Jack Allen Heishman, 74, of Edinburg, VA, died at his home Friday, May 31, 2019.

Jack was born January 9, 1945 in Woodstock, VA and was a lifelong resident of Edinburg.

He worked as a salesman for 52 years at C.E. Thompsons and Sons.

He had many interests including farming, gardening, canning fruits and vegetables, and watching sports. He raised pigs, cows, and chickens on his family farm. In the spring and summer, he spent many hours tending his garden and canning both the food he grew and the food he enjoyed purchasing weekly at the Shenandoah Valley Produce Market.

Jack loved all sports and in his younger days he bowled on the Duck Pin Pro Tour. He even holds a record at the Shenandoah Bowling Lanes for having the highest set in Duck Pin Bowling.

His favorite sport to watch and play was baseball. He played baseball from the time he was a young child and he always looked forward to playing in the Ole Timers baseball game every fall.

He was an avid supporter of the Woodstock River Bandits and instilled his love of baseball in both of his grandsons. He enjoyed practicing with them in the backyard and attending their games. He could be found most evenings and weekends watching his grandson, Brayden, play for the Stonewall Generals and his travel teams. Recently, his youngest grandson, Anderson, began playing tee ball, and he enjoyed cheering him on at each game.

Surviving are his wife, Deborah; his daughters, Tamara Heishman (Greg) and Jamie Pence (Justin), both of Edinburg; two grandsons, Brayden Hovatter and Anderson Pence; and four siblings, Janet Hottle, Karen Cook, Lois Hoover, and Daniel Sam Heishman.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Luther and Kathleen Heishman.

A private service and burial will be held.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Stonewall Jackson High School Home Run Club or the Woodstock River Bandits.
