Joseph Jude Heinan

Joe Heinan passed away suddenly with his family at his side, and Beatle music playing in the background. He always had a smile on his face for his family and friends. He was a proud and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. He loved fishing with his kids and he was always challenging them to a game of pool or darts. He enjoyed woodworking and woodcutting and helping all his friends with their projects splitting wood and building decks to fixing windows, gates, and sprinklers. Joe worked for the US postal service for 34 years and making many friends along the way from Redding, Lake Tahoe, Gardnerville, and Coleville. He gave me the best 35 years of my life. A celebration of life was held with a Coors Light toast by his children, Tricia Gettings, Leah Chirico, and Graham Heinan and many friends and family.
