for music to his children-giving each of them the privilege of music lessons and the lifetime joy music provides.

He is survived by his children, Marc Heeg (Lara Wisner), Susan (Sam) Smith and Katy (Michael) Van Dromme; grandchildren, Summer and Garrett Baker and Evan and Alex Van Dromme; and great grandchildren, Violet and Theo Baker. Also surviving is an aunt, Shirley Farmer and three step children, Jeff, Patrick and Debbie Wilcox and their families. Tom had the joy of being ‘Grampa’ to many of Bonnie’s family members. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, whom he missed every day, Bonnie Jean (Larimar) Wilcox Heeg and an aunt, Betty Metherd.

Tom's funeral service will be held at 12:00 p.m. Friday in the LITTLETON & RUE FUNERAL HOME with Pastor Joe Stoll officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will be in Ferncliff Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the COPD Foundation, 3300 Ponce De Leon Blvd., Miami, Fl 33134 (www.copdfoundation.org).
