Obituary for Donald William Heidecker, Jr.

Donald William ("Bill") Heidecker, Jr. born December 20, 1941, passed away peacefully on February 5, 2018. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia, as the only child of Dr. D. W. Heidecker, Sr. and Marianna Moore Heidecker. Bill attended Atlanta Public Schools and was an Eagle Scout. He continued his education at Emory University and Emory Dental School. He was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity while at Emory. He entered the service of his country as a Lieutenant in the U. S. Navy. Upon discharge from the Navy, he formed a dental practice with Drs. King, Sanderson and Heidecker for 40 years. He was then affiliated with Dr. Tom Godfrey which he thoroughly enjoyed. He married Cynthia Russo of Pine Plains, NY, the love of his life on October 7, 1978. Bill loved life and his patients. He was a master carpenter and could build or fix anything. He suffered a stroke 6 years ago but through the courage of his conviction and the help of God he made a rather miraculous recovery. He then became an active volunteer at the Shepherd Center and was most proud of helping other stroke victims in their recovery. He loved his time at Lake Burton in the home that he and Cynthia built. He is survived by his loving wife Cynthia and his devoted dogs Mitzi and Willy. He will be sorely missed by all who crossed his path. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to the Shepherd Center. A memorial celebrating his life will be held at 12 pm on the 10th day of February, 2018 at Carmichael Funeral Home, 2950 King Street, S.E., Smyrna, Georgia. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
