1947 – 2022
Putnam – On November 20, 2022, Cliff entered into his eternal home after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Newark, NJ and served in the U.S. Navy as a Seabee from 1968 -1974. His early employment began as a meat cutter in many local supermarkets and an European Company in Plainfield. He had a brief ownership of “Cliff’s Home Improvements” until being employed at Home Depot for 19 years from which he retired. He served as an Assistant Scout Master for Troop 25 in Putnam. Cliff was a loyal member of the Putnam Baptist Church where he served on many boards and committees throughout the years. Most importantly, he was a devoted family man who loved his family beyond measure. He was a kind, loving, peaceful man of God knowing how to display wisdom in a very quiet manner that was all his own.
Cliff loved all the peace the ocean could hold. He enjoyed a stroll, fishing and boating. He was a “Mr. Fix It” for many! There was always a project to be accomplished with his knowledge and skill. He will remain in the hearts of all those he loved and who loved him.
He leaves behind his wife, Veronica F. Heimall, of 51 years; his sons, Lance E. Heimall (Michelle) and Anthony F. Heimall (Jennifer Light); sister, Carolyn Otto (Jeffrey); grandson, Seth A. Heimall; and granddaughter, Rosalyn M. Heimall; many in-laws; cousins; nieces; nephews and very dear friends. He was predeceased by his parents Clifford and Doris Heimall, Sr. and his precious granddaughter, Emalyn D. Heimall, who was truly a song within his heart!
A “Celebration of Life” will be held at Putnam Baptist Church, 170 Church St, Putnam, CT 06260, on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at 12 noon. Interment will be private. Donations in his memory may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or Putnam Baptist Church. Cremation services have been entrusted to the Gilman Funeral Home, 104 Church St., Putnam.
