Paul H. Heil Obituary
HEIL, Paul H.

Paul H. Heil, 86, died peacefully in his home on the morning of Saturday, June 23, 2012. Mr. Heil was born in Elgin, Nebraska on
February 6, 1926 to Jacob and Eleanor Heil. He lived in Nebraska as a young man, until he served in the Army for his country during World War II. Upon his return home, he attended Iowa State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering in 1951. In 1954, Paul Heil married Joan Suzan Freihammer and settled in California shortly thereafter. He worked as a electrical/power engineer for 40 years at Alice Chalmers, Aerojet, and finally at Southern California Edison when he retired in 1991. Paul and Joan loved their families and friends very much and enjoyed many years of laughter and joy together as they provided a wonderful life for their four children. Paul was a parishioner at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Covina for 50 years. He enjoyed gardening, horse racing, traveling and stock trading, but his greatest joy was his family.

Mr. Heil was preceded in death by his parents, Jacob and Eleanor Heil; loving wife, Joan Suzan Heil; son, Timothy Paul Heil; and sister, Monica Penne. He is survived by a loving family: sons, Michael Anthony Heil and Matthew Christopher Heil (Naomi); daughter, Carroll Heidi Hoekwater (Rick); daughter-in-law, Margaret Scaturro Heil; grandchildren, Julie Sediq (Jamal), Denise Holloway (Seth), Scott Hoekwater (Kim Bonson), Jennifer Hoekwater, Joseph Heil, Andrew Heil, Timothy Heil, and Jonathan Heil; sisters, Arlene Eischeid, Eleanor Starman, Della Zeimans, Rita Wright, Mary Shoemaker (George). He was also extremely proud of his 1-year old great-grandson, Ryker Hoekwater. Our beloved brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend will be dearly missed.

A Celebration of Life was held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Monday, June 25, 2012. Burial Service will take place at Forest Lawn, Covina, on Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 10 am.
