Death of Andrew Patrick Dennis Heinemeier

Published

on

Andrew Patrick Dennis Heinemeier, 68 of Bunker Hill, went to be with the Lord on June 29, 2023, at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis. He was born in Jerseyville on April 14, 1955, to John and Lela (Roman) Heinemeier. 

Andy married his sweetheart Ria Norton, on April 1, 1992, in Las Vegas, NV.  There is no greater love story than theirs that grew for nearly 40 years, married for 31 years. Andy and Ria were hosts for foreign exchange student, Jana Geerhardt, which they “adopted” as their own.

Andy affectionately known as “Uncle Honey” by all, worked as a self-employed contractor for over 33 years doing what he loved, carpentry work. This job allowed him to travel all over the USA, working on Federal buildings, from DC to California and all points in between.  He was blessed with being able to go on as many ski trips to Colorado as possible and travel to Germany.  Andy worked for Jarden’s Farms, Bunker Hill and then Nu Way Concrete Forms and Rentals until the time of his passing. 

Andy had the most affectionate smile and the best bear hugs ever always doing the happy food dance after the first bite. He never knew a stranger and always greeted newcomers with “know any good jokes.” Knowing Andy means that you are probably using one of his Andy-ism: “Sure is nice weather we’re having” and many more (if you know you know).  Andy really enjoyed his Hallmark movies, going to the movies, and spending time with family and friends.

Andy is survived by his wife, Ria; “adopted” daughter, Jana Geerhardt(Basti); three brothers and two sisters, Ed (Anita) Heinemeier of Bunker Hill, Tony Heinemeier of Las Vegas, NV, Matt Heinemeier of Bunker Hill, LeAnn Heinemeier of Prairie Town and Cathy Wieseman of Bunker Hill. He is also survived by one sister-in-law and two brother-in-laws, Babette Moorleghen of O’Fallon, Dennis (Linda) Norton, Aledo, IL and Donald (Karen) Norton of Springfield. Andy had many special friends that were family including Steve Bertels of Bunker Hill, Brian(Carrie)Stawar of Bunker Hill, Jon(Jessica)Burris of Bunker Hill, Buzie Bertagnolli of Carlinville, and Josett Franke of Brighton. He had 29 nieces and nephews and 25 great-nieces and nephews.

Andy was preceded in death by his parents, and brothers, Michael Heinemeier, Joseph Heinemeier, Gene Heinemeier and Charles Heinemeier.

Visitation is open to all on Sunday, July 2, 2023, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Kravanya Funeral Home, Bunker Hill, IL with funeral services following at 6 p.m.  Burial will be on Monday, July 3, 2023, at 10 a.m. at St Mary’s Cemetery in Bunker Hill.
