Obituary

 

Michael Jay Heimendinger, age 76, passed away peacefully after a long fight with cancer on November 2, 2017.

Michael was born on June 25, 1941 and raised in Oskaloosa, Iowa. He graduated from Oskaloosa High School and earned an engineering degree from Iowa State University. After graduation, he worked as a civil engineer for Stone and Webster Engineering for over 30 years. On August 27, 1966 he married Joan Kay Davis of Iowa. They had three daughters and made homes in Maryland, Wyoming, Indiana, Connecticut, Colorado, and Massachusetts.  They were happily united until her death in February 2000. He moved to the Villages in January 2003 where he met Mary Ann Bale. His Sweetie was his faithful companion for over 14 years in sickness and in health.

Michael loved traveling, golf, music, and being with friends and family. He had a beautiful bass voice and sang for the Village Voices and the Brothers in Song for many years. He was active in church choirs and community service throughout his life; he worshipped at the Northlake Presbyterian Church in Lady Lake, FL. In retirement, he and Mary Ann enjoyed travelling around the world with cousins, Gene and Jolene Soehl, and dear friends, Bruno and Louise Mediate of the Villages.

Michael is survived by his Sweetie, Mary Ann Bale; three daughters, Marni (Jeff) Frazee of Virginia, Megan (Tom) Infantino of Massachusetts, Melaina (Todd) Raburn of Texas; six grandchildren Keffen and Kira Frazee, Kyle and Erin Infantino, Hayden and Lander Raburn (aka Bud, Katrina, Bubba, Flinkabina, Neesha, and Buck to their Papa/Grandpa); stepchildren Marybeth (Jimmy) Garrett of Arizona, Frank Tomasik of Michigan; step-grandchildren Reid and Griffin Tomasik (aka Bo and Snicklefritz to Mike); sister Sharon (John) Hines of Iowa; nieces Michelle (Bill) Duke of Georgia and Larinda (David) DiGioia of Illinois. He is preceded in death by his first wife Joan Davis Heimendinger and his parents, Melvin and Cora (VanLeeuwen) Heimendinger. Celebration of Life services at a later date.
