Christopher John Heck Sr., 50, of Rutland departed this life on January 18, 2014.
He was born in Rutland April 29, 1963, the son of Edward and Virginia (Cameron) Heck.
He attended local schools and his first job after school was at Killington Corp. as a snowmaker. Later, until he was disabled, he worked as a roofer and painter.
Christopher loved nature and the outdoors — hunting, fishing and working in the woods were a source of great joy.
The family wishes to thank “friends of Bill,” both professional and personal, who stood by him in his lifelong struggle.
Surviving are his mother, Virginia, of Rutland; his son, Christopher J. Heck Jr.; two brothers, Henry Heck (Kim) and Peter Heck (Susan); his special friend, Elizabeth; and by his former wife, Linda Heck-Groce.
He was predeceased by his father.
There are no visiting hours.
Funeral services will be held Thursday at 1:00 p.m. at Christ the King Church. Officiating will be Rev. Justin Baker, pastor. A reception will follow.
