Tom was born in Columbus, OH, August 4, 1940 to Richard and Marian Heekin.

He retired after 38 years as a VP of Worthington Industries and lived in Sedona since 2003.

Tom was a man who never filled the air with empty words. He was a very humble and generous man who led and taught by example, not words. When he spoke, people listened. It was usually profound, accurate, or humorous " never offensive or argumentative. If he disagreed with you, you may never know.Tom loved spending time with his family boating and swimming at Lake Cumberland KY. He had a great love of music, photography, tennis, and reading.

Plans will be made in the future for a memorial gathering in Sedona as well as Ohio.
