Fred Heiney

 


Funeral services for Fred Heiney, 55, of Williston, N.D., will be held 11 a. m., Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011, at First Baptist Church in Williston, with Pastor Myron Grueneich officiating. Cremation will follow.

Fredrick Harold Heiney was born at Shawnee, Okla., the son of Harold and Deloris (Wheaton) Heiney, on Jan. 29, 1955. He was raised in a Christian family, and the family moved often to serve the works of the Lord as Fred's father was a Baptist minister. The family moved to Ponca City, Okla., when Fred was 3, then the family moved to Hammon, Okla., and remained there for eight years. The family then moved to Havre, Mont., for four years and then later to Pine Ridge, S.D. Fred graduated from the Oglala High School in Pine Ridge, S.D., in 1973. He attended college for a time at South Dakota State in Brookings. He returned to Havre and began what would become a 35-year career with Halliburton.

Fred was united in marriage to Tonia Gates at Havre, and to this union two sons were born. Like his childhood, Fred's adult life required many moves to satisfy his commitment to family and his employer, Halliburton. The family lived in Havre, Cut Bank, Belfield, N.D., and Williston, N.D., where Fred worked in all areas of the Frac Division, Cement Division and Acid Division for Halliburton. When not working, Fred enjoyed time with his family, and he had a love for hunting and fishing. He earned his "dream hunt" in 2004, when he was able to take his father and others to Alaska to hunt and fish.

Fred was a devoted husband and father. His church was important to him. He was baptized in the Baptist Faith as a child and continued his works in the church and became a deacon when the family was living in Dickinson.

Fred died at the Billings, Mont., clinic on Friday, Jan. 21, 2011, after a battle with cancer.

He is survived by his wife, Tonia; two sons, David (Lea) Heiney and Fred Heiney Jr., all of Williston, N.D. ; two granddaughters, Makayla and Makenzie Heiney; his parents, Harold and Deloris Heiney, of Buffalo Gap, S.D. ; his sister, Barbara (Alan) Maughn, of Aurora, Colo. ; two brothers, Joel (Judy) Heiney of Sioux Falls, S.D., and Lawrence (Ann) Heiney, of Jenison, Mich.

He was preceded in death by all of his grandparents.

In lieu of flowers charitable donations can be made to the Billings Cancer Clinic in memory of Fred Heiney.

Friends may call at the Fulkerson Funeral Home in Williston on Monday from 1 p. m. to 6 p. m. and one hour before services at the church on Tuesday.
