Albert “Bud” Heck, 89, of Shoreview, died Oct. 24, 2020. He was born in St. Paul to Louise and James Heck. He attended St. Cecelia Grade School and DeLaSalle and Murray high schools.
After high school, Albert enlisted in the United States Air Force and was stationed in Mountain Home, Idaho.
Following the service, Heck was employed by Deluxe Check Printers, where he worked for over 35 years. He enjoyed his working years at Deluxe and was much respected by his employees.
Bud and his wife Connie were committee members of the Deluxe Retirement Club, which gave them many opportunities to travel overseas, stateside and to Canada. He was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed many family trips.
Bud was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2017. The family was privileged to be able to care for him at home (which was his wish).
He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Constance; children James (Shelley), Douglas (Julie) and Mary Jane (Tom) Housh; six grandchildren; and a great-grandson.
Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Nov. 10 at St. Odilia Catholic Church in Shoreview. Interment with honors was held at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
