Edwin Eugene Heck: 1933-2017

Dec 20, 2017

Edwin Eugene Heck, 84, of Cottonwood, Arizona, passed away peacefully on Aug. 26, 2017, at Valley View Care in Cottonwood in the company of his wife, Dolores Heck, and daughter-in-law Lori Heck.

He was preceded in death by his first wife of 43 years, Diane Duff Heck, in 1999.

Ed was the eldest son of Merle and Myrtle Heck, born on Jan. 30, 1933, in West Alexandria, Ohio. He graduated from Roosevelt High School in Dayton, Ohio, and attended University of Dayton.

After attending college, he joined the Army, which brought him and Diane to Fort Lawton, Washington. After his service in the Army, Ed and Diane settled in Edmonds, WA, where they raised their four children. Ed worked for Boeing for 30 years, spending the majority of the time in the Materiel Division in Everett, WA, where he developed many friendships along the way.

In 2001 Ed married Dolores, and they made their home in Cottonwood. They both enjoyed trav-eling and spending time with family. Ed was a generous man, always there to help family and friends. He always enjoyed a good project and his can-do attitude was instilled in his children and grandchildren, who he was always proud of.

Ed is survived by his children: Cheryl (John) Pregent (Alison and Ryan); Douglas (Pamela) Heck (Christian and Natalie): Gregory (Lori) Heck (Keely, Cameron, Taylor); Lisa (Harold) Under-down (Joshua, Jacob and Jared); and wife, Dolores Heck and her children James Eiseler (Tif-fany), Steven (Kim) Eiseler (Steven and Kara), Robert (Caryl) Eiseler (Aaron and Mitchell); and great-grandchildren Nathan and Kolson, and his brother Stephen Heck.

We will be celebrating Ed at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Heck House, 338 Eighth Ave. S, Edmonds, Washington.
