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.

Heimall Family I am so sorry for your loss. Cliff was one of the kindest people I ever met. He surely will be missed.
I’m so sorry Lance to hear the loss of your Dad and to your Mom and brother my sincere condolences
Cliff, my cousin, was like an older brother to me. As growing up we shared many wonderful memories. I will never forget that special bond we shared. He will be greatly missed. My sincere thoughts and prayers go out to Ronnie, Lance and Tony
I worked with Cliff at the Depot for17 years both of us in plumbing. As nice a man as you could find. God speed.
Cliff was a good man and a friend! I’m so distraught knowing he’s gone! Love you brother,until we meet again!
We’re so to hear of your loss. Cliff was a great guy. We remember him from our days in the youth group at the Baptist Church.
How I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will hold you in his arms. I was blessed to know the family.
My condolences to you and the family on the loss of Cliff. He was truly one of the good guys. I will always remember going to the mall when I was younger and he and I sat on a big rug that looked like a chess board. But we played checkers. What a hoot. His memory lives on in my family. Mom and Dad loved you so much, I’m sure they took a little time out of their busy schedule to welcome him at Heaven’s Gate. Much love to you.
