Obituary for Elwood Elliotte Heaney

November 28, 2018
Doylestown, Pennsylvania


Elwood Elliotte Heaney 84, of Doylestown Pennsylvania, passed away on November 28, 2018 with his loving family by his side.
El was born in New Jersey on October 23, 1934. He served his country honorably in Korea as a member of the United States Air Force. He spent 33 years of his career working for Prudential Insurance and took an early retirement, so he could spend time enjoying his family and some of his favorite hobbies. He loved woodworking, camping, fishing, playing golf, watching any sport, using his skills as a craftsman to help family and friends, and never missing one of his grandchildren's events.

El is survived by his wife Nancy of 62 years, daughters Ellen Thompson (David) and Lisa Van der Gaag (Kurt), and son John Heaney (Jean). El was extremely proud of all his grandchildren, Nicole Thompson, Michael Thompson, Robert Heaney, Eric Lee Heaney, Lexxi Van der Gaag, and Tori Van der Gaag. He will also never be forgotten by those in his extended family as well as his many friends.

We all know how much El loved to feed the birds around his home so all who wish to honor his life are invited to hang a bird feeder at their home in his memory. El never liked being the center of attention and per his wishes there will be no memorial services.

A special thanks to all those at Doylestown Hospital for their loving care and support.
