In Memory

Daniel Heggie

Daniel Heggie

SFC Daniel "Dan" James Heggie, US Army (Ret.), 76, was called home on Thursday, September 3, 2020. He died peacefully at his home.

Dan is preceded in death by his mother, Helen Marie Woodside; stepfather, Nevin Woodside; father, Samuel Stewart and daughter, Susie. He is survived by his beloved wife, Yong Hui; sons; John, Daniel, Jr. (and wife, Anna), Paul (and wife, Carly); daughter, Kimberly (and husband, Billy); nephew, Corey Allen; sisters, Carol Allen, Eleanor Schenker (and husband Kerry), and Mary Beth Pritchard; eight grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

Dan was born September 18, 1943, in New Kensington, Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn Hills High School 1961. He honorably served his country in the US Army for more than 20 years.

Following his retirement, he was employed at the US Reserve Bank of Cleveland. Dan was active in his church and faith. In 2016, he and his wife moved to Columbia, SC, where he became an active volunteer at Victory Ranch, which aids active military members.

If and when Dan ever relaxed, he loved to go fishing, whether he caught a fish or not. Dan loved staying busy and always had a project going. He brought a smile to everyone he met.

He fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. A private graveside service with full military honors be held at Fort Jackson National Cemetery in Columbia, SC. Shives Funeral Home, Trenholm Road Chapel, 7600 Trenholm Road Ext., Columbia, SC is assisting the family.

Danny and I have been best friends since the beginning of time. That little runt and I were the origional Pete and Re-peat of Spring Grove Road and Cresant Hills. What one didn't think of; the other did.

                       Thank God for the 50th Penn High reunion. Danny and I got together then after 50 years;and walked the old neighbor the next day.We have always stayed in touch since then. He raised a beautiful family; and was a commited Christian. He was a beautiful person.This is the saddest of days for me. I will miss him deeply. Good by, Jeves
