Daniel “Danny” D. Heiliger

Daniel “Danny” D. Heiliger, 70, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday morning, Jan. 29, 2014.

Memorial service is 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 3, at First Baptist Church of Weatherford.

Danny was born Dec. 23, 1943, to William “Bill” and Nellie Heiliger, in Hinton, Okla. He married his high school sweetheart, Joy McCallister, in Fort Worth in June 1963. Born to this blessed union were a son, David Daniel, and a daughter, Wendy Lynn.

Danny made his lifelong career as an electrician where he has worked on many projects from local hospitals to convention centers, assembly plants and refineries. He also owned a construction business where he built over a dozen homes around town. Most of his career was spent as a union electrician with IBEW Local Union 116 in Fort Worth. “Dancin’ Dan Heiliger” left a legacy as a gifted tradesman, a practical joker and a very well-respected man and friend.

Danny claimed to have had a good life and among all of his accomplishments, he is most proud and honored that he married the love of his life. His greatest legacy was the love that he left for her. He will be missed greatly and his passing will leave a deep hole in the hearts of many. We will all remember his passionate conversations about politics, his cantor and jokes he loved to tell and play. He loved sharing his trade and his wisdom with his children and grandchildren.

He is survived by his beautiful wife of 50 years, Joy; his son, David, and wife, Michelle; daughter, Wendy; grandchildren, Zachary David Heiliger and Jordan Cooke; granddog, Sabine; and many other family and friends.

Danny was preceded in death by his parents; his oldest brother, Buddy; and his grandson, Tyler.
