Bob married Mildred Roth in 1955 and they raised their family in Burstall while still being able to enjoy farm life. Bob excelled in many sports; baseball, curling, bowling, as well as enjoying a good day of fishing or relaxing playing his guitar. Bob moved to Medicine Hat in 2014 to be closer to his daughter Robbie and medical care. The residents at South Country Village always knew when Bob was coming because they could hear him whistling and they gave him the nickname “Whistling Bob”. A small graveside service will be held at Burstall Evangelical Cemetery on Friday, May 14th, 2021. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, attendance will be by invitation only. The family of Robert Heeg would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at the dialysis unit, as well as the nurses, doctors, and all the staff at South Country Village.
