This makes me sad. I had hoped to get to see Mr. Heckman at least one more time when I got to Sheridan this spring. He use to stop by and tell me "hello" when he came to shop at Wal-Mart where I worked when I lived in Sheridan. I moved away and spoke with him a couple of times on the phone and told him I had read of his trip to Hawaii and wanted to stop in and see him next time I came to Sheridan. What an amazing man !!! What a beautiful heart. My heartfelt sympathy to his children and grandchildren. May you find strength in your faith and may you find solace in your favorite memories of your loved one. He will be missed !!!

I had the privilege to meet Mr Heckman, last summer. Mr Heckman presented me with his autobiography, that he wrote in 2016. He even signed his book to me. He was a American hero, part of the Greatest Generation.
