Bill Heil Memorial

Bill Heil

Born on September 19, 1954, in Lansing, MI, Bill was taken from us in a tragic auto accident on Wednesday, September 16, 2020.

While growing up in Michigan, Bill cultivated a passion for nature and learning, eventually earning his Eagle Scout recognition. As a graduate of Lansing Eastern High School, Bill spent his time participating in music and student government. It was here where he would first meet the love of his life, and future wife, Marti. Bill continued his educational pursuits and received his Bachelor's degree from Michigan State University, in Advertising & Communication Arts. He would also become a lifelong Spartan sports fan, attending hundreds of events with friends and family for over 45 years.

Bill would use his skills to foster countless successful business relationships and sales throughout his long and successful career with Honeywell, Bull Information Systems and Oracle. Eventually "retiring" in 2018, he returned to his educational pursuits and completed his Master Gardener program through Purdue University Fort Wayne.

Bill was also a devoted and loving father and he took immense pride in both his children; Matthew William Heil of IN, and Amanda Jane Heil of MI. A man of principle and distinguished character, he coveted his relationships with his family and friends above all else. Bill's gentle spirit, relentless passion for learning, combined with his ever-present sense of humor will be missed by all.

Those wishing to honor Bill's memory may do so through contributions to a fund being established to honor Bill's nurturing and kind spirit, and his love for horticulture and nature.
